Gardens on the tour include:   

  • Nancy and Jerry Dalton, 1100 Woodland Court – A three-tiered fountain surrounded by boxwood hedges welcome visitors to this lovely hilltop home at the Henderson Country Club.  A gazebo for entertaining and a picket fence for repetition of colorful annuals add to the charm of a low maintenance backyard.
  • Amy and Joey Jameson, 13034 Crestwood Court – An outstanding example of how much outdoor entertaining can be packed into a small, intimate area.  A fireplace, dining area and outdoor kitchen share space with comfortable modern furniture placed in front of a completely sheltered big screen TV.

  • Eric Stinson, 8942 U.S. Highway 41 Alternate – This beautifully landscaped outdoor living area was created to encourage family members to develop individual interests.  Areas for soccer, football, basketball, golf and swimming have been created.  For anyone wanting to invest in an outdoor living area, you must see the wide variety of structures such as the outdoor kitchen, fireplace and waterfall and creek that run to a koi pond and hot tub. 
  • Ruby Moon Winery, 9566 U.S. Highway 41 Alternate – One of Henderson’s real jewels is the vineyard at Ruby Moon.  Tour the house garden, tasting room and gift shop.  Also enjoy seeing the new event center and overnight suite.  Walk along vineyard rows brimming with eight different grape varieties.
