Recycled fiber pots

Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today. Think about that.

In an effort to reduce plastic waste we use pulp fiber planters made from recycled paper.
When the season is over remove and recycle the metal label and/or hanging basket hanger and the rest of the planter can be composted.
Did you know that one ton of recycled waste paper saves the equivalent of between 15 and 17 mature trees? (Source EPA)

Organic Soil ingredients

Our soil mix is rich in organic matter and microbes, not pesticides and chemicals.

It all starts with GREAT soil. Because healthy plants growing in great soil are more resistant to pest problems.
Which is why we use the best, quality ingredients and OMRI certified organic fertilizer in our soil mix.
Better for the environment, better for your plants.

Sustainable Landscapes

We design landscapes with sustainability in mind.

By selecting plants most suitable to the site and arranging them in a way that requires less fertilizer
and herbicide we reduce the amount of resources that are required to maintain the landscape.
The less resources required the less of an impact that landscape has on the environment.... and less work for you!
