Nearly 30 years the Gamble Garden Spring Tour has unlocked the gates to some of the most exclusive residential landscapes in Palo Alto, California, giving visitors a chance to experience what lies beyond the sidewalk. The tour benefits the Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, a horticultural nonprofit. Each year it showcases five exceptional gardens, providing home and garden enthusiasts with a bevy of inspiration for their own outdoor sanctuaries.
Like the tech industry that surrounds them, this year’s gardens were bursting with ideas. Though nothing quite beats the crunch of gravel underfoot or the perfume of citrus blooms warming in the sun, if you look at these photos long enough, you may just be able to see the grass blowing in the breeze.
