Doing a 180

A couple years back, Winona State University built a gorgeous, Silver LEED-certified Integrated Wellness Center (IWC).  The landscape was not looking quite as stellar as the building, but that has all changed due to a senior student’s capstone project idea…and collaborative follow-through.  We were happy to be part of the landscape project that turned the IWC’s landscape into a thing of beauty.  The 180-degree change is being embraced by the university community and community-at-large!  You can read more about the project and see some pictures here:


Aw, shucks…and thanks!

Well this has never happened to us before…an award AND one of our projects landing on the front cover of a supplier’s catalog!  We didn’t even have an acceptance speech prepared.

We’ll keep it short-and-sweet and tip our appreciative hat to Rochester Concrete and say a very heartfelt thank you to all you great customers who keep asking us to design and install new projects.  THANK YOU!!!

Can it be true?

While at our association’s trade show last week (the MNLA), I spied a Wisteria plant in bloom.  A new, improved variety.  Could it be true…will THIS be the wisteria to reliably perform in our area?  It has a name–Summer Cascade.  Doesn’t that sound lovely?  I’m hoping to get my hands on one to trial this summer.  Stay tuned!
