"Anything we do to take responsibility for the health of our little corner of the planet is a gift we give for generations to come."

Dirty_Hands_Healthy_Gardens

The foundation that makes possible the life we can all see around us from birds to bees to trees to people is the microbial soil-food-web.

Enchantingly beautiful, bees and butterflies are unfortunately ever more rarely seen.  The good news is that you can do something about it at home.

Water flows over all of our landscapes. Rain gardens, healthy soils, native plants, ground covers, and wood mulch are all part of the tool-kit for filtering and cleaning rainwater.

We love to help guide folks through the process of understanding how to manage lawns and gardens in ways that protect pollinators, clean water, and provide year-round beauty.

Native Plants & Trees

Planting native plants and trees is one of the best ways to work with, rather than against, nature.

By matching plant species to your particular area you will have plants and trees that take less care and energy and will be healthier than exotic species.

Another benefit is that native birds, insects, and other wildlife have evolved with native plant species and are able to use the fruits, nectars and habitat these plants and trees provide.

What folks are saying about us...

"I was thrilled at the results I got from Russ Henry. He's creative, and an impeccably professional landscaper. He knows gardening, and has always got a good idea for what to do with my garden. And not only that, but he's a whiz at creating beautiful patio spaces--his work and creativity allowed my family to enjoy our garden even more. Everyone who is looking for someone to help them figure out how to beautify and optimize their outdoor space should talk to Russ. You'll love the result. I certainly did!"

KEITH STACY

"When I inherited my mother's garden, I inherited Russ Henry too. What a lucky break for me! Russ understood exactly what needed to be done to maintain my mother's gorgeous garden. As I watched the garden through spring, into summer and then into fall, the garden changed and evolved. Thanks to Russ, there was always something new growing and blooming in different corners while the overall garden maintained a lush, almost bohemian feel. Russ was a patient, encouraging teacher whenever I elected to participate in caring for the garden. In fall, he gently put the garden to bed. This spring, I look forward to his return and with him will come a rewarding garden where it will be a constant pleasure to spend time."

NATALIE ELERTSON

"They installed a butterfly garden along my fence where it was difficult to mow. The new garden immediately began teeming with pollinators of all sorts including monarch butterflies. I absolutely love watching the butterflies and bumble bees dance around the garden while I sit on my back deck. The plants grew enough to fill in the garden in less than one season because of the amazing compost and soil management."

JULIE

“Thank you Minnehaha Falls Landscaping. Our experience could not be any better - the patio is AMAZING! We sit on the new patio every night and enjoy the landscaping, trees and shrubs. It really feels like a new room in the house. The best part was working with Carlos - he was very prompt, and we felt like he was a real expert. We do miss his smile.”
