The Collection of Mother Natures Living Arts and Stone Wonders

2018-08-31T16:41:50+00:00

When asked for a solution to soften/hide this generator which was killing all life in front of it from heat..here’s my answer.
3 different types of field stone for a dimensional groovy
patina effect,
& will improve with age. All fastened with my secret sauce.
Instead of the threadbare plants that generally get
stuffed in corners of properties, why not bring
some choice tiering contrast and texture?.
Also used is my signature black aluminum edging surrounding the feature separating the mulch
from the breathtaking Bengal polished beach pebble’s,
with a 4-inch multi-colored crush granite base underneath?
And running alongside, Awabuki Viburnum for a
hawaiian island shrub flavor of the vibe.

Too blessed to be stressed!

Many install filler on the sides of their property.
No worries, I’ll take the lead.
Side’s of property are all
killer & no filler.
And while you’re at it,
put some whimsical of color on it.

The Phyla of Multicellular Organisms and Dimensional Color

2018-08-31T16:29:02+00:00

Here is the latest project from the canvas of the Kafcas.
The creative juices were flowing and much
thanks to The Greenery of Tampa Bay nursery.
They have the best selection of plant material
in Florida.
Willie Martinez, I’m feelin’ those purple Nandina!
When I install annuals, I use a grower who grows them from seed and purchases the same soil he grows
them in plus I use the same fertilizer blend/
bloom boost as Busch Gardens😉.
I also don’t “stripe and stagger” like the
rest of the pack with my annuals design.
I “bouquet and beautify”.

Also, we perform quarterly tune-ups for the client
where we perform selective pruning,
unique pest & disease control and put the
lovin’ touch on the perennials giving them a happy
extended life.

The irrigation system was redesigned to conserve water and saturate the plants in minimal time.
We installed a cutting-edge new rain sensor as
well.

Also, we installed my sig black aluminum border
to retain mulch and stone.
It was my suggestion to use much more stone than mulch.
The client’s property now will need 20 bags of pine bark verse 90 as before to re-mulch
and the stone is sealed with my invented secret sauce.

The plants will feather out in a cosmos like
fashion so the stone and border will not be
so visual.

I create by these words:

“The details are not the details,
the details are the design”.

And remember!

“We will photosynthesize your passion,
with our creativity “.

Much love,

Xeroscape Recycle(r) Project

2018-08-31T16:09:26+00:00

Here’s a Xeroscape Recycle(r) project we just completed.
The project is named “Re-Up The Cycle”.
This is a 20-year client whom yearly we tune/tailor and refresh the beach sand for.
We selectively removed many
plants and split them up and reconfigured everything
to a new world.

There were also potted plants that were removed
,& split up, the 3 Snake plants behind the pool
were behind the garage in a pot.
The border by the front porch was leftover from
a stash at my shop.
I roll only with black aluminum but for this client
and the desire to get rid of it made for a
perfect solution.
I also had some of that multi-colored crushed
granite leftover, so in the gravel went.
Also plants like the border grass liriope look
trampled or flat, that’s perfectly normal
when transplanting them, in 5 days they’ll
be true to form.

There was also white marble chips around
the stepping stone that’s behind the pool equipment.
I chose to use it in the bed picked because
we discovered the aloe plants buried in foliage, transplanted them
and in my taste, aloe plants don’t “speak” with
mulch surrounding them.
The client did not like the marble chips, so we installed
my signature River Jack and sealed it with
my secret creation sealer.
The stone has much more variation in pastel
colors. It’s wet so the tones are flattened.
But in 3 hours, here comes the magic!
The reason I
revealed this is because of selection
of materials and plants were all based on
“Upcycle”.
I could feel the genuine connection i
have between my mind, the plants and feel.

Many plants were also slightly moved and
re-positioned.

Choose Lasting Plant Life for Heavy Filtered Light to Shade Areas.

2018-08-31T15:58:07+00:00

Here’s a property we relandscaped from 3 years ago.
This is to demonstrate my ability to choose lasting plant life for heavy filtered light to shade areas.
The variegated jasmine minima on each side of the front door were installed 3 months ago.
The large podocarpus shrubs were 7 years ago that
we installed them.
Also, I realize the front walk needs a pressure wash and my company will now offer garden friendly intuitive pressure washing.
Mainly in a package deal with a property makeover.
Some select properties, pressure washing will be available.
