For over 40 years, Chris Vanston has been dedicated to the creation and preservation of unique and inviting horticultural settings.
His love of beauty has resulted in the development of decades of historical landscapes and pondscapes. His love of sculptural forms moved him to design and maintain a 3/4 mile-long maze, the centerpiece of a destination garden. His love of trees was the impetus for his move from Florida to Louisiana, where he was contracted to preserve Live Oak trees damaged after one of the South's most devastating hurricanes. As an arboreal consultant for KTHV 11, he is called upon for his analyses of the health of trees throughout the area.

Vanston Horticulture has worked for years to bring these colorful specimens to their full potential.
