Your Pittsburgh Landcare Experts

While perennials are the plants du jour in most landscape designs, these long-lived plants rarely offer the same combination of instant curb appeal and the lengthy bloom time of annuals. Our annual installations can give you showy gardens and months of colorful bloom that more popular perennials can't match on their own.

HARDY, REWARDING GARDENS

Perennials can be picky, requiring ideal soil conditions, light & shade considerations and protection from over- or under-watering in order to stay most healthy. While those conditions can often be controlled, annuals are often better suited to growing well in less-than-ideal circumstances. These plants often thrive in full sunlight and retain their color throughout the growing season. Our winter interest installations can also make use of cut plants, such as evergreens and hardwood perennials, to give your spaces color through the winter.

BETTER TOGETHER

Give your garden season-long interest with a combination of perennial and annual plants. Annuals can thrive in less-ideal conditions with shallow-soil root structures and a greater tolerance for sun and drought. They also bring color to the garden from the day they're planted to first frost, complementing short-bloom perennials with color until winter sets in.
