Gardening & Landscape

The swelling population of Saratoga County has lead to a boost in consumer horticulture. We are constantly challenged to meet the growing needs of this diverse group. Individuals and communities seek environmentally sound options based on ecological approaches to the design and management of the home grounds. Our goals include aid in the management of pests in and around the home, as well as the home grounds, with minimum impact on health and environment.
