Mount Hood Gardens Monthly Newsletter • September/October 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.

Autumn has arrived. The nights are chilly now, with days still being pleasantly warm and sunny. Many of the trees and shrubs are already turning: Maples, Stewartias, Sweetspire, among others, are showing off their crimson fall color. So very early!

We are now beginning our fall planting season. Along with the plants in our on-site nursery, we have already received several large deliveries of plants, which we are readying for our projects. We always go through quite a process, pruning and cleaning each plant. By reducing its transpiration surface, and soaking the root ball in a root hormone solution, we are ensuring its successful establishment in the landscape.

Here is to glorious autumn! Wishing you plentiful opportunities to enjoy the remaining warmth and sunshine.

We welcome your comments and would love to hear from you


Warm regards,
