Flora Grubb Gardens is a garden design shop in San Francisco’s Bayview District. Flora Grubb offers a palette of beautiful, durable plants chosen to thrive in Bay Area microclimates, as well as select garden furniture, containers, tools, artwork, ornaments, books, planting materials, interior plants, and other garden-related goods.
If you’d like your own garden to reflect what you love about visiting Flora Grubb Gardens, we can make it happen.
We will help transform your existing garden, deck, or interior plantscape, giving you what you want – like lush spaces for relaxing outside, high-style vertical gardens, or postcard gardens to view from your window. As experts in Bay Area microclimates, our designers will choose water-wise plants with the ability to thrive in your setting, whether it’s inside or out, sunny or shady, protected from or blasted by salty ocean winds.
In a region where people demand the best in food, art, architecture, and culture, Flora Grubb Gardens offers a point of view about garden design in the San Francisco Bay Area: that it should exploit, not thwart, our unusual mediterranean climate and city garden spaces; that it should take advantage of the area’s creative ferment; and that it should create practical beauty from living material.
