No space? Try a container garden

If space is limited, we can design and install a container garden. These have become very popular in the last few years as many people have limited space but love the idea of growing their own produce.

The right plants for your yard

Selecting the right plants, shrubs and trees for your yard is vital to creating the perfect outdoor space.

This means more than just deciding how much color you want to see throughout the year.

It’s also about choosing plants that need little or no maintenance so you can enjoy them with minimal care.

We’ll also give you tips for keeping them healthy or, if you’re busy, you may want to ask us about a landscape maintenance program so we can keep your yard weed free and looking good all year round.

Practical green ideas

  • Select plants that are water-wise
  • Capture rain water-use to water plants/garden
  • Use mulch-keeps moisture in the soil
  • Choose tools and equipment that reduce air/noise pollution
