The Garden Entrance
The front entrance was remodeled in 2005. The entry plaza ‘arid exotica’ was designed to showcase some of the many plants from around the world with emphasis on year-round attractiveness based on ‘waterwise’ plants. The entrance plaza features several water conservation themes, including a ‘smart’ irrigation controller, using drip and micro-emitters, based on a local weather station and pervious concrete. The Gift Shop, Retail Plant Nursery and Arid House all border the entrance.
