We heart our friends at Xylem Organic Gardening for all the TLC they give our planters!
Our Trace planters (an urban garden, don't you think?!) have never looked so good! We've got Purple Sage, Oregano, Bay Leaves, Chamomile, Borage Lemon Verbena, Anise Hyssop, Chocolate and Orange Mint, Papalo (Summer Cilantro), and Scented Geraniums - Rose, Orange, Lemon, and Gooseberry.

Last spring I wrote about my first venture into horticulture, actually investing a substantial amount of money into flower beds in front of my house. I was elated at the way they looked in September, and then worried a bit through the winter. And I worried a lot early in the spring when Molly, the neighbor and professional gardener who did the planting, cut everything back. And even as I worried about that, I wrote, “I trust Molly, and I trust God to give the growth.” My trust has been confirmed, of course. I’ve had a riot of roses ever since, and a beautiful esperanza blooming in gorgeous yellow. The lantana and the plumbago are coming out, and it’s all making me so happy!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Our yard has been completely transformed! We wanted to give our old yard some punch and boy did y'all deliver! Beginning with our first appointment you have been very timely. You also gave us a time line and followed through. The job was well planned and carried out! You started rebuilding the irrigation system that was torn up when the pool was built all the way through planning, planting, fertilizing and finally mulching. You also made sure to incorporate our lawn areas and mowing needs so that it would be easy to maintain and it has been. You listened to our ideas and incorporated many of them while keeping your vision in tack. I would've never imagined that we could have so many plants and such different varieties while still having the entire yard look as though it had always been that way. It was hard to tell there was a plan at all when I first looked at it and now I can see how all the varieties of plants, numbers of each one, the various colors and textures all blend and work together. Also, thank you for the written planting list. I still refer to it as I am trying to call the plants by name and to be more familiar when my neighbors ask me for the name of the plants. It has also helped me to look up some of the plants on the internet to see how they thrive. You all gave us that WOW factor that we were looking for! It's amazing! Best of all, my neighbors are jealous!

I cannot say enough great things about Molly and Jonathan at Xylem Organic Gardening! They worked with us to design and install the perfect garden for us; it looks great, smells great and is easy to take care of. I would (and have) recommend them to anyone!

Xylem Organic Gardening did a wonderful job landscaping and irrigating our yard. They designed a low maintenance, yet beautiful and interesting landscape that fits perfectly with the style of our pool and home. Molly, Jonathan and their staff are professional and really took the time to listen to us; they continue to help us with any concerns. We highly recommend them for your next landscaping and irrigation project.
We want our clients to think of us as gardeners who have an incredible and intelligent eye for balance and design.
Whatever style of garden we create, all of our designs hold a common thread of being responsibly thought-out, designed for immediate enjoyment as well as longevity, and in harmony with the environment.
