Grow Native, Not Wild

Maybe you aren’t sure where to begin, or you’ve decided to get rid of some lawn, or you have an idea in mind and need a little help.  

Daniel Cunningham walks you through landscape design basics, including native plant selection, site preparation, installing hardscapes, soil preparation, and best practices for caring for your garden.   


Landscape CPR

Ready to breathe new life into your landscape? Learn how to address poor soil conditions, bare spots on the lawn, an area where nothing will grow, weed, insect and disease infestations, and slow draining water. 

These are symptoms of a bigger issue and Dr. Bowling will help diagnose common landscape issues and prescribe tips on how to revive your landscape.   


Constructing a Raised Bed

Raised beds are perfect for a variety of plants, vegetables, flowers and herbs. Avoid poor soil, pipes underground, and reduce your need to weed.   

Daniel Cunningham provides simple guidelines for success. He reviews planning before building, what materials to use, soil selection, and how to find the right plants for your new garden.
