Helping you create a wonderful backyard habitat, based on sustainable principles, is what Creative Garden Structures is all about. To aid this objective, we have re-imagined our front yard as a demonstration garden. Come alone, or as part of a group, and learn more about native plants, irrigating with harvested rainwater, and other gardening practices that will help keep Florida's environment healthier.


For those interested particularly in exploring more about Florida's native plants... below is a link to a PDF list of all the natives currently growing in Serendipity Garden. The intent is for the garden to not only provide inspiration and ideas for your own use, but also answer practical considerations such as light requirements, soil needs for individual plants that you may be thinking about adding to your own landscape.

And while you are here, check out the plants and other items on sale in the garden store. Perhaps you'll find that special item you needed for your own developing backyard habitat. We focus on native plants that attract and support songbirds, hummingbirds, butterflies, and native bees. We also sell the nest boxes you might need to encourage wild visitors to stay and raise their young in your garden, whether they are birds, bats, or even native solitary bees. And what about the beneficial insects we so often forget to accommodate? We have items designed to shelter these, as well. 

Group Tours and Programs


Would you like to visit the garden as part of a group? We would love to host your garden club, native plant chapter, civic or school/youth group. We offer a number of guided programs adaptable to varying ages and areas of interest. Programs include:
