My Dear Client,

I hope all is well with you and yours in this New Year! It has been twenty years since my husband and I relocated to the Bay Area from Chicago. My Landscape Architecture business turns twenty this year, too! Time sure does fly, doesn’t it?

In these past twenty years, it is amazing how many wonderful clients I have had and how many properties I have transformed into beautiful, outdoor living retreats. I am so grateful to have worked with the most amazing individuals, couples and families I could ever imagine.  You have shared with me interesting stories about yourself, your family, your property and your lifestyle – it has been an honor to work with you.

Please stay tuned for the launch of my new website! It will be more interactive with videos and free downloads on various landscape topics with a new layout, updated photos and new colors!

I want to thank you for your referrals and positive reviews. There is nothing better than knowing my clients care enough to tell others about the process of working with me and the results you’ve enjoyed. Your testimonials are gold. I have recently joined Angie’s List and Yelp.com, and it would mean a great deal to me if you could submit a testimonial for my company.

To show my appreciation, click here for your two complimentary passes to the Alameda County Spring Home & Garden Show at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds on February 18, 19 and 20, 2012. This is a great place to shop and look for trends in home improvement projects. I will have a display in the Hall of Commerce and will share a booth with Alden Lane Nursery and Vineyard Landscape Contractors. Please stop by and say “Hi.”

Spring has arrived early this year with a lack of rain and warmer temperatures than usual. Here are a few garden tips to help your plants thrive into the new season:Clean up fallen branches and leaves.
Top dress garden beds with organic mulch for improved soil health and weed control.

Structural prune deciduous trees. Hire a licensed certified arborist for best results. Avoid “topping” trees unless it is a necessity.

Plan your vegetable garden. Now is the time to plant cool season vegetables, such as lettuce, broccoli, beets, onions, radishes and potatoes. Have limited space? One large flowerpot can contain a “living salad,” an herb garden or a lemon tree.

Remove old flowers on camellias and azaleas to reduce the chance of petal blight.

Finally, I want to share a photo of a peaceful project I designed for a San Ramon client! May you spend time in a peaceful place in your own garden and contemplate and enjoy your life in 2012!

With warmest wishes,

Susan
