Barry Friesen, with his 40 years at Dawn Landscaping, set out to make his property a showcase to his work and experience and God's creation of plants. Out of this, Dawn Gardens was born. His experience includes head gardener at Kaiser Medical Center in Oakland, and horticulture instructor at Merritt College in Oakland. Barry received a degree in 1969 from UC Berkeley with a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture. His passion for plants and landscaping is evident in his beautiful work in creating Dawn Gardens.
Dawn Gardens in Grass Valley, California highlights beautiful garden plants that come alive in different ways for each season of the year. Learn more about gardening and how to plant a successful garden through Barry's world wide blog. You can visit Barry's Blog at: inthegardenaroundtheworld.blog
