P-G: Mt. Lebanon tour to visit 7 gardens

Seven Mt. Lebanon gardens will be open to visitors during the 21st annual tour from noon to 5 p.m. July 10.

A large garden on St. Clair Drive features mature trees, a waterfall and walkways. A garden on Roycroft Avenue showcases perennials in containers, an arched pergola and a shady backyard garden.

An informal garden on North Meadowcroft Avenue makes use of a sloping lot and perennials. Gardening in side and backyards was the goal of owners at a home on Parkview Drive. More than 130 rose bushes are featured in an English-style garden on Longridge Drive. A less formal, organic garden on Osage Road in Virginia Manor uses sustainable growing practices. A garden on Shadowlawn Avenue belongs to landscape designer Claire Schuchman, co-winner in the large garden category of the PG's Great Gardens Contest in 2008. Filled with shade-loving plants, the garden includes formal beds, a water feature and wooded areas.
