We plant spring and fall bulbs, annuals, flowering perennials, shrubs and trees. As well as a variety of borders, ground covers, ornamental grasses, etc.
We do all the work..!
We will do the buying of the plants, based on your specific selection of plant materials.
You just give us a list with the plants you want us to get and the plant's lay out. We will proceed to purchase the plants, bring them in to your place and then do the planting.
Do you want to do the buying yourself?
Then you can get to the store, buy the plants yourself, get them home. We can do all the planting for you.
As you will buy the materials yourself, we will adjust our rates to reflect only the site preparation and planting.
Do you need help doing the buying and getting the materials home?
We offer this service because some customers don't want to miss out on the fun of seeing what's available at the nursery and doing the choosing of the plant materials by themselves. However, oftentimes they need help with the handling of the plants and soil and they need a truck to take the materials home.
Shop for the plant materials yourself and we will help you with the handling and deliver them to your place.
You can either do the planting yourself or you can have us do the planting.
Rate: $300.00 per an estimated time of up to 4 hrs. This service includes one service person with a truck, to assist you in handling the materials, taking the materials to your place, bringing the materials down and placing them to the flower beds near by where they will be planted.
*This rate does not include planting. We can do the planting for you if requested.
Either way... we will be happy to do work for you around your flower beds...Just let us know you need our help..!
WHAT WE DO
Using annuals, bulbs and flowering perennials for color
We rake and prepare your flower beds. If necessary we reduce or trim the existing flower beds vegetation to create areas where we can plant. And we do the planting, adding some top soil and fertilizer as we plant to have optimum plant development.
We plant according to what you have in mind for your flower beds. We either do a complete coverage of the flower beds areas or we can do only a partial coverage, creating specific colorful areas.
We can also use annuals, bulbs or perennials to just create a colorful border along your flower beds.
We will use a ground cover type of plant if you wish to have an area of your yard covered with a low maintenance plant material, that will look presentable and deter weeds from taking over.
We could use Pachysandra, Lily of the valley, or Vinca, etc. or an interesting combination of them. If you want to have volume we can use Bishop's Gout Weed (Aegopodium podagraria variegatum), etc.
Using shrubs for greenery and fall colors
In general, we use shrubs and trees for greenery and fall colors, positioned towards the background, in strategic arrangements, or to create a hedge.
We use annuals for broad area coverage with color and also to create borders, and we use flowering perennials and bulbs as color accent spots in strategic positions and to ad volume and height.
The possibilities are endless..!
