Garden Design (and installation at most sites)
This option is for gardens in need of a design and/or installation,
whether you're starting with a blank canvas or in need of renovation.
I will meet with you and find out about your style, your needs and
wishes for your garden, and how you plan to use it. This will enable
me to design a garden that meets your needs and one that will be
enjoyable for years to come.
This option is for homeowners who already have an established
garden and may want additional plantings, maintenance, some
direction, or advice. I will visit your home, charging an hourly
garden consultation fee. At this time I would listen to your
concerns and wishes for your space, offer suggestions, and answer
your questions. What will you come away with? A list of suggestions
outlined in a way that may enable you to implement the changes
yourself, or an estimate on any tasks you want further
This option is for homeowners who enjoy working in their gardens
and may want to work hand in hand alongside a horticulturist in
order to enhance their space and learn while doing so. We can
help you start a herb or vegetable garden; a child's garden with a
place to plant, dig, and play; or a flower bed -- with front yard and
back yard assistance. Want to learn how and when to prune your shrubs,
how to sharpen your garden tools, or how to test and amend your soil?
Are you interested in starting a compost bin, or are you having issues
with an existing bin? Are you interested in vermicompost? Plants need
to be moved or divided? You can tell me what's important to you and
what you hope to gain or learn while working with a garden coach.
