Conventional landscapes often work against nature by utilizing landscape chemicals. It's possible to create a great–looking landscape that's healthier for you, your family, your pets and the environment and can save you time and money without using toxic pesticides or quick-release fertilizer. Making informed plant choices and understanding how trees grow is a great place to begin!
Join us to get to know some tough landscape plants and perhaps gain a new appreciation for trees!
