Sustainable Descanso

Descanso Gardens Master Plan

The beautiful 150-acre Descanso Gardens attract hundreds of thousands of visitors—and now they are near self-sufficient for water and energy use. For a garden as beautiful as Descanso, demonstrating sustainability is a worthy vision. Achieving that required a Master Plan with a thorough analysis of all potential methods and technologies and an assessment of their application to specific sites and operations, costs and value to the garden.
