The birds and the bees . . . and the butterflies!
As conservators of our fragile environment, Gerbert & Sons has maintained its commitment to organic landscaping solutions for our clients for more than 75 years. One aspect of this approach is the installation of sustainable landscapes incorporating indigenous plantings that require less water, fertilization, and pesticide and often reduce erosion. Many of these native plants have the beneficial quality of attracting and sustaining local pollinators such as butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds, which in turn transfer pollen to keep our gardens blooming and producing seed for the next generation of plants. It is critical to maintain the vitality of these species, while also keeping people and pets safe, by opting for organic landscaping strategies and moving away from chemical pesticides and herbicides.
Summertime container gardens
As summer begins and we move into warmer weather, transition your existing container gardens, or consider adding a new one, planting more heat adaptive varieties with Amy Elizabeth Uva, our Horticulturist and Master Gardener. She will recommend container options that complement your property and organically fill them with the wonderful colors, fragrances, and textures of nature, welcoming family and friends as we get together and enjoy being outdoors. Perhaps dedicate one of these containers with specific choices to attract valuable pollinators, resulting in an oasis of not only beauty but eco-friendly function. Have Amy’s creativity enhance your property with the simple elegance of professionally crafted container gardens.
