Join us as we walk you through the process of transforming an image into a polished, optimized, and unique block for your library.

Opinion by Amanda Berry

The most jarring argument in this Washington Post article is that a natural garden design doesn’t have to be all native. I think a lot of landscape architects would nod their heads at every concept here until getting to that one. It’s been drilled into me since my first year of B.L.Arch. that regionally native plants can do no wrong, so I found this premise a little difficult to accept at first.
New Manufacturer Partner: Flomec
We’re thrilled to welcome Flomec to our ever-growing list of irrigation manufacturer partners. Flomec designs, engineers, and manufactures a variety of flowmeters and other products serving commercial and retail applications ranging from agriculture to engineering and HVAC across the globe.

Look for Flomec products such as the QS200 Ultrasonic flowmeter among our collection of irrigation equipment. The QS200 is available in five pipe sizes ranging from one to four inches. The QS200 has no moving parts, which helps keep installation easy and maintenance at a minimum.
