The Hobbit Hacienda

Well all... This is one of the many reasons GROW has been out of touch lately. As I mentioned before we have recently taken on a few really fun projects and The Hobbit Haienda is one. The owners wanted us to come in and help redesign an existing Garden that includes an amazing 50 year old cactus garden that transitions into an area that will soon be a Zen zone. More pics to come.

Stonesmith Garden Vessels

These past few months GROW has been working on a few landscapes and inevitably fountains come into the mix. It's always a difficult task to find the perfect water feature but luckily we didn't have to look far. Here in Cambria, Calif is Stonesmith, a local company that makes just about everything for the modern garden. They are wholesale only so for those of you interested in pricing, contact GROW directly.

Stapelia Flower

Above is a photo sent to me by a customer and friend from Bakersfield. It's of a fly that has laid eggs on an amazing Stapelia flower. What happens is the flower's carrion smell attracts flies which often lay eggs on the flower. Sometimes even fly larvae that have hatched from the eggs can be seen on the flower. Nature at its finest.

Sorry about the delay

You can see how much has been going on by the lack of blogs lately. Sorry. Life and work has been crazy. I am excited however to let you all know that GROW has been working on a tremendous amount of amazing projects that will be featured in the upcoming months so keep an eye out.

Above is a photo our friends from Neenoon sent us. It's the bloom of Hoya Obovata and was purchased here at GROW!
Nice one you two.

More to come soon.... promise.
