>> Now my company is working on the conversion of "WEEDS to WILDFLOWERS" on the San Francisco Peninsula on private properties of one acre or more. Call and ask about this program.

If you mow weeds every year in parts of your yards, there might be native plants that still exist on your property, that could take the place of those weeds.

Call or email for a Vegetation Survey of your property, to find the hidden native plants on your property, that could take the place of the weeds.

See the two-acre new Poppy Project at the corner of Anacapa and Viscaino in Los Altos Hills at Kim Scott and Raj Reddy's yards, where the weeds were converted to wildflowers.

Craig Dremann worked on the original Poppy Project at Astradero Preserve from 2012 to 2016 to replant wildflowers on the hillside of the Palo Alto city-owned open space preserve. The project was located next to the parking lot, and it is the first time that flowers had bloomed in 150 years at that spot.

This project was 100% funded by donations by businesses, individuals and as memorials for friends and family members. The planted flowers bloomed for six weeks from April to May, and lasted a lot longer than cut flowers from a florist.
