Bay Maples will be participating in Silicon Valley Open Studios’ annual art event. This event brings together artists and art enthusiasts in the San Francisco Bay area. Visit our wood-working and welding shop, and tour our sawmill operation where we convert locally salvaged logs into beautiful furniture! We will be offering special sales of all products in our lumber yard and showroom. Bay Maples Wild California Gardens is located in San Jose at 1231 N.1st Street, right near downtown San Jose.

The event is organized by Silicon Valley Visual Arts, a leading arts organization in the SF Bay Area supporting the SF Bay Area community by bringing together the region’s artists and art enthusiasts, helping other non-profit organizations, and providing artist education programs.

Salvaging Logs into Slabs

Watch Alan take salvaged lumber and logs from local tree-cutting services and re-purpose these logs to create beautiful stunning furniture that can be used for years to come.

About Bay Maples

Bay MaplesAlan 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. At Bay Maples, we take pride in crafting truly unique designs, which you will find both aesthetically pleasing and cost effective.

“There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be.”
