NORTH BALTIMORE - The North Baltimore Garden Club is once again holding a garden tour in the village. This year it will be held on Saturday, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Maps of the town with the garden locations marked will be available the day of the tour at the North Baltimore Great Scot Grocery Store, located on Ohio Route 18 as you come into town from the Interstate 75.
One of the tour coordinators, Caprice Cheney says the North Baltimore Garden Club has done this tour for a number of years. There was no tour last year due to heavy road/sewer construction in town.
"We do this to showcase our community and the people who work so hard to keep it looking so nice," Cheney says. "Our town is full of neatly kept homes with perennials and plants, and we want to acknowledge our neighbors. We consider it one of our community service projects."
In addition to organizing this tour and maintaining their own gardens, the club also has adopted several public flower beds and which they plant and maintain them each summer. Members also have taken on the task of creating a landscaped area in front of the new middle/high school which is under construction.
Cindy and Greg Leonard home, 3776 North Baltimore road, North Baltimore.
Carol Allison's home, 615 Northview, North Baltimore.
Garden club members are selling 50/50 tickets to raise funds to help pay for the school area.
Listed below are the gardens with the addresses, being featured this year on the tour, along with the club's descriptions of what tour guests might see.
• Danielle and Tim Engard, 505 North Third Street
The Engard home is surrounded by beautiful plants and hardscape. A large trellis leads into the back yard from a bricked area between their garage and home. Tim has been busy putting down bricks to create additional seating areas. Many perennials as well as annuals are featured, along with some very fun ornaments. Their home sits on the corner of Cherry and Third, and it catches the eyes of all.
• Shelly and Tom Hillard, 706 Maple Street
The Hillard  house sits in a newer area of town, and looks nice every season of the year. Their home is surrounded by lush green lawn, and their backyard features a large fenced in area with a gorgeous koi pond. Annuals and perennials are scattered throughout. Fun outdoor seating and a fire pit complete their awesome back yard.
• Carol Allison, 615 Northview
Her home is near the Powell School, and sits among beautiful flower beds. Both sides of the home feature perennials, as well as a large flower bed in front of their home. She has some stunning hanging baskets featured on her front porch. Be sure to check out their neighbors' yards as well, many homes in this area are very nicely landscaped.
• Jacob Ford, 103 Smith Street
His home is an adorable cottage-style home that just makes you want to stop and check things out. He has several very nice perennial beds, as well as a fun backyard area.
• Cindy and Greg Leonard, 3776 North Baltimore Road
The Leonards live in a newer home just north of North Baltimore, with a huge yard. They have spent a lot of time making everything just perfect and it shows. For a pleasant stroll, please stop on your way out of town. The couple also do a great job of Christmas lighting, and it is always a joy to drive past their home.
