Garden and Lawn Care
for the Upper Valley
Lawns now cover 2% of land area of the Continental U.S. That is more than any irrigated crop.
Each gas-powered lawn mower produces as much air pollution as 43 new cars driven 12,000 miles per year! -EPA
"ECOLOGICAL LANDSCAPING is a method of designing, building, and maintaining landscapes that considers the ecology of a site and creates gardens that enhance the surrounding environment for the benefit of humans and all other life in the ecosystem." -ELA
OUR GARDEN TENETS:
1. Native plants: beckon birds and pollinators to your backyard by growing the plants they need for food and habitat
2. Right plant, right place: Mindful, informed designs that won't need additional watering, fertilizer, or pesticides
3. Lush, dense plantings: we mimic natural ecosystems to maximize niches and reduce the need for importing mulch
4. Leave the Leaves: garden management techniques to support soil health and ecosystem services
