Nancy’s Office Window Planter Box

Here’s the lovely planting for early fall 2016.  Nancy wondered why I was bothering to make a movie of it, but this topic embodies three of my favorite things; Nancy, Nancy’s plants and Nancy’s office.

Please enjoy the slideshow starring Daphne, Chrysanthemum, Wire Vine, Heuchera and Spirea.
























Basalt Rock Retaining Wall

This video is an excellent example of our ability to build great landscape features for our customers even when their yard is difficult to access.  In this example, the customer had a steep slope in their backyard- the access was through a narrow gate and they live on a busy street.  None of this obstacles prevented us from installing a terraced retaining wall with 20 tons of 1-man basalt rocks.  Their yard went from an unnavigable cliff of brambles and blackberry vines to a lovely set of terraces with a patio area and planting beds.


Enjoy the drama:



Cedar Privacy Fence with Heirloom Artifact

Our customer had a precious family heirloom she wanted to have featured in the gate we built for her project.  Or, maybe the antique-esque thing will someday become an heirloom.  Or maybe the thing was part of a hair loom.  Maybe I need to get my hearing checked.  Anyway, here’s a another mini-doccumentary for the short-attention-span theater:




An Audience for Planting

These cute kids were assembled at the edge of the neighbor’s lawn with popsicles in hand by the neighbor mom who was glad to have the kids outside and entertained for the few moments while they watched us plant today’s garden.  I asked the mom for permission to publish the video I was determined to make due to the adorable scene.


Enjoy the mini spectacle:


Organic Landscaping: Weeds

When your neighbor is outside tending to his dandelion patch do you see the gallon size bottle of Roundup next to where he’s working, or does he keep it in the garage?


Here’s another example of a way to address the unwanted plants in your natural environment without poisoning the watershed with “safe” chemical defoliants.  Warning!  May cause minor blisters and dirty clothing.
