Of course we need you to shop at our site. Right now we're offering a selection of high quality garden and weed management tools, and also great books on native plants, gardening for wildlife and more. Our goal at the moment is to offer books and tools that we regularly recommend our clients and people who attend my talks. This way you can find all the good stuff you need all in one place! A few of my favorites are:
- Kane County Wild Plants and Natural Areas (the best field guide for the Midwest!)
- Bringing Nature HomeIncredibly inspiring, every home-owner should read!
- Attracting Native Pollinators So many fascinating things to learn about beneficial insects.
- The Nisaku Hori Hori (the best weeding/planting tool in the history of Earth!)
- Lowe Series 8 Pruners (top quality hand clippers)
- Hickok Loppers (super-durable, made in the USA!)
So here's the part where we need your help. We need to know: what sustainable gardening/landscaping products do you want?
So far our tool selection focuses on high-quality items that you won't have to throw away... most will, in fact, last you a life time. What other tools and supplies would you like to buy? Are there things that its hard to find a good source for, or that you're always recommending to friends?
The books we offer are all very informative about native plants, weed control, landscaping with natives and for wildlife. Would you like to see more plant and animal identification books offered? More inspirational books from authors like E. O. Wilson or Michael Pollen? What about books on cultivating fruits trees and vines or organic vegetable gardening? What is your favorite book that teaches and inspires you in the garden?
Would you like to buy native plants online? Prairie seed mixes? Garden veggie seeds or starters?
