    Did You Know?

    Native plants can tolerate sub-zero temperatures, summer heat, drought, and insect predation, all without ever needing to be watered, fertilized, and sprayed after establishment.

    Therefore, we use native plants exclusively and choose species that evolved in the same conditions your property exhibits. If you have a sunny and sandy area, we will use species that evolved in those conditions. If you have wet clay in the shade, then we will use species that evolved there. That guarantees your plants will thrive with minimal effort after they are established.
