"I love my gardens. Knowing that Westview Farms will be here to do the 'work' that needs doing, when it needs doing, frees me to 'play' in my garden whenever I have the time." -Tanya Sheridan, Douglas, MI

"As I said to Kay recently, referring to maintaining my mixed border, 'I couldn't do it without you. You are so helpful in cleaning up in the spring and in maintaining later in the season. You accomplish so much in a short time. I really appreciate your knowledge and expertise'." -Thelma Brouwer, Holland, MI

"How does my garden grow? Beautifully, with Kay & Lee." -Fred Hoesli, Maintenance Client, Holland, MI

Holland, MI plant & landscape maintenance

"We love having conversations with [Kay and Lee] about plants and design ideas for our expanding gardens. Their love of what they do and attention to their customers brings so much happiness to so many people, especially our family. It gives us great pride to walk through our large perennial garden because of the lovely plants we purchase from Lee and Kay." -Terry & Darlene Bouwman, Holland, MI

"Along with getting the finest quality plants, they know their stuff, will forthrightly tell ya that 'there's no way that iris is going to grow in the sand under your picnic table.' And along with the finest in plants, and their breadth of knowledge, comes their genuine warmth. They spend time with you-chatting and laughing and asking 'What's up?' and commiserating over the early frost and sending you off with a plant the way a parent sends a kid off to first grade." -Julie & Jack Ridl

"Kay's workshop on 'Kaycrete' a.k.a. Hypertufa was solid and rewarding and the one on herbs was tastefully presented." -J.C.

We live in Grosse Pointe, on the east side of the state, but make a trip to the Holland area at least twice a year. No trip is ever complete without a visit to Westview Farms...we always seem to purchase several of Lee and Kay's plants to accompany us on our trip back home. Lee and Kay truly pride themselves in offering the highest quality in flora and the advice to keep us from making serious mistakes. Either they or we have to move closer to one another. -Lorie Johnson & Randall Cain

September 2005:

We at Westview Farms were pleased to recently find ourselves "in print". Westview Farms Perennials & Herbs is featured in a new book entitled In Search of Great Plants - The Insider's Guide to the Best Plants in the Midwest by lecturer and garden writer Betty Earl.

We met Ms. Earl, who is a Garden Scout and Field Editor for Better Homes and Gardens magazine last year when she heard about Westview Farms Perennials & Herbs and decided to visit us during her five state quest to locate "the best nurseries" and "the best plants" in the Midwest. We are very gratified and honored that she chose us as one of only twenty Michigan nurseries and garden centers selected for inclusion in her book.

To quote one review: "In Search of Great Plants is the definitive resource directory for where the best plants are found in the Midwest. This carefully researched book informs readers about the best places to find plants for the average gardener and the gardener in search of something special. Includes nurseries that are "hidden gems" . . . the type of nurseries that gardeners love to know about and share."

Ms. Earl states in her introduction that "The intention of this book is to offer you honest, informative and useful facts toward finding exemplary regional sources for whatever garden plants you are searching for . . . I love nurseries that seek out the unusual, strut the interesting, and embrace both the classic and the "newbie" ornamental plants with the same zestful passion."

In Search of Great Plants - The Insider's Guide to the Best Plants in the Midwest by Betty Earl is 312 pages, published by Cool Springs Press, ISBN 1591860946. It is available at, Barnes and Noble and local area bookstores.
