Residential Gardens

Urban Plantations is Southern California’s leader in design, installation, and maintenance of edible gardens and orchards for homeowners. From the juiciest peach to the spiciest pepper, we take care to provide you the freshest, most delicious, organic produce possible.

Why Have an Edible Garden?

Today, people are rediscovering and championing local fruits and vegetables. While neighborhood farms and farmer’s markets have acted as a catalyst for this change, conscientious eaters can connect with food even further by installing an urban garden at home.

You can harvest your own ripe, organic produce and eliminate all the unknowns of supermarket vegetables: the exchange among countless hands, the unknown travel and refrigeration time, the carbon footprint due to transportation. With a garden in your yard or patio, you have the peace of mind knowing how and where it was grown.

Well-maintained home gardens are both sustainable and water conscious! Succession planting and seasonal transitions ensure you can harvest what you want when you’re ready, which limits food waste. Regenerative agriculture is the practice of cultivating sustainably nutritious soil using mulching, composting, biodiversity, no-till farming; this maximizes growing potential and sequesters greenhouse carbon. Edible gardens use, on average, 66% less water than a lawn and fully comply with all California watering regulations. Consider turning your grass into groceries!

An edible garden right outside your kitchen door gives you control, intimate knowledge of your food, and peace of mind. Additionally, an increasing number of studies are proving the mental and physical health benefits of owning your own garden. And, don’t forget just how gorgeous home gardens can be!
