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.
Fall clean ups are approaching! We just never know when they will start, but we are sure hoping they finish up by the end of the first week in November. I am looking forward to spending some time with my Laszlo in Maine, baking cookies for Christmas and reading a few books that are just sitting on my nightstand waiting to be cracked open.
Common Ground Fair was amazing. I highly recommend going if you can. We were fortunate to be able to listen to Ben Falk, the key note speaker. His book is our recommendation for this month. To see so many people who care for the earth, together was enlightening. We met some wonderful people and learned a whole lot of great information.
I also want to say how fortunate we are to have Kate on board. She has been a tremendous help all season long. I am currently unable to do labor due to some medical issues (nothing serious). Fall cleanups will be done by Kate and Bob (new hire). I hope you all had a chance to meet Kate.
A pruning workshop is in the works for March for both TWIG Maine and TWIG NH. We are currently looking for someone who is willing to open their home for a pruning workshop and then allow us to prune their landscape. Must have plenty of woody plants including apple trees. Let me know if this is something you would like to participate in! This is a great opportunity to get your landscape pruned for free!
The TWIG Garden Tour in NH next year will be scheduled for July 11th. Participants and attendees, mark your calendars!
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and most important....RETHINK. Going organic in your garden is not more expensive. We use methods that encourage less products, more biological methods, and ways to keep nature in balance. Can't convince you? Schedule a consultation. We do gardening differently, we garden the Way It Grows.
And as always....please send along your garden pictures or post them to our face book page. When you have questions, post them on FB so all can see. We will try to answer them promptly.
Have a wonder fall and Happy Halloween!
