Status: Open to the public

The UC Master Gardeners of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties, in partnership with the City of San Carlos and the non-profit organization San Carlos Together, welcome you to our container garden. 

Each of the twenty-five large planting containers located on three blocks of Laurel Street in downtown San Carlos contains a variety of plants based on a theme, such as California natives, pollinators, succulents, and drought-tolerant plants. We hope you are inspired to include some of these plants in your home garden.
