About the The Sky Ranch Lodge Botanical Gardens

Opening in 1982 the award winning 6.5-acre property has continued to evolve and ultimately received its arboretum accreditation and botanical garden certification in 2020. Sitting above Sedona, AZ on airport mesa interspersed among the native Mesquite, Cypress and Junipers you will find a multitude of deciduous and evergreen trees, shrubs, flowers grasses and succulents. Gracing the property are massive Agave americana. These slow growing giants bloom only once in their lifetime and were planted over 30 years ago. We continue to add diversity to our collection while labeling and maintaining existing specimens. Sky Ranch Lodge is open to the public from 9am to 3pm daily and invites self -guided tours along our serene pathways.

Our garden aims to aesthetically display a diversity of plant life. We strive to create a sense of well-being while providing an opportunity to observe and admire nature.
