Gardens by Gabriel From The Roots Up

Gardens by Gabriel, Inc is a collective of craftsmen, artists, and designers headed by owner and operator, Gabriel Frank. We maintain up-to-date Workers' Compensation and General Liability insurances to keep our customers protected.

Our two main crews are composed of 9 individuals: Victor Bernal, Mindy Renee, Zach Esparza, Jason Fitzsimmons, Laura Walters, Jordan Bender, Cade Broom, Salvador Rodriguez, and myself, Gabriel Frank, graduate of NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL HORTICULTURE. Keeping small teams allows us to focus on detail and quality, at every stage in the garden. When creating a more complex landscape, no matter the size, we incorporate into our team specialists in fine carpentry, concrete work, and masonry.

Alone or with an expanded crew, we excel at creating distinctive landscapes. We are honored to have received an Obispo Beautiful award and to have had multiple garden projects featured in the San Luis Tribune

Though we are based in Morro Bay, we like to think that our office is your garden, with our services stretching from Cayucos to Arroyo Grande. Proud to live and work on the Central Coast, we enjoy creating unique outdoor spaces that celebrate its beauty and diversity. To strengthen our central coast economy, we source materials from local plant growers, quarries, landscape suppliers, and artisans. Let us bring the very best the central coast has to offer to your landscape--Transform Your Personal Nature!


Marsha Houston, Los Osos, California
"Because of the efforts and creativity of Gabriel Frank of Gardens by Gabriel, my garden---just two years old---has been featured in the Garden Section of The Tribune of San Luis Obispo; has been certified an official Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation; and is constantly admired by passersby."

John, Grover Beach, California
"A wonderful team of professional, conscious, hardworking, reliable, courteous and friendly landscapers. Gabriel created a garden vision from a drafted plan converting un-landscaped dirt land to an elegant, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant haven that we can relax in, and admire and enjoy. Their fee was reasonable, we did have a small problem with irrigation that Gabriel personally came and rectified almost immediately. We have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending these creative 'wizards'!"

John Pratt, San Luis Obispo, California
"I rely on Gabriel for his talent, knowledge, good communication, and competitive prices. Gabriel’s a great guy who knows his stuff and does a wonderful job. My office is a challenging high traffic location, but my gardens look great and get lots of comments."

Jeff and Linda Olds, Jamba Juice, Arroyo Grande, California
"I met Gabriel at the Home Show in San Luis Obispo. What made him stand out in the deluge of 'stuff' were the plants he'd selected to bring as well as their arrangement. He has a great sense of style. From my initial contact with him at the Home Show through the completion of our project, Gabriel was professional, helpful, timely, and thorough. He and his team worked diligently through a tight timeline and the result was wonderful."

"Before Gabriel did his magic, our back yard--established in 1923 and pretty much neglected ever since--was a diamond in the rough (some established fruit trees and shrubs, seasonal weeds, parched earth in the summer)."
