Sybil B. Harrington Cactus and Succulent Galleries, Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix

Oasis Design Group did the walkways, earth sculpting, rockwork and overall planting design for the Cactus and Succulent Galleries. Oasis worked closely with the garden staff to meet its strict display criteria for cacti and succulents, and with nationally acclaimed southwest-based landscape architect Steve Martino, FASLA (Cactus City Design), who provided the architectural and lighting design for the shade structures. Oasis’ innovative and iconic planting design focused on the striking appeal of cactus and succulents grouped en masse, contrasting them in ways not typically done.
