We love our pets, especially dogs! And, as a landscaping company we also love our gardens and outdoor living spaces. However, sometimes the two don’t seem to mix quite perfectly. One common complaint we hear from our lawn maintenance customers is that dogs destroy flower beds, tear up lawns and aren’t the gentlest with new plants.
At Home Magazine / St. Louis Magazine presented the awards and finalists for this year’s Architect & Designer Awards (ADA), a local design competition with over 300 applicants.

Recently, we’ve seen an increase in attention focused on the plight of pollinators, in particular the honeybee. Honeybees are extremely important agricultural pollinators, while other native bees are also seeing population declines. The Rusty Patched Bumblebee is native to the Upper Midwest and was just added to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services endangered list. Many people have been asking us what they can do to help support local St. Louis-area bee, butterfly, and other pollinator populations.
