First Blog Post

I would like to introduce you to several new things on our website,

First of all, I hope you like the new look and organization. A big thanks to Spectrum Net Design for all the work they have put into both hosting and rebuilding of our primary marketing tool.  We love it! (If you think they could help you, check them out at They are great people to work with).

Secondly, I am excited to begin our new blog. I hope to be posting timely and interesting dunegrass, gardening, and landscaping  information every other week to get started. I would like this to be an interactive tool that you feel free to ask questions and keep as a reference for the different challenges you face in your particular dune/yard/garden situation. It is no surprise to those of you that know me well that I consider myself a wild-eyed organic gardener with about 30 years experience seeking solutions for vegetable, small fruit and orchard gardening. That fact along with my erosion control and shoreline work will hopefully provide an interesting mix for our readers.

Finally, we have been able to collect all of the stories and poems that I have written to date on the website in one place. They are meditations that reflect on the many amazing facets of God’s creation found in the unique ecosystems the Great Lakes. I hope you find them interesting, informative and inspirational.

Talk to you soon,
The Duneman
