Creative Gardening

Over the last 25 years in the Richmond area, we have developed a crew that executes all aspects of creating and preserving plantings, stonework, water features, and garden accents, so they are more spectacular with time.

Garden Design

Lawn and Garden Maintenance

We provide ongoing maintenance for your lawn or garden and flower beds and are evaluating such things as:

  • if a plant has outgrown its space, we try to move it where it will thrive
  • if perennials are too big or need a sunnier spot, we split them
  • the best time of year to prune back an overgrown evergreen
  • the optimal times to spray particularly invasive lawn weeds
  • which organic alternatives are available for specific tasks
  • preventative checking of your ornamental shrubs for harmful pests
  • analyzing soil samples for repeatedly difficult areas.
  • the best time of year to cut back top heavy roses for spectacular fall blooms.

We are fully insured, hold 4 different sets of Class A licenses, hold memberships to “green” organizations throughout the state, and are certified by the Virginia Society of Landscape Designers. More about our lawn & garden maintenance services . . .

The Purpose of Mulch

This time of year, pour company gets a lot of calls for not only weeding and dead heading, but also for mulching. Granted, it is a lovely time to spread mulch when perennials are dormant, but the real purpose of mulch, is to help retain water in the hotter temperatures.

Planting Wildflowers

In these times of being with family, it may be fun to plant wildflowers. This will let the kids get out some energy. Exhausted or elderly family members can watch and bask in lovely spring weather.

How to Avoid the Corona Virus this Spring?

Go outside in the garden! Pull a weed, plant a perennial, pick up sticks, cut back your ferns, sweep the patio, scrub down porch furniture, play with the dog. All this happiness will boost your immune system. You are easily more than 3 feet away from others. And germs don’t get trapped!

Fragrant Winter Shrubs

Try to find these Fragrant Winter Shrubs! Maybe it is because of the unpredictably warm and cold temperatures, but many of the most fragrant shrubs bloom in winter and are therefore blooming right now!

A Little Garden for the City Dweller

Here is a sweet little garden we did in Church Hill. It is reminiscent of the English gardens where 8lowers are planted in the front yard behind picket fences. This garden has a long blooming cycle with roses
