Sierra Rock Garden Society

We are a group of gardeners dedicated to exploring the art and science of rock gardening in the Sierra Foothills, as well as learning about new plants.


What is a rock garden?

Rock gardens are gardens composed of plants and flowers that grow well among rocks. They are often based on low growing and compact flowering perennials and bulbs. Rock gardens can be built on large slopes or tiny garden beds. They include open gardens, raised beds, woodland gardens, bog gardens and container gardens. Rock gardening is a great way to garden in the foothills.

Learn from fellow gardeners!

Gardening in our climate is always different from gardening elsewhere in the country, and membership in SRGS gives you the benefit of learning from fellow gardeners that have been gardening in the same climate. What works for the rest of the country doesn’t always work here!
