The Seattle area is host to many beautiful gardens and arboretums. When your visitors come to town this summer, we thought it would be nice to have a list of gardens for them to see. We have visited or read about each of these botanical gardens and highly recommend each one.


The map below shows each garden listed, along with a brief description, location, and cost. You might want to save the map to your Google Maps for future reference.

Visit each of these botanical gardens in the Seattle area and take along your camera. If you see a plant that you want to include in your garden, we can schedule a consultation and let you know where in your landscape the plant would grow and look the best.

If you have found a garden gem in the Seattle area or around the Pacific Northwest, be sure to leave a comment and let our viewers know where they can go to enjoy more beautiful gardens, view interesting plants, and gather new landscaping ideas.
