Union Pier , Michigan

Set in Union Pier is a spectacular jewel: Warren Woods Park. This primeval forest resembles a natural cathedral with its towering beech trees. It has gorgeous hiking trails along the Galien River. In the spring, the wildflower pageant is a memorable sight. This Park is a wonderful spot from which to get ideas for trees you can grow yourself.

Planting a tree or nurturing an existing tree is the ultimate long-term investment in your garden. Trees can be useful in solving design problems (i.e. screening the neighbor's swimming pool) as well as creating a year-round, low maintenance architectural specimen and focal point. The Country Gardener designers will work with you to choose trees to create a woodland, to put in planters for drama, to enhance your garden border and to provide a piece of living sculpture.

The Michigan Dunes and surrounding terrain comprise a fragile eco-system. Using inspired design and incorporating carefully chosen native plants, The Country Gardener will help you to achieve a beautiful low-maintenance garden.
