Neighborhood Nursery is the offspring of Las Tunas Nursery and The Rainbow Gardens, a retail plant nursery and award winning landscape construction company with over 20 years of experience. Started by Frank Tremmel, the companies combined services include retail and wholesale plant sales, landscape and irrigation installation and landscape design. We are also experienced in pond supplies and installation, low voltage lighting, and hardscapes.
Frank began his career in horticulture when he began mowing grass for his parents neighbors. The handles of the lawnmower were still over his head for that first year. Since that time he remained an avid learner and is active in gaining gardening information for plants, easy maintenance techniques and dispelling old gardening myths. Frank is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University college of Agriculture with a degree in Animal Science. Studies included agronomy, plant science, and business management. He is licensed as both a nurseryman and landscape contractor. He holds Certified Landscape Technician (CLT) certificates in Landscape Maintenance and Irrigation, one of the few individuals in the country to hold two certifications. He also is a certified water auditor. Frank is the recipient of the Ben Slade Memorial Award from the California State Contractors Association. This is the highest honor available representing the best maintenance project in California.
While working in Research and Development for the CIBA-Geigy Corporation, now Novartus, Frank led classes for Agricultural Extension offices. Topics included disease and insect control in farm crops and livestock while minimizing impact to the environment. His experience in weed control in agricultural and ornamental crops began in this area. In depth analysis of fertilization programs and water management were, and still are, a vital part of the plant health programs.
Frank has also done several manufacturer testimonials. Companies such as Gravely and Pond Supplies have used his experience using their equipment to show quality and affordability in proper equipment use. Combine his lifetime of experience in maintaining beautiful commercial and residential properties, his education and his construction experience in Southern California, you get a design/builder with creativity, efficiency and attention to detail.
