Top Spring Garden Tours in DFW | 2022 Edition

April 28, 2022

Celebrate our beautiful DFW landscapes and get inspired by attending one of the local garden tours near you. I took care all of the googling and put together the most organized list for all of my fellow garden tour fanatics. Also just typing out loud, but wouldn’t this be the cutest date idea ever?

Checkout my organized list below and please attend as many as you can. It’s such a unique experience and I as always like to give the utmost gratitude to all of the homeowners, organizers and volunteers that make these tours possible. I can’t be the only one that sees a beautiful frontyard and has to wonder what is blooming behind that fence. This gives you a chance to peek into another world and to learn and share from each other. Be sure to check back for more updates as the dates near and I will update my blog as needed. Most all of the tours are rain or shine so pack an umbrella just in case. It poured last year and my Mom and I did not let that deter us from a fun event. I remember us laughing about how crazy gardeners and we were surprised, but not really that so many kept on touring along. We already know that we are not afraid to get dirty, so what’s a little rain right?

This tour is hosted by the Celina Garden Club and it was such a treat to attend their last tour. They host the tour every two years and this year the tour winds through the picturesque countryside of Celina, providing stunning views of its vast farmlands and gently rolling terrain as well as rare glimpses at several of area’s most impressive gardens.

Food offerings will be available and are still in the works. Right now they have planned for fresh prepared appetizers, food trucks, and jar items to take home. Checkout some highlights below from the 2017 Celina Garden tour that I personally took.

Another tour that I always like to mention is the North Texas Water Garden Society Pond Tour. The tour is on June 11th & 12th and it is a 2 day self guided tour of 36 of their member ponds all across the Dallas Metroplex. The tour also consists of several ponds that are on the enchanted night tour that are open till 11:00 p.m. Instead of tickets they sell a tour book guide for $20 which features the pond listings, descriptions, directions and color pictures. One book per carload will get you access to everything. See the Pond Tour page for more details.

I also wanted to mention that some of the Garden Clubs like the Southlake Perennial Garden Society alternate every other year, so if you don’t see your favorite tour on the list, they will likely be hosting their tour next year.

I am always looking for additional tours to add, so if you know about any other gardens tours for 2022 please make sure to share them with me. I want to get the word out so these amazing organizations can have the best turnout possible as they use their proceeds for scholarships and educational community events.
