2021 Home Garden Tour

Friday, July 9 & Saturday, July 10

9 a.m. - 3 p.m.

Featuring Gardens of  Madison's West Side

Traditional In-person Format

Olbrich’s 2021 Home Garden Tour showcases the skillful stylings of eight private gardens in Madison’s near west side neighborhoods including Fox Ridge, Radio Park, Sunset Village, Glen Oak Hills, Westmorland, and the University Hill Farms historic district.

The delight is in the details and thoughtful plant selections featured in these quiet sanctuaries created by some of Madison’s most notable horticulturists, landscape architects, and garden enthusiasts. Pause by a lush pond filled with colorful koi as a pet tortoise strolls by, or catch some shade under towering century old oaks, a keystone species helping to sustain all forms of life in the garden. Take in the spectacular view of a rolling prairie restoration, the carefully curated garden art complementing famous architecture, or one of the latest garden trends - a low maintenance, chemical free gravel garden, brimming with self-sustaining perennials and pollinators!

The Home Garden Tour provides an invitation for gardeners to share in the rare, the quirky, the beauty, and the conservation opportunities a garden naturally provides.



On July 9 & 10 (tour dates) tickets will be available for purchase at the designated ticket outlet (garden site) -1030 Middleton St., Madison, WI 53717.
