It's good to be green
Verde Valley residents have a new one-stop center in West Sedona for all their gardening and landscaping needs -- GreenWorks Plaza. Five companies have combined resources and come together in one garden campus to deliver top-notch service and expert advise.
"We have access to a virtually infinite supply of material," Nursery Source Owner Tony Morrone said. "Our goal is to offer excellent plant material for extremely competitive prices."
Nursery Source offers high quality plants and vast horticulture knowledge.
Along with Nursery Source, GreenWorks Plaza includes Bamboo 4 U, Land Art Works, RainDance WaterWorks and Take it Outdoors.
"This unique outdoor-lovers shopping paradise is made up of a team of over 25 professionals with over 80 years experience," Consultant Michael Firewalker said.
Some of these professionals include Jim Law (Land Art Works), who is going to be featured on Home and Garden Television's prime-time reality show "Landscapers' Challenge," and Tyler Fisher (Bamboo 4 U), who has recently returned from India and brought back knowledge of world-class sculptures.
"We have the best hand-carved granite and marble sculptures in the state and possible the U.S.," Fisher said.
Bamboo 4 U offers a wide range of landscaping accessories including pottery, bamboo privacy hedges, houseplants, statues and sculptures for indoor and outdoor areas.
"They also have a new product line called Syn-Lawn, a great alternative to live lawns for those who want lawn grass without having to mow or water," Firewalker said.
Law has 16 years of landscaping experience and has received many awards for excellence in unique design. Law's expertise caught Hollywood's attention as he has also helped create the movie set for Doc Hollywood.
Other members of the GreenWorks team include Wesley Coate and William Geurts.
Coate (RainDance WaterWorks) provides wholesale landscape materials such as irrigation systems, pond supplies, lighting and energy-saving systems for contractors, developers and other businesses.
Geurts (Take it Outdoors) designs water features with handpicked stones. His ponds were featured in the Sedona Pond Tour. Manager Tracy Geurts said Take it Outdoors offers "water features no one else has."
GreenWorks Plaza is located at 2575 W. Hwy 89A, across from Circle K in West Sedona. For more information call 282-2600
