We have exciting news! We were featured in the newest season of Queer Eye on Netflix along with our sister company, Garden Seventeen! You can catch us on season 6 episode 6 titled “Community Allied”. Garden Seventeen provided plants, pots, and fountains, while our team did all the hard work in transforming Dr. Jereka Thomas’s space. This yard transformation was the largest in Queer Eye history, and we are so thrilled to have been a part of pulling it off! It was great meeting and working with Bobby and the rest of the designers and production team. Let us know what you think of Dr. Jereka Thomas’s transformation!Below, we have some behind the scenes shots from the hero's home, as well as some screen captures from the episode!Read More »Native Edge on Queer Eye Season 6
Wildflowers are one of nature’s most exuberant participants. Producing entire fields of seasonal color, their explosive entrances mark one of the most lovely - and in Texas the toughest - times of year. Wildflowers are a perfect illustration of the Texas landscape: it’s hot, we're here, and we will be back. We have the privilege of witnessing them carpet the forgotten places, blanketing the empty zones we pass on obligatory commutes - another call from nature to remain grateful even when things are temporary. They remind of us of color, the season, and how to enjoy the little things.Color has the distinct ability to impact our mood - to lift our spirits, soothe, energize or welcome. Little pockets of vibrancy in your landscape can enrich a space, without overpowering it. The Texas Department of Transportation knows this; every year they have an annual program that buys and sows over 30,000 POUNDS of wildflower seed across our Texas highways.Who doesn’t love a field blazing full of Indian Paintbrushes, winking Blackfoot Daisies, elegant stalks of Purple Coneflower, or the tender welcome of pink Buttercups? These tiny clusters of color withstand the wind, the rain and the heat and they make all the difference for drivers who see their prolific blooms. You can enjoy the same seasonal impact at your home!A favorite for many pollinators, saving a space in your landscape for wildflowers can also bring very pretty guests to your doorstep. Spread the love and bring wildflowers into your landscape! They are usually grown from seed, but with options in both annuals and perennials you can create a colorful space that can change and grow over the years. Explore local wildflower options and have fun selecting your own bursts of color!Buy local wildflower seed and when your flowers bloom, wish them well!References: Potter, Anna. The Flower Fix.

I truly love the art of gift giving, whether it’s a celebration, a random day of the week, a passing thought turned into a trinket - or an even a bashful apology wrapped in satin ribbon. Gifts spread joy. When it comes to floral surprises (because let’s be honest - even when customary, flowers are always a surprise) here are a couple of my favorite tips:
Inspire Playfulness:Table arrangements are perfect for a family home, a filled vase can spark curiosity, imagination and creativity. The perfect antidote to a chilly winter, a floral arrangement can spread seasonal cheer. Allow yourself creative freedom, loose expressive designs are just as fun as organized ones. To your left, we have soft cream-colored hydrangeas, which mean "perseverance, understanding, and interconnectedness", a wonderful theme for a martini-mixer we were invited to garnish with plant decor. Remind others of joy with festive exuberance!Meaningful Color: Include a ‘Meaning Card’. Not everyone speaks the language of flowers, and certainly no one knows them all. Here for example, to your right we see Anthuriums - which mean "hardworking, hospitality, 'think of me', and welcome". A wonderful display for our event with Equality Texas. A quick note about what the flower is, and the meaning you've placed behind it for that particular occasion, turns a temporary gift into an immediate, intimate experience. You thought of them, show them how.In celebration of love, friendship and Valentine's Day,what does a bouquet mean to you?References: Potter, Anna. The Flower Fix.
