KAYSVILLE -- Sixteen yards and gardens will be open to the public in this city Friday and Saturday.

Those attending the tour will get ideas on gardening and landscaping as they visit this large variety of yards.

There will be vegetable gardens and beautiful flower beds, as well as landscaping with ponds and waterfalls. Those interested in the free tour may go to City Hall between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m., Friday to pick up maps and directions to the gardens.

On Saturday, the hours are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Not all homes are open on both days. Ten of them are the same on both days, but the other six are on just one day or the other. Those visiting the yards may go on both days.

This event is sponsored by the Kaysville Beautification Committee.

"There will be maps and signs to guide them. They may visit as many as they would like," said Sherrie Rampton, a member of the Beautification Committee.

The maps will specify what type of garden it is, such as a water garden, flower garden or vegetable garden.
