Landscaping, at its best, is a form of art, pleasing to look at, to touch, to smell, to hear, and to escape into. It is an art who’s true beauty can often be lost in words. With that in mind, we invite you to persue this portfolio of our work.

First, I want to thank everyone who helped support my Mom! Her sale was a great success, it was really nice to watch her do her thing. Second, she is going to have one more sale before Mother's Day. We keep getting calls and e-mails asking if she has any more material, so she is going set up shop one more time. It will be this Saturday 5/7/2016. 9am- 3pm at my shop again. 107 North 36th, Garden City. I hope to see you there!
