Fostering, nurturing, cultivating…perhaps it is no coincidence that my very name, and our company’s, reflects what we do for you, our customer, and for our community. This past season as we cultivated your gardens, we were pleased to ‘nurture’ our community. We donated and planted a tree at Helen Keller Middle School in Easton as an expression of gratitude from the Samuel Staples Elementary School second grade class. As you may know, the middle school opened their hearts and their classrooms to these children when they were displaced from their own school. We also continued our enhancement of the Easton Community Center grounds this summer through our donation of additional plantings and maintenance upkeep.
If you haven’t been by one of our Adopt-A-Spots in Westport recently, do take notice. We really enjoy creating these “Spots” where people can appreciate nature and beauty as they drive through town.
I am sure you will agree that life is much better when Hydrangea are in full bloom. If you love Hydrangeo as much as I do, you will want to make sure that they are protected this winter. After much experience with various treatments, I’ve come to the conclusion that the best way to ensure blossoms on Hydrangea is to wrap them in burlap during the coldest seasons.
If you are unsure how to winterize you landscaping, please don’t hesitate to call me. After all, we are here to help ‘foster’ your landscape throughout the year.
