We were tired of the usual grass yard behind our house and connected with Russ Henry of Giving Tree Gardens. Russ designed a rain garden, butterfly garden and native stone walk and patio in our back yard and a rain garden on one side of our front yard. My wife's home office over looked the rear of our house and she enjoyed watching the different native plants bloom at different times over the summer and fall as well as the butterflies and bees that frequented the blooming flowers. We high recommend Russ to anyone tired of the run of the mill grass yard who wants interesting native plants instead.Dec 22, 2014
If you are looking for a garden that will flourish for years, honors nature, and sustains our environment, then Giving Tree Gardens is an undeniable choice. Thoughtful care and design will be taken to provide you with the garden you envision. I engaged Giving Tree Gardens to install two large gardens that are thriving, and received professional advice on how to maintain my existing landscaping as well. I have also been happy with the ongoing maintenance service and am intending to hire them again to install an even larger butterfly garden and fire pit.Dec 22, 2014

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I love taking gardening classes and learning about other folks successful methods!
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I love plants! I gardened with my mom when I was a boy and I worked at various nurseries and landscaping companies until I was prepared to start my own company with an Earth-friendly focus.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I consult with folks about their gardens and landscapes quite a bit. The consultations seem to be very helpful for do-it-yourself folks who want to improve their gardens, learn a thing or two, and save a whole bunch of money. I do lots of installations for folks who wish to see more butterflies, flowers, birds, free food, and beautiful plants right outside their doors!
