Welcome to the 14th South Bay Water-Wise Garden Tour in 2024

We invite you to join us on our 14th annual South Bay Water-Wise Garden Tour where you will see beautiful, creative gardens and personally speak with the owners and landscapers.  Bring your camera!

"My daughter is planning a water wise garden for her home so bought us tickets to go on the annual tour of local gardens showcasing their plants and design ideas. We had a magical afternoon of inspiration, chatting with experts full of sage advice, received free cuttings and juicy homegrown lemons, and generally enjoyed our self guided tour enormously. You drive yourself around the mapped garden tour and spend as long as you want taking notes and photos of water wise plants to add to your own garden. Fantastic idea! Tickets are available online and everyone was friendly and welcoming, sharing their love of horticulture. You even get to explore Gardena Willows Wetland Preserve and taste the rangers homemade jams and teas using traditional native herbs. Would 100% recommend this tour if you are considering a water wise garden."
