|Leaves are beginning to fall from deciduous trees. Remember that they are a valuable resources that can help improve your soil. Compost them. Don’t discard them!|
Mow your yard with a mulching mower to break up leaves right on the lawn and improve the lawn's soil. Pollinator lovers…create over-wintering habitat for pollinators with fallen leaves, a little bare ground, and shrub clippings. Birds love brush piles too!
If you are raking leaves, we have biodegradable brown paper bags and leaf “funnels” for easy leaf collection.
|FROM WILMA: Marc Montell grew up in Ohio, and is a graduate of the Ohio State University (MFA). After college he spent 14 years in New York City in the art business - making it, selling it, caring for it and teaching. He also worked some odd jobs including legal proofreader, taxi driver, and production assistant on TV commercials.|
As a youngster, Marc convinced his dad to build a water garden in the family’s front yard. After two years as a preparator at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, Marc decided to pursue a long-held interest in water gardening and worked for two aquatic plant and fish wholesalers in Seattle and San Francisco.
Marc worked with us at Reems Creek Nursery pre-economic crisis, during the early 2000’s. After working at Biltmore Estate for approximately 5 years, he rejoined our staff earlier this year. At Biltmore, he enjoyed the Italian Garden with the 50-yr. old Koi, the dangerous (but beautiful) Victoria Platter lilies, and the dragonflies. Marc’s artistic background is a help in the Garden Shop!
