Who We Are


In the spring of 1971 we were ready to landscape our new home. Since we lived in South Minnesota, we thought we could use exotic tropical plants. Nearby was a nursery which grew traditional landscape plants, but they had a special area where they cultivated fantasy plants. They would only part with these special plants if you were a really good customer. Well, we were really good customers. Little by little we obtained this plants. It soon became evident that these plants would not do well as landscape foliage in South Minnesota.

Growing Plants For Over Thirty Years !

Studies have shown that taking a stroll around your home garden after a day’s hard work has some therapeutic value. As such, investing in a nice home garden can be a very good idea especially when you have a job that pushes you to the wall every day. Home gardens can be either large or small depending on the space that you have in the backyard or around your home. However, what is important is to ensure that your garden is always beautiful and welcoming so that it can give one a good reason to come home early and enjoy walking around it. Decorating your garden should therefore not be taken as a non-issue since it determines the kind of decor that it will have. There are several things that you can do to ensure that your garden has attained the beauty that it deserves. First, you can do it yourself but you need to ensure that you have the correct knowledge about how to go on about it.
