You can be sure your gift to the Gardens on Spring Creek will be used efficiently and effectively to enrich the lives of people and foster environmental stewardship.
Our Xeriscape Parkway Strip represents the “best kept secret” of our gardens. Designed by nationally recognized landscape designer and garden author, Lauren Springer-Ogden, this Parkway Strip, known as the Hell Strip, showcases xeriscape plants that thrive in hot, often inhospitable areas sandwiched between the street and the sidewalk.
Lauren developed her vision for the Hell Strip in her first book, The Undaunted Garden. The Gardens wanted to share this vision with visitors to show that difficult areas can become beautiful with the right type of plant material. Visitors who take the time to see this garden are amazed at the number of plants that can grow with limited irrigation in this tough condition.
