Welcome to the Sonoran Desert in beautiful Tucson, Arizona!

So many times when we tell our friends that we live in the desert, they conjure up images of us living amongst tumbleweeds and coyotes. Yes, that is definitely a part of our past, but today desert living has taken on a new look.

From lush desert landscapes filled with blooming cacti, desert flowers and the rich green of Mesquites, Palo Verdes and Ocotillo, Tucson is truly a green landscape, especially when you look ahead or to the mountains that surround us in all directions.

Homeowners have transformed their desert landscapes into outdoor living spaces that are a true extension of their indoors, And, why not! Our weather in Tucson allows us to be outdoors all year. In the Spring, Summer and Fall, we can enjoy our swimming pools, shaded and covered outdoor dining areas and take in unparalleled sunset. In the winter, we can put on a warm sweater and sit aside a Kiva fireplace or any one of many style of outdoor fire pits.

What more needs to be said? The desert can be warm, inviting and so relaxing. Let your mind create, your desert oasis. Better yet, be in touch with Sonoran Gardens to set a time to meet with one of our highly trained landscape designers. We'll take you where you never thought possible!



Designed by: Landscape Design West – Shelly Abbott

Set up against majestic Pusch Ridge the tiered walls are reminiscent of the surrounding mountain views. Colorful native landscaping is used throughout, accented by low voltage lighting. The pool, spa, and water fall juxtapose the surrounding dry climate and offer an oasis in this stunning desert escape.



Originally Designed by: S/G Designs – Sven Gunn

Updated Design by: Desert Sky Landscapes – Roberta Braegelmann

By incorporating mature Mesquite trees, unique native plantings, and custom ornamental iron Roberta created a welcoming entrance into the side courtyard. The theme is carried throughout to the backyard. Here a large flagstone outdoor living space, complete with fireplace and built in barbecue leads down to another native landscape garden supported by extensive riprap work.

The amazing and distinctive application of Belgard pavers create the base of this Ventana Canyon sanctuary. The custom fireplace and ornamental iron features make this property one of a kind. Through the use of annual flowers, palms, and native desert plantings one may question; "Am I in Tucson anymore"?

The Garden Conservancy

Are you interested in seeing how desert living can come alive at your home?

Join Sonoran Gardens for The Garden Conservancy Tucson Area Open Days on Saturday, October 5, from 10am to 4pm. Simply visit for all of the details. The first two gardens 'A Desert Gem' and 'The Sublime Desert Connection' were designed by our very own Shelly Ann Abbott and were constructed by the Sonoran Gardens' team of professional landscapers.

What is the Open Days Program?

The Open Days Program is essentially a series of private garden tours around the country, including Tucson, that begins in early spring and continues through the fall of each year. Each summer, gardeners are invited by local Regional Representatives to become Garden Hosts and agree to open their garden during a scheduled Open Day (or several days) in their area. The Open Days are self-guided tours. Visitors decide which garden they want to visit and in what order. Come celebrate the accomplished work of your local designers and landscapers!
