We are counting the days until Spring and plan to kick-off the Spring season on March 23rd with our Nursery Spring Open House. From then on, we'll be adding Saturday hours 8am-4pm. For 2019, we will move our retail nursery sales back to the front Roadside Kiosk. Here you will be able to purchase both nursery items and our Unity-grown produce. Our main building will then become a dedicated design center for our Landscape Design/Build company. Until then, we continue open for nursery and produce sales in our main building Monday-Friday 8:00-5:00.
Here at the farm, we're excited about the coming growing season and providing all of you with delicious fresh produce and vegetable and herb plants. We've turned on the heater in our greenhouse and have started our seedling production. We've planted in our high tunnels and hope March brings some warm, sunny days to dry and warm up our outside garden beds.
landscape division has been steadily working away this winter. The rainy days are still full of activity with design and permitting projects while our field technicians have also remained busy throughout the winter despite what Mother Nature has sent our way.
Our schedule is filled with many exciting projects, but one in particular we can talk about is the work currently taking place on the "Parking Lot Alive" installation at Adkins Arboretum. This bay-friendly project is a series of ESD (Environmentally Sustainable Design) applications which will treat the surface water in the main parking areas at the Arboretum and includes a footbridge over one of the micro-bio-retention systems for up and personal viewing. Check out our Facebook page and Instagram account for progress updates.
The final touches are being added to our Landscape Design Center in our main office building where we will continue to welcome visitors looking for inspiration and to work with our landscape design team on your master plan or current project. The design center will feature stone, brick, and concrete product samples for retaining walls, patios, and driveways; low voltage lighting and irrigation product lines; quality outdoor furniture, shade umbrellas, hammocks, fire pits and other outdoor living amenities; along with our high quality lines of pottery, fountains and garden sculpture.
Stop by to meet with our team and be inspired.
