Pruning Season

Pruning is crucial to the health of our woody plants: Shrubs, bushes, trees. It is important that pruning isContinue reading “Pruning Season”

The New Truck

They had a backyard that had pretty much only grass and a few hostas. They asked us to add perennials and bushes around theContinue reading “Stone Edging”

Wildflowers and Grasses
