Springtime at the Smulders!

Boxwood underplanted with shade-loving Caladiums and Cherry Blossom Begonias (Concrete Container provided by CGOA)

Small scale garden design

Spring at Mar Mar's House!

Hibiscus mark the entrance to Mar Mar's pool deck. We chose concrete containers (provided by CGOA) to coincide with the concrete pool deck and stacked stone walls behind the pool.

Cast Iron Urns (provided by CGOA) look perfect on the porch of this white house with black shutters. To give some color to the front porch, we chose various pink and white Geraniums. Simple and Beautiful!

So many enjoy cooking, that it seems crazy not to have your own herbs! This trio of pots includes Rosemary, Peppermint, and Lavender.

Most everything is this window box lasted from our January install. We just had to replace the Snapdragons and Primrose with Spring color....Vinca, Impatiens, Gaura, and Veronica.

This area has 4 shady windowboxes that hang outside of a screened porch. They look great as a whole, and as individuals (shown below). They contain a great mix of shade-loving colors and textures.

House for Sale!!

In this housing market, it is easy to think that a house will just never sell. People are thinking hard of ways to improve the curb appeal of homes, but are hesitant to take on the costs of a full blown landscaping job. The solution......CONTAINERS!!!! Below are 'after' pictures that show the difference that two window boxes made for this precious Peachtree Hills home.

Morris Brandon School Auction

In March, CGOA donated an outdoor container to Morris Brandon's Auction. Donations like these make it possible for the renowned public elementary school to have things like new playgrounds and the best teachers. We were glad to give to such a wonderful cause!

Orchids, Hydrangeas, and Ferns...oh my!

Here is a glimpse into our interior work. Remember us for your spring parties and events. You can enjoy a potted arrangement for months, while cut flowers only last days!!
