VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

A big, heartfelt thank you to everyone for all the notes of support that followed the Los Angeles Times article. In going out of your way to thank us for our dedication to sustainability, you’ve refueled our fire.

We are often in awe of all the wonderful work that goes on in this town.  We are confident that, working hand in hand with you and our non-profit partners, 2015 and the years to come will be ever more beautiful.

Sincerely,

Cassy and Kirk Aoyagi

WHAT TO EXPECT+

FormLA teams will keep your gardens celebration-ready this holiday season.  We will:

Harvest winter veggies like fennel and parsnips

Keep gardens structured and thriving:

  • Prune conifers and other deciduous trees and deep-feeding citrus trees
  • Continue to cut back thriving natives and native grasses as they experience growth spurts
  • Dividing grasses
  • Planting, mulching, planting and mulching!

Protect homes by maintaining outdoor water systems:

  • Turn off irrigation controllers, thanks to rain!
  • Cleaning gutters and checking waterways in preparation for rain
