We are inviting our neighbors to attend a reception on our new Watershed Garden at the corner of Embarcadero and Waverley Streets. Gamble’s Garden Director will give a short presentation and answer questions about the new garden, its construction, and its benefits.

Please register if you would like to receive a reminder the day of the event.

Gamble Garden is proud to announce the installation of a new watershed garden. The Watershed Garden will convert the quarter-acre of high water use turf grass at the corner of Embarcadero Road and Waverley Street into a vibrant, water-efficient garden. The garden seeks to demonstrate the watershed approach to landscaping; a concept that believes every garden is part of a greater watershed and should rely on sustainable and resilient practices to preserve resources, support wildlife and keep our oceans clean by eliminating stormwater run-off.

The Watershed Garden elements will include colorful, climate-appropriate plantings, turf alternatives, a gurgling boulder fountain and curving pathways that will entice passersby to stop and experience all the beauty and tranquility that Gamble has to offer. The magnificent Canary Island palm tree will remain and serve as an inspiration for the textural, low maintenance plantings.
