  • Sprinkle in some colorful annuals around the home.  For just a few dollars, this can really improve the appearance.  Use our potting bench to create the perfect color combination for your home.
  • Cut fresh edges around beds and along the driveway so there is a nice clean border.
  • Freshen up your mulch and be sure to make it is 2-3 inches thick. Ours is double ground and free of dyes and other chemicals which is a great selling point to prospective home buyers.
  • Replace dying bushes with healthy stock from our nursery, and get advice for the best ones based on sun exposure and placement around your home.
  • Consider a focal point in your yard for entertaining, like a natural stone patio around a fire circle. We can even create a design and do a digital walk through for you!
