“California Gardens North” is an easy-to-use mobile travel-guide app to exploring the finest publicly-accessible gardens from Monterey north to Humboldt County and east to the Sierra foothills.
Why this App?
Botanical gardens, college and corporate campuses, nurseries, private estates, public parks, resorts, wineries, and more showcase an extraordinary variety of plants that flourish across climate zones from the cool foggy coast to the Central Valley's blazing heat.
With descriptions of over 200 gardens illustrated with more than 1600 photos of plants, landscapes, structures, and sculpture in styles from Alpine to Zen, this app will help you to explore the places that best meet your horticultural interests and travel plans.
The app allows you to select from 25 garden styles (Asian, Botanical, Cottage, Rose, Winery, etc.) and sort them by 16 areas of the state. Each location includes a concise description, photos, interactive location maps, fees (most of them are free), opening hours, and links to related websites.
