Customer success is our number one priority. As such, we take great pride in asking the specific questions to determine which plant material will work best in your location. We do not want to sell you a plant if we are not confident that it will successfully thrive in your space. We want to help you get it right the first time, ensuring there's no need to rip and replace unsuccessful products and waste time and energy doing so. We are so confident in the quality of our plants and the quality of our recommendations that we guarantee our trees and shrubs for one full year.
