Trim Your Trees! Quiet Village Starts Holiday Lighting Season

It seems like it happens every year. You barely have time to digest Halloween Candy and retail stores have transformed into a winter wonderland!

You’d love to make your house feel as festive, but instead every time you visit the grocery store you are reminded of that daunting task. Rather than spend your time digging through cords and replacing burnt out bulbs, consider these reasons for hiring Quiet Village to handle your Holiday Lighting.

  • CUSTOM DESIGN. Overwhelmed by the prospect of lighting your home for the holidays? Have a member of our design team meet with you to discuss your ideas for the perfect holiday display. A made-to-order design will highlight your unique taste and character, while considering the landscape, architecture, infrastructure, and logistics.
  • SAVE TIME & ENERGY. Filled with excitement and joy, the holidays are also one of the busiest times of year. Save time, effort, and money by allowing us to cross this chore off your to-do-list. Our crews are trained to install your display quickly and efficiently so you’re not hanging lights for hours in the cold. In addition, we install LED lighting technology which uses 75% less energy and lasts 25 times longer than older incandescent lighting systems.
  • PROFESSIONAL TAKEDOWN AND STORAGE. Once the Holiday parties have ended the last thing you want to do is deal with the clean-up. Not only do we install your lighting system but we take down your decorations and store them until you need them the following year. No need to find extra space in the attic.

What’s a Pondless Waterfall?

By: Evan Winkler, Landscape Design Assistant

This month a small group of landscape professionals, including our Design Assistant Evan Winkler, gathered at the Covenant House to participate in a Pondless Waterfall Workshop hosted by MPR Supply Company.

The Covenant House is a non-profit here in St. Louis, which provides emergency shelter to homeless youth; as well as providing the skills and resources to become successful members of our community. As part of that mission, the Covenant House is turning an empty side yard into a serenity garden. Many at-risk youth suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and the garden will be a safe place for reflection and meditation.

What started as digging a hole in the ground quickly became a one-of-a-kind pondless waterfall. Now anchoring the northeast corner of the future serenity garden, a pondless waterfall in this location has many benefits.

Pondless Waterfall

  • Reduces street noise
  • Visually appealing
  • Virtually maintenance-free
  • Perfect for setting where liability and safety might be a concern
  • A great alternative to more demanding ponds

For more information on pondless waterfalls or if you’d like to speak with a Quiet Village Landscaping expert on creation of your own pondless waterfall, please contact our office at (314) 657-7050 or email info@quietvillagelandscaping.com

It was a privilege for Quiet Village to take part in this workshop which was both educational and supportive to the efforts of our community.

U City in Bloom Garden Tour 2015

U City in Bloom is a non-profit beautification effort for the St. Louis neighborhood, University City. Through community involvement and engagement they have greatly improved the beauty of local street corners, schools and parks.

Their bi-annual Fall Garden Tour was a great hit this year, with absolutely perfect weather, a great turnout and a great selection of gardens showcasing University City’s historic residential areas.

Quiet Village Landscaping was happy to participate, by offering garden tips and advice at featured garden #7 in the historic Parkview neighborhood, where we interviewed Horticultural Director for U City in Bloom, Jesse Gilbertson who gave a great insight into the organization and a unique Bonsai Garden from the tour.
