Cornerstone Gardens Sonoma, California




Cornerstone Gardens is a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. Located in Sonoma, California it is a collection of 20 gardens each designed by a different landscape designer. As with anything like this there were things that I loved and elements that I didn’t really care for. In general I like California gardening, it just needs a little more water. There is a nursery and Art Gallery attached to the gardens. It is kind of in the middle of nowhere but worth the trip. We found it as we were driving around wine tasting.

I must admit that just the idea of having so many designs in one place is a good one. Especially if you were shopping for design services. I believe that this is the first project like this in the United States.

What do you mean when you say "the idea of having so many designs in one place"? What idea is that exactly?

I like your blog. What is your background?

I love Cornerstone! That's a beautiful picture. Where is it at Cornerstone?

Ms. Molly, Cornerstone called for submissions about four years ago and most of the top landscape designers in the world submitted designs. Then they went out and built them in a wild "Festival of Gardens." It's incredible.

As I remember this was down at the bottom of a terraced hill of Liropee. It is a great place. Look for some more pictures of Cornerstone as my sister just moved to Sonoma. I will getting out there soon.
