Garden Design

Gardens can be as varied as the ones who plant them, from manicured and trim to wild and free. We certainly aren’t designers, but we have found a variety of resources to help you design the native plant garden of your dreams!

New for 2022! Want to optimize the ecological balance of your landscape? Have us out for a consultation to help guide you in plant choices. Want to know what plants to keep, what to remove, and what you might like to add? Open to those that live within 30 miles from Norwell.

A national organization dedicated to getting more native plants in our landscape has developed regional planting plans. The designs were created with the premise that using native plants in landscaping can be beautiful, promote wildlife, and be achievable for gardeners of all skillsets in terms of scope and budget.
