Municipalities are now promoting Fusion Gardening as a way to solve many landscape-related challenges at one time. It incorporates rain-water handling, drought-tolerance and gardening with native plants to enhance biodiversity. Although folks perceive eco-friendly landscaping to be less beautiful, NOTHING, in terms of solution-gardening, needs to look like a sacrifice. It’s all an opportunity to tap into the functional uses of plants….in a beautiful way.
Over the last 10 years, Mike Prong of Fern Ridge Eco Landscaping Inc. has become a dedicated, enthusiastic and forward-thinking advocate of green practices in the landscape industry. He has had an interest in landscaping ever since he was a young boy growing up just outside London in Aylmer, Ontario which then led to his enrollment in Fanshawe College’s Landscape Design program in the fall of 2009 and his completion of Mohawk College’s Horticultural Apprenticeship Program in 2013. With hands on industry experience and a broad knowledge of horticulture, Mike has the ability to turn even the most basic of landscapes into an eco-friendly oasis.
