Daylilies, gardening, and old friends

Gardening is a profound metaphor to life. I have toiled in many different gardens through the years and each has taught me something new. Perhaps you have similar experiences when you become one with nature. For me, it is truly a gift. I hope to garden for many more years – it’s what I love, it’s my passion, it’s my old friend. ✿✿✿

The truth about calories & chemicals

We love organic gardening and never use chemicals. Our three main ingredients when installing a new landscape or garden include:

1. Right plant, right place

2. Hardwood Mulch

3. Organic compost

Keeping it simple (and natural) is always best. Save the money you would have spent on harmful chemicals and buy a new favorite plant (or two)!
