About the Tour
Choose your own adventure!
The Native Plant Garden Tour is a self-guided tour across Greater Los Angeles. Since 2003, more than 700 public and private landscapes have participated in the Native Plant Garden Tour. Ranging from coastal container gardens to modernist foothill estates to experimental urban homesteads, each unique design offers beauty and critical habitat for wildlife. The gardens on this tour contain at least 50 percent native plants.
For a relaxed pace, we recommend visiting 4–7 gardens per day. However, should you choose to try and visit ALL the gardens, we have numbered them to create a logical route. If you purchased tickets, you may reference the maps in your booklet to plan your route.
The gardens are divided into two groups:
