Planting Seeds of Inspiration


A fall garden tour will offer ideas to gardeners who want to turn their yards into peaceful sanctuaries.

Four homes in West Lake and two homes in the Cambridge section of Watervale will be the site of the Augusta Council of Garden Clubs’ fifth Peek-A-Boo Fall Garden Tour. This will be the first time that the bi-annual garden tour features homes exclusively in Columbia County.

The gardens on this year’s tour will include a wide range of horticultural interests, such as maple trees and unusual fruit trees; creative water features; a distinctive garden shed and a greenhouse built of vintage windows.

Tickets can be purchased online at (Peek-A-Boo Fall Garden Tour) or at participating homes the day of the tour.

The tour benefits community education and beautification projects of the Augusta Council of Garden Clubs, which represents 17 active clubs with more than 500 members. ACGC has a rich history of service through projects such as Blue Star Marker, Gordon Highway Beautification, Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House and the Perennial Garden at Riverwalk Augusta.
