The Gardening Tutor

Friend/Customer Spotlight

Today I’d like to start something new, a “Friend/Customer Spotlight”. With my background in landscaping, I often get asked tons of questions from customers that come in to look at rock. I don’t mind answering these questions, and if you know me, I’m sure you know that I love to talk – but I’d like to pass you off to a much more qualified individual!

On a side note, I’d like to praise Mary for her tenacious quest for knowledge; she is always telling me about new tips and tricks that she has learned, seminars and classes that she has taken and her love of helping people really shines! It’s great to see assertive and strong women holding their own in a predominantly male-driven industry – I am happy to know her and call her my friend.

Mary Frost, also known as the Gardening Tutor, has been coming into our shop to buy compost and planting mix for years. She’s constantly going the extra mile for her clients, and she’s the kind of person that we love working with! I once heard her say “when you know better, you do better” – and I couldn’t agree more, so in that same spirit, I’d like to help Mary, help you do better.

Yard Updates


It’s been spring for a few weeks now, and our spring cleaning is well under way. We’ve been planning a yard expansion for a while and we decided that this is the year to go big.

Don’t worry, we’re keeping everything that our customers have come to expect us to have. We will be expanding upon our existing product line, by adding new sizes of our current materials, and we will be adding to our decorative rock, bark and construction materials

New Materials

Gray Decomposed Granite

We’ve always carried the popular Gold Decomposed Granite, but now we have added the Gray Decomposed Granite. This pathway material helps add a clean, old world feel to any outdoor living space. 

Turf Base

The increase in synthetic turf installation has led us to source a better base material to use as a foundation. Our newly sourced “Turf Base” is a 3/8″ aggregate, high in clay composition to meet compaction.  

Arizona Flagstone

We have been carrying Arizona Flagstone for a while now, and we’ve recently decided to add “Sunset” to our existing color lines, in both stand-up and patio sizing – orange and red hues swirl on a peach/yellow background – you’ve gotta come check this stuff out. 

Mini Fir Bark

This is a new size of the decorative fir bark that we’ve carried for a while now, great for smaller planter beds and decorative areas, this tends to match great with most local low-maintenance shrubs.
