The Garden at El Zaguan

Average Reviews



At the end of 2012, the Santa Fe Master Gardeners, in collaboration with the Historic Santa Fe Foundation, began restoring the garden while practicing community-based gardening. After the initial assessment (existing planting, soil properties, water utilization, etc.), a garden design and work plan was developed to address this established garden need and improvement. This year’s ninth year, the project proposes pruning, IV irrigation, plant migration to avoid congestion, new plant additions, hard caps and other garden improvements.

Project goals

To create a rich garden with a water-friendly budget while staying true to the historical origin of the garden.
