Kensington, California--Blake Garden

Blake Garden's highlights include specimen plantings, bold en masse plantings, Asian sculpture, forested paths and a rustic yet elegant landscape architecture.  It further exhibits the diverse plant palette available to Pacific Northwest gardeners.  It is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished using simple materials, construction techniques, garden designs and plants.  Blake Garden is a charming and timeless meditative garden.  Trail Map
