“Wood is universally beautiful to man. It is the most humanly intimate of all materials. ” Frank Lloyd Wright

The Montgomery Botanical Gardens at Oak Park loves our trees. It has been two years, since one of our beautiful oak trees was blown over in a storm similar to the one we had last night. We thought you would enjoy some before and after pictures.

Come visit us and sit on one of our beautiful custom benches. Better yet sponsor one of your own.

Azaleas, Azaleas and more Azaleas

Last year we pulled up some azaleas at the Montgomery Botanical Gardens at Oak Park because they were covered in weeds and vines. With the help of the city of Montgomery, we rooted them for new plants.

We planted close to 100 of these new azalea plants this winter with the help of the Capital City Master Gardeners. These azaleas are now beginning to bloom. Come for a visit.
