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 March and WOW, it has been a long hard winter. In Eastport we have several feet on the ground. We have received 130" in one month here. I know, so many of you think we are nuts for calling Eastport our home. But really, this is not normal. Eastport has less snow than Weare NH on average. I think we are all looking forward to some nice sunny spring weather. And I guarantee that Spring will come.
We are excited that we currently have seven gardens on TWIG's Garden Tour on July 11th. Tickets will be $20 per person or $15/person with a group of four or more. Also, there will be two tickets available to ride in the TWIG truck to each garden. Each garden can be toured on your own or TWIG will be there at scheduled times to give you a guided tour. These will be $50 each and available first come first serve. Next newsletter will outline more details. mail me for these tickets at twigthewayitgrows.com. What a great gift for someone (hint hint, Mother's Day). Also, all proceeds will be donated to the NOFA Organic Land Care Program to promote organic gardening and professionalism throughout the country.
To all of our clients - contracts have gone out via email. Please let us know if you did not receive it or if you would like a paper copy mailed to you. Due to everyone wanting their yard done in May, the sooner the contract is received, the sooner you are scheduled. Also, we are scheduled for pruning from March 14th through the 27th. We sure hope the snow is gone! Remember, proper pruning is good for your trees health and beauty!
As usual, this winter was too short for me, but I did get some great reading in. I watch a few good documentaries as well and the more I read and watch, the more convinced we need to be more aware of the environment.
As TWIG does more and more sustainable garden designs, our main goal is to teach our clients that there are methods that are kind to the environment and uses our precious natural resources wisely. There is no need to turn on a pump to water gardens, there is no need to fertilize with products made by big chemical producers, there is no need to spray our orchards, landscapes, and yards with dangerous pesticides. TWIG can help you achieve a beautiful landscape sustainably.....let us show you.
Well, as another season approaches, I truly believe the organic buzz is getting louder! I love what I do and I am happy to be contributing to healthier environments for my grandchildren and future generations, even though it is in very little bits in the scheme of things. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
