Spring Clean-up

Early march, star magnolia beginning to bloom. We apply herbicides, fertilizers, edge beds before mulch installation.

Winter

I create natural landscapes for every season including winter. This looks like any woods in nature.

Winter

20 years ago this was a lawn with only 3 trees. I have enjoyed creating this half acre woods planting thousands of hostas, while creating fallen limbs, trees & pathways. Harmony.

This granite boulder is a terrific contrast to all these hostas. My cat Charlie loves to sit on top of this rock where she is queen of the jungle.

Summer time

18 years ago this was all sunshine & lawn. Today this is one of my favorite photos. Trees & hostas all grown at my nursery. Tranquility & peace with harmony.

Here we can see granite boulder, bird feeder along with a bird bath. I have created a sanctuary where hundreds of birds can live in the trees. My cat Charlie also sits 7 watches the birds.

Summer time

I thank God for my gift to dream, to see, to design & create to plant what I can only describe as Spectacular. I give god all the glory! Praise be to God.

My dad & grandfather both taught me the value of hard work, and that it is o.k. to get your hands dirty. Now it is my turn to pass this on to my grandson dillon.

Completed

I have developed everything you see in this picture. 18 yrs. ago this wall all lawn with no trees. I have the ability to see finished results before the landscape ever begins.

OUR PHILOSOPHY: Landscaping takes a special kind of love. Love that expresses itself in a rejoicing way. An unspoken but unmistakable message of peace like a sanctuary of priceless treasure. The hours spent are repaid in countless oments of tranquility that needs no words.
