Landscape Ontario members from Georgian Lakelands and Waterloo Chapters will showcase their work in The Backyard Glam Tour on July 5 and 6  in Georgian Lakelands and July 6 and 7 in Water region (Hanover).

Described as a one-of-a-kind event, the Glam Tour will feature 15 professionally decorated backyards. Also featured during the event are breakfast seminars with complimentary coffee and pastries, Neustadt Brewery serving beer at The Ground Effects site, and workshops taking place at both host venue sites.

LO’s director of public relations Denis Flanagan will speak, along with information from host venue sites and outdoor stylists talking about how to achieve a completed look in the backyard.

A portion of the proceeds will go toward two local projects selected by the Chapters and a donation will be made to two charities, Beaver Valley Outreach and Hanover Hospital Foundation.

LO members are being offered a special tour rate of $30; the regular ticket price is $50. One ticket handles both regions.

The Backyard Glam Tour is being organized and promoted by Georgian Lakelands Chapter coordinator Deborah Lalande through her company Bleu Venue and former LO trade show manager Paul Day.
