Creating art and spreading joy with flowers

Carmel Gardens is a florist in idyllic Carmel Valley delivering artful flower arrangements to homes and businesses in the greater Carmel area, Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove, Monterey and beyond. We also create floral magic for weddings and events of all sorts.

It's our experience that nothing brings an instant smile to someone's face like the gift of flowers. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, planning a wedding, or sending support during a difficult time, we are so grateful to provide memorable florals for life's meaningful moments.


Artistry and sustainability are at the heart of everything we do

Our Commitment to Sustainability

Did you know that 82% of the so-called "fresh" flowers used in the U.S. floral industry are flown and trucked here from other countries? Or that floral foam, the most commonly used design mechanic, never fully breaks down and contains carcinogens such as carbon black and formaldehyde?

At Carmel Gardens, we are wholly dedicated to sustainable floristry. For us, that means the institution of design and business practices that reflect our commitment to our community, our planet and our children.


    Rather than importing from overseas, we source our flowers daily from the phenomenal farms right here in Monterey and Santa Cruz Counties. Not only are we minimizing our footprint and supporting local agriculture, we are providing the absolute freshest and longest-lasting flowers available to our customers.


    By using only seasonal flowers in our designs, we support our local growers year round and promote sustainable farming methods. More so, it allows us to continually deliver fresh and exciting designs to our customers, arrangements that reflect the remarkable beauty of nature and celebrate of the uniqueness of each season.


    Beyond banishing floral foam from our studio, we use only recyclable and compostable materials for our designs and packaging. All of our studio waste is thoughtfully recycled or used for compost. And through our Vase Recycling Program, each vase returned to us is rewarded with a $5 credit towards any future purchase.
