San Francisco Garden Tour

Gabrielle's Garden, 11am-1125am:

This Alamo Square treasure is a contemporary vertical garden created by Gabrielle Cameron in back of a classic SF Victorian. The garden consists of a large collection of epiphytes and bromeliads. Visually decadent while providing a sanctuary for the owners in the heart of the city. "Quiet, handsome and exotic."

Dino's Garden, 1140am-1210am:
When we asked Dean Oullette how he would describe his garden he replied, "A Bay Area version of California Cottage; toss Sunset Magazine and go hiking in the country. This garden is an ongoing experiment in how to artfully nourish a sense of wonder while integrating multiple uses in a small space."

Garden 3, 1230pm-1pm: 257 Joost Ave

Ted Kipping's collection of some of the most fabulous and unusual plants. The garden started it's life as a simple city lot, how it has been transformed will blow your mind. He describes his garden as a "rocky outcrop in a cloud forest."

Mike's Garden, 120am-150pm:

I created and maintain this garden, a quintessential Bernal Heights cottage garden with mixed borders including historic zen botanicals used for alter displays along with big dose of English garden inspiration: roses, viburnums, clematis, plums, weigelias,...."

Nader's Garden, 210-3pm:

The elegant and masculine city garden of Nader Meykedah. A personal garden designed equally for living and enjoying from the deck. The living structural elements frame an abundance of greens and flowers. The garden is shared by Nader's adorable dogs, Paris and Coco.

We will end the tour in Nader's garden. He has graciously offered to share nibbles and drinks. We will hangout until approximately 3pm, when we will all return to our own gardens with new ideas and refreshed perspectives.
