The secret to less complaints and happier customers?

Healthier plants and healthier turf. Our custom formulas are created to provide the ideal ingredients in the ideal balance for your unique soil and plant types, so your plants grow stronger, longer. 

We know there's no room for dead or dull plants when you're designing one-of-a-kind experiences for your clients. This is why it's so important to us to custom agronomically-correct plant food: it reduces water requirements, minimizes weeds, and lessons disease and insect damage, so you can keep your clients happy without making extra work for yourself.

What's more beautiful than seasonal color plants showing their vibrant colors, perennials that don't look tired and faded, and trees, shrubs ands turf that are dense and lush green?

Nothing! It's a picture perfect landscape.

We can help you achieve a picture perfect landscape for your client by engaging with you in the landscape challenges you have. As fertilizer advisors, we don't sit behind a desk selling you products you may not need.

We prefer "on-site" visits to discuss any issues that are hindering your plants or turfs performance. Our landscape expert will bring innovative solutions to get you back on track quickly.



    As they say, you have less than 30 seconds to make a first impression.

    Any time you have large swaths of color in a landscape setting, heads will turn. When making such a statement we understand every bloom matters.

    Our ColorStar will bring your color definition into high definition. As we all know, color plants can be your friend one day and your enemy the next.

    After years of listening to our customers ongoing issues with color plants, we rolled up our sleeves and developed ColorStar Plus, the first color plant food on the market containing fungicide.

    We know a good start increases the longevity of the plant.
