We choose to name our business Aspen Garden and Landscape, LLC.
Firstly, aspens are beautiful and remind us of being up north and in the mountains. But there is much more to it than that - aspens remind us of the qualities we aspire to.
Aspens are a sign of renewal - They are the first trees to repopulate wilderness areas after wildfires. This means a lot to us because we love the idea of working with homeowners to bring new life into their home landscapes.
Additionally, aspens exhibit continual growth - expanding from a single tree to form large colonies, each tree supporting one another. While they grow, aspens improve the soil and create suitable conditions for other species of trees - they are even useful in reclamation of polluted areas because they can pull contaminants out of the soil.
So, getting back to the question of why name a business after a tree - it's because aspens don't just make landscapes beautiful, they make landscapes better.
