We are a flexible and accommodating business that can work with
you in many ways. Our services range from designing intimate garden
spaces to managing the gardens of large estates.
Our core services are the complete design, creation,
and detailed maintenance of all types of gardens.
Whether you have a blank canvas or you have existing landscaping that needs updating, we will work with you to create a plan that will bring the garden of your dreams to life.
We create all types of gardens, including lush perennial gardens, mixed borders intertwined with annuals and perennials, informal cottage gardens, formal gardens, and even vegetable gardens.
Season-long garden maintenance is a cornerstone of what we do. We have the expertise and fine gardening skill required to maintain any type of garden to detailed perfection.
Pots, planters, urns, and windowboxes - we provide and create container gardens for decks, patios, porches, or any focal areas that need high impact interest. These mobile gardens provide wonderful opportunities to transform the look of any area from season to season.
If your garden has become neglected or needs a new
look, we can renovate it into the beautiful garden that you have
dreamed of and that you will be proud of. No need to feel overwhelmed,
we specialize in helping bring order to the most unruly of yards!
We are especially skilled in the artful pruning of
specialty shrubs, hedges, parterre, and small trees. We feel that
pruning is an essential skill required to maintain gardens at their
best. Proper pruning can reveal the hidden beauty of many plants
while at the same time promoting good health, encouraging vigor,
and improving flowering.
We can come to your house and guide you through a
project, identify or suggest plants, or diagnose plant problems.

Butterfly gardens, hummingbird gardens, formal gardens, vegetable gardens & edible landscapes, deer resistant gardens, cut flower gardens... these are all ideas that we can make a reality for you. The options are endless for what we can create.
We provide gardens, arrangements, and associated
décor for outdoor events such as weddings, parties, and reunions.
We also offer outdoor decoration for holidays and the changing seasons.
Finding sources for specific plants and garden objects
can be a challenge. We have a vast network of sources from which
we commonly obtain materials used in crafting our gardens. If you
desire specific plants, pots, accent pieces, or hardscaping items
we can assist in obtaining them for you.
