Heron Meadows, Mecosta, MI
Gardening is all about trial and error–as this property owner reminds us. As we learn new skills, acquire more information, and get our hands dirty in our landscapes, we gain a better sense of our long-term vision and how to tackle smaller tasks to accomplish our bigger goals. After sixteen years of immense hard work, this property owner is not afraid to put the safety and well-being of her resident wildlife before all else. The result is a gorgeous three acre property that inspired some of our staff to create a list of plants they want to add to their gardens this spring.
