Huei Young is once again offering tours of her Asian garden in North Davis this spring as a benefit for Yolo Vision Aid 2013, which provides free eye exams and eyeglasses to Yolo County senior citizens and children in need.
Young’s garden is a blend of Chinese and Japanese styles and uses the placement of wood, stone and water features to create a soothing, tranquil atmosphere. The shoji-screen fence along the back provides a natural light background to enhance the sculpted evergreens and Japanese maples.
The garden has been featured on the HGTV website and in the book “Great Gardens in Small Spaces.” To arrange a visit for individuals or groups, visit hueisgarden.com.
Tickets are $25 per person and free for children, or $20 per person for groups of more than three. Proceeds from the tours will benefit Dr. David Kira’s vision program for locals in need. For more information about the program, call Kira’s office at 530-756-5040 or visit the clinic at 635 Anderson Road, Suite 1, in Davis.
