You Think It’s Landscape Magic?

You Think It’s Landscape Magic?

I don’t have much time to write this blog so I will do it as clean and neat as possible. Your property will not help itself.  Within 5 years of pruning your property once or even twice a year, your property will overgrow. You will have to do some hard pruning or even worse dig […]

A Room With A View; What do you see when you look out your windows?

A Room With A View; What do you see when you look out your windows?

Hey, good morning to everyone. It is crazy that for at least a week, I have had this idea in my head (looking out your windows , what do you see) and I have not taken the time to document it. I live here on Long Island in New York, and throughout the year, the […]

Overwhelming Japanese Maples

Overwhelming Japanese Maples

This may sound funny but WOW how large my Japanese Maple (Acer Palmatum) has become. We plant Japanese Maples with the intention most of the time that they will be relatively small and pretty and compliment our gardens. No Way. Do not be surprised after 5 years or more if your pretty petite Japanese Maple has […]

Leaves Clapping Hands

Leaves Clapping Hands

We look out into our gardens and we see so much and miss most of the subtitles. I have so many different types of trees, evergreens, woody ornamentals, perennials, bulbs and vines on my property there are always things that are missed. But this note to you today is not about what I missed but what […]
