VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+

It’s more than our weather. We bask in LA’s wild spaces and their perpetual evolution.

Already, we see Yucca Whipplei sprouting in the area burned by the La Tuna fire. While charred slopes break our hearts a bit, they also make a dramatic backdrop for the beautiful fire-fighting natives in the Sunland Welcome Garden.

Old and new again, there is so much breathtaking beauty in the world. We hope you are out there, reveling in it.

Sincerely,
Cassy and Kirk

Sustain Your Garden

Great growth years are high fire danger years. At the risk of sounding like your mother… have you cleared weeds? Eliminated excess or dry foliage?

We know. We don’t need to tell you. You have our Autumn Maintenance Checklist!
