There’s no better time to enjoy the Rancho’s nationally recognized gardens which were planned and executed in the early decades of the 20th century under the careful guidance of owner Florence Green Bixby using outstanding landscape architects and plantsmen of the era, including the Olmsted Brothers, William Hertrich, Florence Yoch, Paul J. Howard, and Allen Chickering.

Your guide will be the Rancho’s own historic gardens expert, Janet Brown Becker. Ms. Becker has a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture with an emphasis in California garden design and history from UC Berkeley. She studied under the Rancho’s preeminent landscape architectural consultants, Russell Beatty and David Streatfield. Ms. Becker oversees the historic interpretation, curatorial documentation and horticultural integrity of the Rancho’s gardens.
