It's easy to see why we landscape our homes - the benefits are numerous:
  • To complement & add beauty
  • Provide functionality & outdoor living spaces
  • Enjoyment & relaxation
  • Solve a site problem
  • Add value

Too often, however, the design process and care of the landscape is oversimplified.
  Success with your landscape involves equal consideration for design, horticulture, engineering and the unique conditions of the site.

If plants are selected without considering their cultural requirements and future growth, the landscape is destined to on-going problems and expense.  Even after careful design & installation, continued success relies upon the appropriate care.




"Research has proven that, in addition to the plant selection process, site quality and proper care are absolutely crucial in sustaining healthy plants."
Ann R. Leslie, Ph.D.
Integrated Pest Management for Turf and Ornamentals


It is time for those of us in the industry to become more proactive in educating homeowners about how plants grow and what they will and will not tolerate.
