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 August and what a great season for new clients interested in going organic with their landscapes, including their lawn. Lots of people interested in integrating vegetables, beneficial plants, natives...Seems to be the trend we are headed in. TWIG is currently working on several biodiverse, integrated, non toxic designs for both public and private spaces... Thanks to John's Landscaping and Green Monster Landscaping for helping with the quotes. TWIG's abilities to do hardscapes is limited so we hire only NHCLP's. Both John and Mark fit that bill!
So, I am in Maine and then New Hampshire, and then Maine, then.....yes, thanks to Kate I have been able to keep up with the two businesses. She has done a tremendous job learning very quickly. Oh and I think I should thank my hubby and David Hoekstra, for they have done some phenomenal work up in Perry Maine. Busted butt!
Also, TWIG has been working on the Legacy Park design in Eastport Maine which will be next to the Commons. We had our first meeting and hope to have another in September to get the ball rolling for installation in the fall of 2015. If you are a local artist or craftsman in the area, we would like to know if you would like to incorporate a piece your work into the garden. A lot of ideas came up and if you would like more information, please contact TWIG or Meg McGarvey at the Commons.
Some new information on October classes in both Concord and Merrimack NH included below, as well as TWIG - Putting Your Gardens to Bed, Lubec Public Library - Lubec Maine this coming Saturday, August 23rd. Also, tree walks are being offered at the Salmon Festival....see below for more information. Looking forward to it!
Although the rain has been a blessing, remember, just because it rained plenty in July, August can be dry. Kate talks about watering below, but as always, if you are a TWIG client, look for that reminder email we send. August and September is a very important time for your plants. Slowing down to go into dormancy and lack of water can be detrimental. If you would like more information on alternative watering methods tailored to your landscape, TWIG can come and take a look. Hate those hoses, don't want to turn on the pump, you don't have to!
We have five clients on our TWIG Garden Tour for next year. Thanks for all the inquiries. We will be posting more information as time goes on. If you need your plants put to bed for the winter, contact us. If you are a current client, no worries, you're on our list.
Enjoy the rest of the summer....Fall is my favorite season, and plants with fall color is a must in your landscape!
