We like to forgo cutting back the perennials in the Fall. By doing this, we are not only leaving a natural food source for the birds, but we are creating habitat for our local bees and insects to over winter in. Some of our native bees tuck themselves away under tree bark, inside hollow stems, an...

Trey consulted on my yard projects, really listened to what I was trying to create, suggested a bunch of great ideas, put a plan in place, and used all the right plants. He's easy to work with, friendly, knows the finer details about plants, and their practical applications. I highly recommend his work!

The Plant Geek is the best! Trey worked with me to create a great landscape that was manageable and appropriate for the home and yard. He worked quickly and gave me exactly what I wanted, even exceeded my expectations. Such a nice guy! He is now my go-to for all things garden/landscape!!!

I recommend Trey without reservation. I had an invasive “monster “vine that was threatening to dismantle my fence when he came to assess the problem and suggest a plan of action. I have been thrilled with the results of using native plants, organic compost and thoughtful consideration of wildlife habitats.Trey has come up with creative suggestions and alternatives that I would not have thought of , in addition to making thoughtful use of existing plants and architecture. I love my garden space as much or more than any interior space and appreciate having someone so knowledgeable to ask for guidance along the way. He is a conscientious hardworking professional ,whom I highly recommend.
