Rethinking Your Yard? Let's Get Growing for The Changing California Landscape.

Each one of our CA Landscape 2.0 design templates was inspired by popular styles of landscaping with a focus on water-wise plant selectionsstylish accessories and efficient irrigation. Because we are a local, independent, family-owned garden center with established roots in the Sacramento Area, we've got a pretty good idea of what grows well in our area. Our plant options are not limited to what we showcase in the designs–we offer many substitutions to make sure your landscape reflects your style.

Finishing touches: Bird baths, hummingbird feeders, pots filled with seasonal flowers, and a comfy chair for wildlife-watching.

Sure to appeal to those with simple, elegant style, the contemporary landscape focuses on sculptural plants and clean lines for a modern feel. Bold accents such as slate contrast strikingly with textural plants like Acacia 'Cousin Itt'. The contemporary landscape is the perfect backdrop to an outdoor dinner party on a summer evening. 

Finishing touches: Refined pottery in eye-catching colors, a soothing fountain, and a modern outdoor dining set.
