1/2 Hr. Landscape Design, $25/Tree of Life Nursery/Sat. Oct. & Nov.Post: Cindy Ferry
I got this in and thought I'd share it. I thought the $25 fee for a 1/2 hr. design plan was pretty good. I know many here have dreams/plans/ideas and so on as to what they would like to do with their properties and the new water rates have caused many to rethink what they currently have and start looking at other more water-wise landscaping. So, I thought some might be interested in this post.

Designer in Residence (DIR) Program at Tree of Life Nurserydesign image

Book ½ Hour Design Appointments with Design professionals right here at Tree of Life Nursery.
Saturdays from 10a-3p in October, November, February, March and April.

As more and more people choose to upgrade their landscaping from boring lawns and tired ornamental plants to sustainable and vibrant native plant gardens, they are discovering they might need a little design help along the way. Starting THIS SATURDAY and throughout the months of October, November 2011, and February, March and April 2012, Tree of Life Native Plant Nursery has put together a network of independent professional designers to be on site for your convenience. The "Designer in Residence" will be available to provide half hour design consultations for the small fee of $25.00. Book a Consultation Here (payment required), or book on-the-sport here at the nursery.

The designers who are participating in this program have already participated at many Tree of Life events and workshops, and each one is from a different area in Southern California, ranging from San Diego to Los Angeles. These designers are independent business owners who will represent their own landscaping design services. We are excited that they have chosen to partner with us and to make their services known to our customers.

Let us introduce the five firms participating in the program to date and how you can receive a discount on plants for participating! >>

Our Potting Mix

Native plant quality is our passion.

potting mix tractorTop quality, every time. At Tree of Life Nursery, we believe that native plant landscaping and ecological restoration are both very important endeavors and that plants grown for projects in these fields should be only of the very highest quality. That is why we produce all our plants ready to meet the rigors of any jobsite. With excellent nursery hygiene, proper seasonal growth rates on our plants, targeted root:shoot ratios, root colonization with beneficial microorganisms (read about our mycorrhizae program), excellent drainage, monitored nutrition, and root systems that quickly establish on the new site, our plants are especially suitable for the challenging conditions found on any and every jobsite.
