Not only does a robust flower garden design add color and volume to your home’s landscaping, but it also reduces the need for pesticides and helps the local ecosystem. Chemicals used for weeds and turf can seep into the soil and be detrimental to the survival of pollinators like bees, butterflies and birds. We encourage our client’s to opt for a beautiful flower garden design in place of pesticides.
