Open Day Gardens in Southern Marin

The Garden Conservancy continues to astonish and delight with its Open Days Program. Earlier this month, I visited two outstanding gardens in Southern Marin. The first, located just outside Stinson Beach, features remarkable granitic outcroppings. 


Lisa Gimmy Landscape Architecture is a professional consulting firm offering master planning, site planning, and landscape design. Since its founding in 1992, LGLA has designed landscapes for schools, campuses, boutique hotels, buildings, public parks, estates, and private residences. At LGLA each project is viewed as an opportunity to explore a series of relationships: between the site and the region, architecture and landscape, and most importantly, between the landscape and the people who will use and enjoy it.
