Walking through the garden grounds of Rancho La Puerta Spa and Resort is a stroll back in time. The raw simplicity, native vegetation and beauty of  the regions natural species are abundant throughout the property.  Even though non-native plants can be found popping up in different planters and hillsides, the majority of the gardens maintain the integrity of what grew there before it was settled by the founders of of Rancho La Puerta.

Every turn and cobble-stoned walkway offers a beautiful native surprise of sage brush, lavender and succulent cactus. Rustic and artistic stone sculptures give stunning visual interest in many hidden corners of the garden. Here’s a little visual inspiration from the gardens.
