An evolution of the annual Smartscape Tour of Coppell, the Sustainable Home and Garden Tour will expand to include features such as solar, rain water catchments, compost methods and backyard habitats in addition to Smartscape design. The idea of this self-guided yard tour is to provide people the opportunity to talk to homeowners about the real impact of investing in features that can be both beneficial to the environment and cost saving. Tour goers will be able to attend all five stops or pick and choose locations that are most relevant to their interests.
