Why Organics & Native and Well-Adapted Plants Are Best For You
Using organic products is best for your pocketbook, our planet, and for the people on it. Organics have proven effective over the long term. Admittedly, some require a little more patience and our society does love instant results. So get more from your garden - slow down and smell the roses, be good to the earth, your garden, yourself and your kids. We'll make it easy for you and be with you step-by-step to get started on the road to a healthy, happy yard for you and your family.
Like organics, native and well-adapted plants are good for your budget and the earth. They require much less water and are more pest and disease-resistant requiring less treatment with “control” products. You've probably learned over the years it is hard to “control” Mother Nature! But she is kind when you work with her. You'll find that just a little organic fertilizer and a few natural amendments a couple of times a year will produce great results.
Research indicates that water is North Texas’ most precious natural resource. Conserving water and keeping what we have clean and usable is imperative your families future. Using organics and plants that do not require massive amounts of water to thrive goes perfectly with your philosophy of being kind to the earth. And you’ll be happy to see your summer water bill go down too!
To make the most of your gardening dollar, we started our tree farm, Brillo Verde, in 2001. The farm insures a good supply of quality grade #1 native and well-adapted shade and ornamental trees at the most competitive price points. Since then the farm has expanded and produces over 40,000 perennial every year. Now, you have access to a quality supply of perennial throughout the year instead only during the peak spring season. You can do gardening when it fits your time frame and makes it easy to take advantage of the wonderful opportunity nature provided us here in North Texas of doing major landscaping the fall season. Planting in the spring is fun, and we must admit we do an awful lot of it. But planting in the fall gives new landscapes the best opportunity to build a strong root base before the stress of their first summer season’s hot and dry conditions.
