Magenta

Magenta:

Means Harmony and balance

 Promotes compassion and kindness

 Encourages a sense of contentment

 This coneflower, grown at our sister company @montalegarden, is just a wonderful color pop to any garden.

Lilac

Lilac:

 Considered Graceful

 Associated with romance and affection

 The Summer Beauty Allium is always a show stopper. Great color, long and lanky leaves and bees love them. Grown at our sister company @montalegardens we are always happy when we can specify these.

Purple

Purple:

 Royalty and Nobility

 Represents wisdom

 Can help with Peace and Pride

 It also is associated with creativity, which is maybe why we love this Iris so much. Pair this with the ‘Mauna Loa’ orange daylily and get a massive color pop in your garden.

White

White:

 Light and Purity

 Means goodness and cleanliness

 Represents a successful beginning

 What’s most important to us is that it is the color of perfection. This phlox ‘David’ is snowy white and helps balance out the other colors in the garden.

Orange

Orange:

 Combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow

 Associated with joy and sunshine

 Represents enthusiasm

 As the weather begins to change slowly orange is the color of fall and the harvest. This daylily ‘Mauna Loa’ is absolutely stunning in a mid summer garden.

Erosion Control using plants

So you have a steep hill, what to do?

 Plantings help prevent erosion

 Plantings add color

 Plantings add interest

 Plantings become a show piece

 Sure, we added 100 tons, or more, of stone, but to enhance the look you need plantings. Lots and lots of beautiful and wonderful plantings of shrubs and perennials to make the look, literally, come alive.

Artistry runs deep here

A custom sculpture by our owner Harry J Vignocchi

My father Harry graduated from Drake University with a major in Psychology and dual minors in philosophy and art.
Kind of interesting for a future landscape architect. But I’ve always thought it is part of what makes him and our subsequent culture a unique.
One where creativity isn’t touted, it is practiced. Both on the drawing boards and on jobsites.
This scupture is a new piece by my dad made out of stone. He often is encouraged by customers to create these custom pieces for their landscape…but it’s all about catching him in the correct mood…just like a true artist.
