We design landscapes that are both beautiful and grow delicious, fresh foods all season long. Growing your own food helps us all have healthier and more abundant living spaces.
We specialize in a variety of plants and plantings:
- trees, hedges and shrubs
- annual and perennial flowers
- fruits and vegetables
- vines and grasses
We believe in diverse plantings that bring colorful flowers in the spring, bright green leaves and fruit in the summer, rich autumnal tones in the fall, and distinctive branches and bark in the winter. Vines and vertical growing systems can even provide growing spaces on fences and walls which were previously vacant.
Please contact us if you would like us to give you a free estimate for any landscaping work you are planning to do. We would love to help you make your yard a fruitful place for you to enjoy.
Hardscaping and Patios
We also design and build patios for community gatherings and relaxation at your home. There are a variety of materials which can be used, but we mostly recommend flagstone since it is a locally available material that is long lasting, beautiful and porous. We would be happy to talk to you about the many options available!
Installing an irrigation system makes watering your yard efficient and easy to manage. For a smaller garden, we can run irrigation directly from the nearest hose faucet in your yard. For larger gardens, we may need to run a conventional irrigation line to bring enough water to the plants. From xeric to moderate to heavy watering areas, we can customize an irrigation system for you so that every plant receives the amount of water it needs to thrive.
Wherever possible, we prefer to use landscaping techniques that make the best use of materials, are the most conservation-friendly, and are easily sustainable. For example, if you have a grassy area that you are hoping to make into a garden, there are two main ways that we achieve this. The first is that we will use the sod we take out to make berms which hold water in and direct it to garden beds. The second is to use the grass in the garden bed. For this, we flip the sod over, cover with a thick layer of carbon rich substance such as leaves, unbleached paper or cardboard. Then we put a generous layer of planters mix and dirt over this. That grass will decompose with the carbon-rich material over it and create a well draining, rich soil underneath the planters mix and dirt. This is one of the fastest ways to create a thick layer of great soil. It is also sometimes referred to as “lasagna” gardening.
