Urban Oasis at the 2016 San Francisco Flower & Garden Show

Succulent Gardens Urban Oasis

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.)

Step by Step

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!

Making a plant list for the garden:

Ready to welcome visitors!
