For our special Earth Day blog, Landscape Designer Karen Spreitler discusses what Earth Day in St. Louis means to her, and ways you can join her in going green!
We’re hosting two open house Career Fair Events at our office in March!
St. Louis, Missouri received its first sizable snowfall this week, with an estimated 3″ accumulating in the St. Louis-metropolitan area. The Quiet Village Landscaping team was out in the winter elements overnight – plowing, shoveling, and salting the residential and commercial properties of our clients.
Recycle your Christmas tree after the holidays by donating it to be re-purposed into mulch and wood chips at the following St. Louis-area locations

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.
Quiet Village Landscaping looks forward to helping you reduce your workload in order to celebrate more important things during this Holiday Season!

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.
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 email@example.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 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.
