who am I? what's this all about?

these pages are being created by me (Ben Cobb) third generation Newton resident and organic gardener since sometime in the 70's.

pages have been created not so much as a solicitation for work for my family owned and run landscape company as a place to organize/share thoughts, experiences, experiments and to help me remember the things I have learned from courses at the Arnold Arboretum and the people I have worked with.

What we do:
Regular yard maintenance
Shrub restoration (don't rip it out make it work)
Adjusting the landscape for ease of maintenace
Advice on what to do and what not to do. (you do it)
Adding new plants.
