Let Art and Linda's Wildflowers care for your special garden. We will cut down, clean up and remove dead plant material in the spring; plant and prepare gardens in the fall; compost, weed, mulch and remove buckthorn.

We will also build and install composters and lighting. Click here to visit the University of Missouri Extension for detailed information about composting systems. Or click here to visit Rot Web, which also has outstanding general composting information.

(This page is new - please return later in the spring for more information about these services. )

Your garden will look great through all the seasons and will be appreciated by the butterflies, bees, birds and other wildlife that will visit there to eat and rest.
