Spring in the garden
Hunt down and remove hibernating pests. Check for slugs, snails, and aphids around the crowns of perennials and eliminate colonies.
Move deciduous shrubs. Make moves on a still day with no wind so the roots don't dry out. Dig a circular trench and give your plant a wide berth. Make sure to plant it at the same level and water it in well.
Give your fences and gates some attention. Fixing or replacing broken structures now will give you more play time in the garden later. It will be easier to see what needs attention when your plants are still dormant.
Kecia Carlson Principal Designer & General Manager "My passion is working with people to create meaningful, stylish and sustainable gardens. I adore the challenge of designing an outdoor living space or garden, seeing the space evolve and the joy it gives the people who live in it, care for it and embrace it. And, I love to observe Mother Nature - she's an amazing teacher!"
David Carlson Think Green Inc. David is responsible for the beautiful build out of our nursery! He and his amazing team - Ablelardo, Primo, Raul, and Armando - did an incredible job, as always. They are very creative and resourceful and it shows in their work. Together they bring life to the beautiful spaces designed on paper.
We are committed to providing our customers the guidance and resources needed to create stylish and sustainable outdoor living environments.
Kecia Carlson founded the company in 2002 after recognizing that many people enjoy gardening and the process of creating a garden or outdoor space, but that each person has different levels of interest, knowledge and ability when it comes to design, horticulture and landscaping. That coupled with the environmental conditions of gardening in the Treasure Valley, only enhances the challenge of creating a great space. She launched Madeline George Landscape & Garden Design to help people create their outdoor living spaces - spaces that are meaningful, stylish and sustainable.
The company began as a small garden design firm. However, since 2002, the company has developed as an award-winning landscape and garden design firm and continues with its design work today. While a majority of the work is residential, the company has designed a number of public and commercial spaces and is currently involved in the design of JUMP in downtown Boise.
Together with partner company, Think Green Inc., Madeline George offers design and build services such as consultations, design, estimates, material selection, installation and construction. The company offers its services in an "a la carte" fashion to facilitate individual needs and interests. See the "Services" tab for more information about our services and fees.
In April 2012, the Company furthered its mission with the opening of a design-driven retail nursery, Madeline George Garden Design Nursery. The Nursery is innovative in its retail design and ability to showcase the variety of garden styles from which customers can draw inspiration for creating their own unique space, as well as education about gardening in the Treasure Valley. The Nursery offers a wonderful collection of plants that thrive in our climate and unique outdoor garden furnishings, including the classic, authentic French bistro line - FERMOB.
