Spring has arrived at Boone Gardiner and we have all kinds of great things to show you. We have hundreds of Kentucky grown trees available to replace trees that you may have lost from storm damage.
There are new truck loads of trees and plants arriving daily. We have a wonderful selection of Sustainable and Green Gardening Products such as: composters, rain barrels, herbicides, pesticides and much more.

I just spent all day Friday in my Board Training for the Kentucky Chapter of United States Green Building Council. (USGBC) Wow, what a day. I am so excited to be part of a group that is creating such major changes for the better not only in the built world but in all of humanity. This is the organization which has developed the LEED rating system, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, along with much more, and is truly a leading organization in the world of sustainability. Our Kentucky Chapter is only a few years old, but is growing by leaps and bounds, and we have much work to do. The time to change is now and we have to move quickly. Please visit these links for more info.
This chapter site discusses the new LEED Silver project, the Oldham County Library in LaGrange. Which Boone Gardiner did landscaping and site development in all sustainable ways.
The Amelanchier arborea (Common Serviceberry) is a favorite of migratory birds in Kentucky. The fruit has a similar taste to blueberies and provides an exceptional display of white flowers in the early spring.
