Janet Moyer, the company's founder and president, has selected the following ten "must see" garden destinations that are her personal favorites and will please city residents and tourists alike:

1. Golden Gate Park -- Built in the 1870s over sand dunes reaching to the heart of San Francisco, this urban park offers over 1,000 acres of beautifully manicured and natural gardens.

2. San Francisco Botanical Garden -- Located in Golden Gate Park, it houses diverse plant collections and hosts educational programs dedicated to conservation.
