At Pleasant View Gardens we design all spaces. From small areas of a yard to entire properties, and from residential to commercial sites. We can create an area to best fit your style, needs, and budget.
Once a design has been created, and approved the installation can commence. By removing some or all of the existing landscaping and enhancing soils we are able to transform dull, lifeless areas.
Keeping your space clean and organized helps keep the lasting effect of the initial design, as well as assists with plant health. We work with designs we have custom created, as well as designs from other groups.

Holiday Plant Care

Holiday Plant Care

The holiday season is coming to a close, and a new year has begun. If you’ve been to a garden center recently, you’ve likely seen the variety of plants that are sold as holiday plants to celebrate Christmas. The poinsettias are always popular, along with other favorites, such as Amaryllis and Thanksgiving Cactus. The Nursery growers have made sure these plants look their best during the weeks leading up to Christmas. Once the holidays are over, people often discard these plants because they no longer have blooms to enjoy. But with proper care, these plants can continue to be grown and flourish in your home for years to come. Today we’ll look at some of these plants and how to care for them the rest of the year.

Creating Winter Interest

Winter is a quiet time of year in the garden. The flowers are no longer blooming, the pollinators have begun hibernating and the plants are dormant.

We often miss the lush green growth of summer and eagerly wait for spring when the garden will burst into bloom once again.

Oak Tree Pruning

In order to attain a handsome stature, it’s critical to prune an Oak early in its life. This is what is called developmental pruning. It’s done when the tree is very young to encourage proper growth as it develops in your landscape. Once an Oak reaches maturity, it’s long past time to prune for proper growth.

Rose Pruning

Minnesota gardeners who cultivate roses in their landscapes are most likely keenly aware of pruning

Minnesota, the hybrid Tea Rose, the shrub Rose (aka Floribunda roses), and the climbing Rose, all of
which require slightly different pruning actions.
