Designing a California native garden, whether you are starting from scratch or adding to an existing garden, is an exciting journey, and we are here to help! Here are the various ways you can learn a lot and have fun, making a California native garden.

Do It Yourself (DIY)

  1.  We will answer your questions, make plant suggestions and to the extent possible, discuss your overall design with you. If you bring photos of the area to be planted that would be helpful.
  2. Our 9:30 AM Saturday instructional workshops are always free. Check our website for schedule and descriptions.
  3. Our website is considered one of the best in the industry. Lots of information and inspiration, always new content available, check the blog for essays and ideas.
  4. In ‘Casa La Paz’, our unique bookstore we carry over 400 titles on all things California, with emphasis on garden design, horticulture, botany, and outdoor lifestyle.
  5. We often see our customers meeting for the first time during their nursery visits, comparing notes and sharing their stories and experiences in their own gardens.
