Many of us have put our health at the top of our New Year’s resolution list. We want to be active and eat healthier. A great way to work toward both of these resolutions is by having Quiet Village Landscaping design, install, and maintain an edible garden to keep your healthier resolution going strong through this spring and beyond!

Grow Native! is a native landscaping educational program of the Missouri Prairie Foundation.
Quiet Village Landscaping first learned about Grow Native! through our involvement with native planting and biodiversity events and programs throughout the Midwest, and this summer we were happy to become the latest professional member of this amazing organization.
Summer arrived in St. Louis with thunder, lightning and steady rainfall! The kick-off to July has been damp so far, bringing with it sewer overflow, yard flooding, and in some cases, need for rain mitigation.
Quiet Village Landscaping has been involved with MSD’s Project Clear Rainscaping Small Grants Program over the past several years, and now we’re helping home and business owners apply for the 2016-17 round of grants available!
If your like most homeowners, your looking for ways to reduce the cost of home maintenance, including landscaping costs. Keep your St. Louis yard looking good by paying special attention to the health of your perennial plants, shrubs & trees.
As many of us dust off and install our feeders for the winter, it’s worth considering what more we can do in our landscaping for our feathered friends. Birds are in trouble and need our help. In the past 400 years we have lost 9 species in North America – today nearly half of our bird species in North America are considered threatened (that’s 314 species!). So what can we do to support them in our own yards?
Backyard bird feeding is a great first step but considering one or more of these items to create a true habitat in your yard. You’ll be amazed with the new birds you will start to see and will probably start noticing the array of other creatures that start calling your yard home.
For more information on what more you can do for the birds, contact the St. Louis chapter of the Audubon Society and ask about their Bring Conservation Home Program .
Rebecca Eisele, one of our landscape designers, has a passion for birds and would love to help you get started.
