Mardi Gras Mambo!

The most important season of all in New Orleans is Mardi Gras, and if you want your garden to join the festivities, The Garden Gates Landscape Company can make that possible with green ivy, yellow pansies, and purple violas. Plant the spirited colors of Mardi Gras in your garden and help prepare your neighborhood for the coming madness.

There are many other times to have your garden looking fresh as well! Plants take the center stage in every landscape and The Garden Gates brings a distinct artistic touch combined with superior botanical knowledge to each and every project.

Since we understand that plant selection is a key component to landscaping, we are happy to provide advice. Our seasonal color rotation, provided two times a year, will bring vibrant blooms to your outdoor setting year-round. Once the plants are selected and placed in a creative arrangement, we ensure your garden has what it takes to flourish. We will remove dead annuals, replenish your soil, and add a new palette of colors to bring renewed vigor to your landscape. The Garden Gates can and will plant different species depending on the season.
