SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --  Garden Guy Dave Owens gave us a preview of the upcoming Real Gardens for Real People Tour in North Scottsdale.

This is the 11th annual tour, and it feature seven amazing gardens, each of which has water attractions, art, metal sculpture and mosaic pieces. Experts will be available at each stop along the self-guided tour to answer your questions on a variety of topics.

The tour is Saturday, March 31, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tour guides can be collected at the Copper Ridge Elementary School located at 10101 E. Thompson Peak Parkway, Scottsdale. That's actually the first stop on the tour. Students there created and tend the beautiful garden. The remains stops are private homes.

Tickets are $25 in advance. Tickets are available online at cals.arizona.edu/maricopa/garden/gardentour.htm and at 24 nurseries and other merchants across the Valley.

On tour day, $30 tickets will be available at Copper Ridge.
