Treating Rainwater as a Resource

Located at the corner of Embarcadero Road and Waverley Street, Gamble's Watershed Garden is a vibrant, water-efficient garden that demonstrates the watershed approach to landscaping. The watershed approach treats each garden as part of a greater watershed, relying on sustainable and resilient practices to preserve resources, support wildlife and keep our oceans clean by eliminating stormwater run-off.

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