Explore the Extraordinary
Welcome to the home of Gardens by Gabriel, Inc, proud and passionate landscapers of San Luis Obispo County. Our mission is to transform your personal nature–into something personal, something peaceful, and something extraordinary.
What sets us apart?
We view the landscape as a living platform to build connections: It’s a conversation-starter with a new neighbor; a space to celebrate with loved ones; a sacred space to deepen your own practice of well-being. We want your landscape to be all that and more! From office team to install crew, we take pride in cultivating a strong team whose dedicated individuals bring their talents to your project. We appreciate the small-town feel of our county and love forging long-term relationships through our creative work.
Dig Into Your Options
Have you dreamt of a water feature bubbling as you sip your morning tea, or a drought-tolerant meadow for the kids to romp? Maybe you’ve been curious about fire features or what’s happening in the world of greywater or rainwater harvesting. Here’s where we talk garden features, and the choice between a shade sail or pergola, between cobble-edged flagstone and concrete pavers.

Plants for Mediterranean Landscapes
Plants are our vehicle for sustainability, and thus we believe that their hand-picked selection is what brings your space to life. At Gardens by Gabriel, Inc, harnessing the diversity and character of the Mediterranean plant palette is a passion and a specialty. We are plant collectors, propagators, seed savers, and above all, growers. With such a wide plant palette to work with, we are constantly trialing new selections and old favorites in different environments to distill the best of the best. We observe, take notes, and glean lessons from the land. Gardening is an ongoing experiment, and we strive to expand its borders with every plant in the earth.
