Bill Arman helps lead the way

As we continue to grow and develop our business we have made a conscious decision to "Be the Best that We Can Be in Our Industry".  
 
We know that we can't do this alone, so we have hired the services of Bill Arman, a nationally recognized landscape consultant from The Harvest Group to help us chart our course.

Bill Arman - Harvest Group
Bill worked for and helped grow one of the biggest landscape companies in the country, with over 30 years' experience in the industry. He's seen how the "big boys" do it and the importance of how well defined systems and processes can make a good landscape company become more efficient.

This includes recruiting, hiring, training and growing great people-while attaining quality assurance and most of all customer satisfaction.
  

 We are anticipating 2013 will be a great year for us!  We are looking forward to adding a new satellite yard, hiring additional people, and offering new services to our growing operation here in the North Bay. 

  
Enhance Your Properties' Curb Appeal 
It's Mulch Madness!
 

There is nothing that can have a greater impact to enhancing the appearance of a landscape than a fresh application of bark or mulch. There are many benefits to maintaining a sufficient layer of mulch but the greatest benefit is keeping your shrub beds looking fresh and clean.
 
Mulch breaks down and becomes less effective with age, causing many problems. Lack of mulch reduces weed control and increases moss build-up as well as increasing evaporative water loss during the summer. 

In addition, rebarking is the simplest way to make your property look fresher and brighter. 


We recommend rebarking every other year at the end of winter or early spring after we finish our pruning and pre-emergence application. There are many different types of mulch available. Let us help you choose the type that will be best for your property.

Tulips are Gorgeous! 
Holland Still Largest Producer 

European explorers were overwhelmed with the beauty of the tulips they found growing in Turkish gardens in the early 1500's.  They returned with stories of flowers that looked like upside-down turbans or tulibands, as the Turkish called them.  The name stuck and eventually was shortened to tulip.  Tulips made their way to Holland by the early 1600's.  



They became so popular that a tulip craze, called " Tulip mania," overtook the small country in 1634 and sent bulb prices soaring.  They were worth their weight in gold.  In fact, at the peak of the tulip mania, in February 1637, some single tulip bulbs sold for more than 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsman.  

Within a few years the market crashed and left much of the Dutch population penniless. Holland has since resumed its place in the bulb industry and is now the world's largest producer of tulip bulbs.
