TWIG is a professional landscape design and consult company specializing in sustainable/organic creative landscape and garden design for homes and small businesses. We can also come a spend an hour or two and you can pick our brains on landscaping ideas or issues.
When it comes to landscape, planning is everything. TWIG can help you develop an overall plan for your outdoor area for installation yourself or by your favorite landscaper.
Plans can be done all at once for instant beauty or in stages as time, money and energy permit. We can advise on low maintenance, low impact, environmentally safe ways to enhance your property for years to come.
It's almost July as I write this part of the newsletter, because I am hoping to take some much needed time for the 4th! This has been one funny season, plants are just taking their time to leaf out. One of TWIG's clients have been waiting patiently for their Tom Thumb Cotoneasters to leaf out, finally this week they are! The lobster compost might have had something to do with it. Rose of Sharons are always late, but the buds are taking forever to form this year. I don't think it will be the year of the Hydrangea either....funny how each year is different in the garden. Over the years, with all the gardening I do, I still see plants differently each year. Some years certain species thrive, some they don't. Sometimes perennials that I think have disappeared one year, seem to revive two years later. Ever evolving....
TWIG is hoping that next June we will be doing a TWIG Garden Tour of some of our clients! If you would like to be included on this tour, let me know. I have already contacted a few of you. What fun that will be...oh, and yes, it will be a lot of work, but you can show off your gardens!
As always, Kate and I are super busy, but never too busy to answer every email we receive. Please give us 24 hours to respond, and if we don't within that time, put another bug in our ear.
Congrats to Kate – She will be getting married to her partner Deana on July 14th. Laz and I wish her all the happiness in the world. She is taking a week for her honeymoon (I told her she needed to cancel it because we are just too busy, but she didn't go for that)! Congrats again, I know she is truly happy!
Make sure to look at the calendar and note the events listed below.
Yes, the hot weather is here.....didn't we all want that not so long ago? I personally don't like the hot weather, my perfect weather would be breezy and 70 degrees tops during the day with a soaking rain every three or four nights. Now that is gardening weather!
I also wish to thank all my clients for the well wishes for our newest member of the family, Laszlo Vonn Belanger. He is home from a long stay in the hospital and is fully recuperated and healthy!
Have a great July.......Paula
