This year’s SDHS Garden Tour will highlight gardens in and around Encinitas, an area rich in horticultural history. Not only has the region been a giant in the commercial flower and plant trade, but even the city’s name has a link to horticulture: Encinitas means “little oaks” in Spanish.

The gardens on this self-guided tour will feature both fully mature as well as newly designed spaces, all suited to our Southern California climate. Several of the gardens are within large estates with multiple outdoor rooms, and some of the yards have raised beds and fruit trees, meadow-like areas, and unique plant cultivars. There will be eight or more gardens on the tour. 

In keeping with past tours, we will also feature local artisans selling their hand-crafted garden art. Watch artists as they paint in the gardens, and meet SDHS community partners.

If you have or know of potential candidate garden in the Encinitas area, please email the
