Surrounding yourself with plants, indoors and out, is proven to boost
your immune system
and your mood!
The term "forest bathing" is used to describe
an effort to slow down and immerse yourself in nature. The sights, smells and sounds of a natural, wooded environment will reduce stress quickly.

Creating a stone pathway in your woodland yard,
or a permeable pathway in your garden
are easy ways to encourage short walks
in your own spaces.
Did You Know...
Children benefit as much as we do from having outdoor spaces that foster fun with nature,
to disconnect from our over-stimulated world. Adding whimsical features or even a small bench in the midst of a garden can inspire, and encourage reflection.
We are designing new gardens and landscapes for the Spring season right now.
Let us know how
we can help you create your sense of place this year

Garden and Landscape Trends for 2018
Plants, Pollinators and Technology Trends for 2018
Native plants and their cultivars offer so many benefits, they are being embraced more than ever.
From drought or wet tolerance, to being pollinator friendly, to providing interest all year in the landscape, multi-purpose natives add great value to the health of your landscape. GrowHaus is pleased to offer an extended selection of natives and cultivars to add into your planting plan this year.
Flowers for Pollinators:
The U of MN Extension Garden Research has compiled a fresh look at
flowers for pollinators
based on their latest research from the summer of 2017.

We're letting Mother Nature be our guide when choosing the right technologies to deploy this year.
One great tool also developed by the U of MN is an awesome
plant selection database, Plant Elements of Design.
Just create a username and password, and then find access to woody and herbaceous plant information, perfect for selecting plant choices for our Upper Midwest landscapes.
Plant of the Month
The upright, dense habit of this new lilac makes it a great choice for a hedge, or for foundation plantings. Mildew-free, this plant produces shiny violet leaves, purple stems, purple buds, and fragrant violet flowers that remain in bloom well into the summer.
Philanthropic Choice of the Year: The Good Acre
Each year we choose a local non-profit organization to support. This year we have chosen
The Good Acre
, an organization serving local farmers, food makers, and the community at large. We are so impressed with the food hub and infrastructure they have created to enrich the local food system! Check them out! Consider participating in their
farm share program
for the growing season this year.
