Educated, Experienced & Excited About What We Do!

Learn / Ask The Landscape Professional

I have been trapped at home since the coronavirus and can't stand to see the state of my gardens anymore! Can you help bring back some beauty to my yard? Can you help me design a garden? Anne


Landscaping While Stuck At Home Hello Anne, Now is a great time to begin the process to design and install a garden, large or small.

The first step is to call me and I will set up a visit with you to go over your thoughts, preferences and space(s) involved for the project. If you aren't certain what you are looking for, that's not a problem; I can help guide you. We then make detailed site drawings and I develop the planting design. Plant choices that I recommend are based on 30+ years of experience in what works in this area and what doesn't. I have tried everything I plant and guarantee all of our plantings for a year. I know plants and specialize in native, low-maintenance landscapes. Go to our website below for hundreds of pictures of our work. Our planting season has already started and runs until late October every year.

We install gardens based on the order contracts are signed, so if you are thinking about doing a project, now is the time to let us know. If you wait until later this spring or summer, that's not a problem, you will just be farther down the list. In addition to landscape services, Sprigs & Twigs offers high quality stonework and carpentry services. See our Portfolios Page for some examples.
