Dry Gardens 3.jpeg

The Dry Gardens demonstrate an alternative approach to local gardening and landscape design, an uncommon one that works with natural precipitation patterns, requiring less chemical and energy inputs to succeed. The plantings include shrubs, succulents, cycads, and cacti that come from climates that are like our own, ones with a strongly seasonal rainfall pattern.

The Upper Garden: Several garden areas contain mosaics made from broken or cut brick. The inlaid patterns feature leaves, flowers, flamingos, snails, and other natural shapes. Additionally, a variety of fine sculptural art can be found tucked into the landscape. The Gardens’ history, period architecture, forested areas, aquatic features, theme gardens, dry gardens, and open vistas contribute to Pinecrest Gardens’ unique appearance.
