Dewey Gardens is continuously aware of the relationship between a cultivated landscape and its surrounding environs. We are committed to maintaining the inherent character and feel of a place while seamlessly meeting the goals and expectations of our customers. At all times we are driven to promoting and enhancing the natural state of the land through organic landcare, utilizing the most current practices.
As winter is slowly making way for spring here on Cape Cod, now is a great time to start planning those landscape projects that you are considering for the upcoming season! Whether it’s installing a new perennial garden, bluestone walkway or water feature, now is the time to start the planning process. As Abraham Lincoln once said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
WHAT’S NEW IN 2015?! In addition to focusing on landscape design and installation services, Dewey Gardens is expanding it’s vegetable production this season with the construction of a 1,200 square ft. hoophouse! Construction began in Centerville in late in 2014 and will be completed by the end of March at which time, our first vegetable planting will commence. The house will extend our growing season substantially with a focus on cold season crops such as salad greens, spinach, kale and radishes with many more items to come as the season progresses. We anticipate working with local area Cape Cod markets, restaurants as well as our existing customer base and have received solid feedback from the community. We are truly excited to offer a healthy, local produce option to the surrounding community and will be utilizing our blog as well as our instagram account to provide updates on how things are going.
Additionally, we are excited to announce that Susan Dewey will once again be taking a more active role in the day to day operations at Dewey Gardens. She will be heading up our perennial garden division and will be providing landscape design assistance as well. If you’re considering revitalizing your perennial border or perhaps thinking about what your container planters are going to look like this season, Susan can provide you with the knowledge and expertise that comes with over 40 years of ‘hands in the dirt’ gardening experience.
Stay tuned and work up an appetite!
