Mount Hood Gardens Monthly Newsletter • NOVEMBER 2018

Welcome to the Mount Hood Gardens website! We aim to provide you with an enjoyable journey through the many diverse gardens and landscapes we have designed and installed over the past three decades. In the portfolio section, particularly under Residential Gardens, you can view the different garden styles and range of award-winning gardens in our repertoire. It is our intent to show you diverse examples of sound landscape design, and provide you with ideas for your own garden, to create your future garden sanctuary. Successful landscapes have a strong, underlying structure, and are composed of harmonious plant communities with year-round, seasonally changing interest.

Winter is near. We have almost completed our fall planting projects, which included several large installations. October was spectacular, allowing us to be very productive.

Now it will be time to switch to fall maintenance for our loyal clients, readying their gardens for winter. Our onsite nursery also will go through quite a process, cutting back and condensing all of the remaining plants. They then will be covered with white insulating fabric, to keep them at a more even temperature, and avoid constant thawing and freezing.

The Holidays will be upon us before we know it. May we all get our projects and winterizing done before it turns frigid!

We welcome your comments and would love to hear from you

Warm regards,

Marion McNew
