gardening authority in the Pacific Northwest. For

knowledge of plants and gardening on television and
radio. Ed knows our area and can answer your
specific questions, helping you solve the problems
and issues sprouting(or not) in your garden.
Art Sanders is a news anchor on KOMO Newsradio [am

Saturday mornings. Art's been involved with
gardening on radio since the early 90's and is also

The show features regular and timely updates on the
Gardening do's and don'ts of the particular season
and weekend we're currently experiencing. Listeners
often define the course of the discussion, because
many of us are dealing with the same issues
simultaneously. We'll also add little known and
interesting facts and dispell the fictions of
gardening. You'll also hear useful advice to keep
any garden growing strong.
Show sponsors will often participate by lending
their expertise in a given area. From time to time
we go on the road for "remote" broadcasts and take
"live" questions from audience members who join us
on location. Stay tuned as well for special
promotional events such as tours of area gardens
hosted by Ed and Art.

We are a nursery tree farm specializing in
Privacy Trees for screening.
We have several thousand privacy trees growing at our Snohomish farm. Plus
we have many years' experience in "what
works where", professional planting services, ongoing support, and thousands of
satisfied customers. Buying directly from a grower has great
advantages--fresh trees, great selection, and low prices--you maximize your
purchasing power. For more information click here.
We also have privacy trees
that are not available elsewhere, such as our
"Hedged Privacy Trees".
For many years we have been pruning some of our privacy trees
into tall, narrow hedges so we now have "Instant Privacy" trees in a narrow,
hedged form. Sometimes these "hedged" trees are the only trees that will
fit into the planting space, and no
one else in the Northwest has anything like them. You can see our hedged
and natural privacy trees in our beautiful 8 minute YouTube
We also have a nice selection of
Trees, with many of our trees being on the "Great
Plant Picks" list for the Pacific Northwest.
We will help you determine which trees
are right for your project, and provide you with free, no-obligation estimates.
This is often accomplished by e-mail and phone, usually first using our online
Request Form. Where necessary, we will send one of our experts out to
review the project (no cost or obligation).
We’re conveniently located
just 15 minutes north of Woodinville. We’d be happy to have you out.
We are a farm, not a retail nursery so we don't keep regular retail hours; instead we set up appointments so that
we can focus on your project--we look at photos and plans with you, and
drive you around the farm and look at the tree options.
Payment: We don’t require any
money “up front”—you only pay when the job is completed (unusual exceptions
to this are large/special projects or lengthy “holds” on trees). Be careful of
contractors asking for “up front” money; they might not come back!
When we plant your trees we include
staking (if necessary), transplanting fertilizer, and an
easy-to-use watering system that hooks into your garden hose.
We also give a one year Warranty on trees we plant, for no additional
charge. More information
We have a detailed “Care
of Your Trees” section of our website, and provide ongoing support--we're
available to answer your questions as your new trees grow.
We pride ourselves on our
Customer Service—real people answering the phone. We have an "A+" rating
with the Better Business Bureau (their highest rating), are an Angie's List Super Service Award
winner, have excellent reviews on Yelp, Google, etc. and a 100% satisfaction rating with eBay.
Business: We’ve been in business
since 1995 and have a dedicated, experienced staff, most of whom have
been with us for many years.
We sell retail & wholesale,
for residential and commercial projects. We are a registered Washington State contractor
(License Number: NURSEL*956J1).
Be sure to hire a
registered contractor -- to go to the Department of Labor &
Industries website to check a contractor's registration,
here. As it says
there: "Unregistered contractors carry no bond or insurance to
protect consumers. Consumers can face serious issues if anything goes
wrong on a job." These liability risks are in addition to
fraud, poor workmanship, worthless warranties, etc. We are fully
bonded and insured, of course.
Most important of all is
what our customers think of us:
"I am really pleased with your work. You saved me several
thousand dollars, steered me away from trees that wouldn't work, provided
healthy and beautiful trees, did a great job planting them, and did everything
on time and on schedule. You can quote me." Jo, Vashon Island
"Our privacy bank of trees has done nothing but grow well
into maturity. Our back yard and deck area is totally private and the 10
trees your team planted [in 2005] are rich, leathery and dark green. We
remark on them every day it seems. Please include me in any of your
"Testimonials" as you would be hard pressed to find a more satisfied
Jim, Port Orchard
"For quality vs. value, your trees are the best landscape
purchase I’ve ever made." Jeff, Seattle
"Michael, I just wanted to pass along a note to tell you how thrilled I am with
the trees. The effect they have brought to our new courtyard in the front
of our home here in Seattle has exceeded my expectations!"

"I work in customer service so I know good service when I
experience it and you have my top rating. I would definitely recommend you to
anyone who needs new landscaping. Thanks again.” Carol, Camano Island
[new] trees were a great privacy feature when we sold the last
house! We now have a much larger space we want to talk with you about . . "
Katherine, Fall City
“My compliments to your crew. We’ve had a lot of contractors
working on our house recently and we’ve seen the entire range; and your guys
were excellent. The trees make things look so much better—I started smiling as
soon as I saw them going in."
Holly, Queen Anne
"You guys are the best nursery I've ever done business with! And I
have dealt with a few. You did what you said you would, on time with attention
to detail rarely found. From the beginning of the quote process all the way
through to the last detail you made it easy. And you work to ensure that the
trees will thrive after planting with detailed advice, a complementary
irrigation system, and a website filled with useful information. Most nurseries
will just dump off the goods and tell you best of luck, put some water on them.
You provide a quality product that sets you apart. Your crew was friendly,
polite and operated as a well organized team. I would recommend you without
hesitation! Thanks for doing a great job!” Ryan, Buckley
"We can not believe how beautiful your trees are. The privacy is
unbelievable. If you ever need a testimonial let us know. Our yard
is perfect! We sit there and say "my oh my”! Suzanne, Tacoma
"I don't think I've ever been as happy with something I've
