Spring is Here! Come Celebrate at the San Francisco Garden and Flower Show!

Posted on March 23, 2012



Celebrate our first weekend of Spring at The San Francisco Flower & Garden Show (www.sfgardenshow.com)!   Taking place NOW, through Sunday, March 25, there are 20 stunning full-size garden displays by talented landscape architects, designers, artists and builders. Now with a greener approach that celebrates “Gardens for a Green Earth,” this annual festival will be held Wednesday – Sunday, March 21-25, 2012, at the San Mateo Event Center. 

With the new Green Show theme in mind the “garden creators” work all year dreaming up their designs and coordinating the construction of their gardens which are built in four days. They will bring in tons of materials including plants and huge trees, building facades, furniture, and large pieces of art. A show sponsor, Lyngso Garden Materials, delivers all the boulders, stone and pebbles for the gardens. All the gardens reflect ways of creating beauty without harming the environment.

Strolling through the gardens and getting a chance to enjoy some peaceful time inside the unique creations is quite a treat.  Each garden has something unique and unexpected to discover! We’ve added some photos to our Facebook page —  check out our gorgeous photos of what’s happening in the gardens!  You can find the photo album here.
