BulbsMy wife Sara and I spent last Friday at the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association’s trade show. There were many awesome things to take away from our trip. Listed below are 5 that should get your wheels turning.

  • Antique planting containers: Old things are in. We all know this. Unfortunately relics of the past are not cheap. Terra Products in Lakeville had some very nice specimens at a great price. If you are in need of a top notch tour guide when looking for containers ask for Dan (only for current clients).
  • Ash Tree Replacements: Now found in Dakota County, the Emerald Ash Borer is going to wipe out all Ash trees in the near future. If you are serious about shading your house….this is a good time to get future trees planted in and around your current Ash.
  • Vegetable/Herb Gardens: We are creating raised beds, traditional gardens and container gardens in exponential numbers. The future is in growing your own food and being self-sustainable. We have a very knowledgeable staff that can get your inner-culinary chef going in the right direction.
  • New Patio Products: Plank pavers are the hot topic right now inside and out. Check out Rinn Padio from Anchor or Silver Creek’s Barn Plank. If you would like to visit one of our many job sites with these products just give us a call to arrange a site visit.

See you in the Sun!
