Bringing a bit of color to an already beautiful place


When we were first called out to this estate, the main thing the owner wanted was to solve some erosion and run-off problems from their pastures.  Not only did we capture storm water runoff in a series of rain gardens, we made the entire residence shine throughout the year.



A small garden brings in the butterflies and increases neighborhood biodiversity


It's always amazing to us how much beauty can be brought to a small space when you think outside the box.  This little space went from mundane to spectacular in a matter of moments with the help of our design team.
