what we do

we’re specialists in artful outdoor living

We do many things and all of them involve creating beautiful and healthful enhancements to life in South Puget Sound. We grow plants for use in landscape projects and for sale to home gardeners, we create beautiful and functional environments for artful outdoor living, and we make herbal products for a healthy body.

We think life is a grand adventure. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new. We like to engage all of our senses, as much and as often as possible. We invite you to join in the fun!
