About

Alan Hackler



Alan Hackler created Bay Maples Wild California Gardens to address the divide between California’s ongoing water needs and the human desire to live in harmony with a well-maintained and beautiful landscape. Bay Maples creates low-impact, water-saving gardens through the use of native plants, recycled or repurposed materials, and irrigation strategies involving greywater and rainwater catchment.
