Lasting Design/Natives/Pruning

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

Sustainability is the trend of today for all aspects of life, especially landscape and the environment. But when it comes to your home garden, sustainability has been a theme since the very beginning of garden history. Sustainability is no new word to us gardeners. In fact, we tend to our garden so that it will last. We use native plants to our region so that they can grow care free on their own in their natural environment. We make designs that will endure and are time proof and beautiful. These things are important to us if we intend to keep a garden. Cohesive design, natives, and proper pruning will encourage our garden to live on well past our own life span. The rest of the world “ooo’s” and “ah’s” at the notion of sustainability. We sit back, enjoy our garden, and ask “What took you so long?”
