My name is Matthes Garrity and I’ve been certified by the International Society of Arboriculture for the last fifteen years. In that time, I’ve collected a lot of information about trees and landscaping. To me, there’s nothing better than a perfectly designed garden, hardscape, or natural landscape. So, I’ve decided to put all of my knowledge and expertise into one easily digestible location. This blog!
I live in Oconomowoc Wisconsin where I’ve worked with countless home and property owners to make their gardens come to life. I’ll be using this blog to share some of those tips and tricks that will leave you excited about gardening without it taking up your whole life. I have a wife and two children, I know that spending time on building a garden isn’t always at the top of mind.
Some of the discussion topics will include easy to do tasks that will immediately set your house apart from all of your neighbors… in a good way. From trees to flowers to stones, I’ll give you the ins and outs on what works functionally and stylistically. I’ll be talking about general fixes and things that are more specific to Wisconsin’s topography. A house that sticks out like a sore thumb can be tasteful, or repulsive. We’ll talk Midwest landscaping and the dos and don’ts. Plus, if you have any specific questions or topics you’d like covered, submit them using the contact page. There’s a lot to discuss and I’ll be making my way through every topic in useful detail. With my easy to read blog, build the house of your dreams without breaking the bank or wasting time.
