We're excited to share our 2016 garden for the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show. It's a collaboration with Treeline Designz, and it's a true "Urban Oasis." The courtyard is surrounded by stucco walls painted in vibrant shades of orange and blue. A hand-laid patio winds through raised bed gardens showcasing succulents and their companion plants. Nooks for dining and seating are interspersed throughout the garden. Little touches--sculptures and specimen plants--await visitors with a keen eye for detail.
Here are some concept-to-build peeks behind the scenes. (All renderings by Treeline Designz.)
After the design renderings, it's time to assemble the plants.
All show gardens start with a giant pile of mulch.
In Urban Oasis, that fills in the raised beds. First, larger specimens are placed.
Then we fill in for a finished garden!

Ready to welcome visitors!
There is a common misconception that succulents don’t need water, or need very little. While there is some truth in the “need very little” part, the truth is that succulents like water, and they like to be watered deeply.
