Frequently Asked Questions

What do you do? / What services do you offer?

We maintain outdoor spaces from simple to elaborate. Garden Maintenance, Garden/Landscape Design, Installations, Renovations; full service garden and landscape care, tree planting, etc...

Can I see examples of your past work? 

We have posted several photos on the website for your reference so you can see just a few of the gardens we do.

Do you charge for garden consultations?

For the first visit, we charge $100 to travel to your home and walk through your property with you. Why? First and foremost, you get what you pay for. Have you ever asked a plumber, an electrician, a lawyer or a doctor to "just stop by" and give you their professional opinion and expertise about your assets or your health? Neither have we. We take you and your garden seriously and we know what we are doing. We are plantsmen, project managers, and dream fulfillers. We have achieved a wide range of project and property experience, plant knowledge, and level of genuine care about our clients.

What ideas do you have for our garden?  What is your process?

Our first step is to get to get to know you. The garden design must match you as much as possible. We talk with you so we can understand how you see your world, what restores you and makes you happy, what frames spaces around your home, and then we can begin working with you on a design.

What is the estimated cost?

It is good to have an ideal budget in mind and we work to maximize every area for greatest value to you.

Can we hire you for a one-time project?

Absolutely, we are typically flexible and able to take on a variety of one-time projects.

How much maintenance will it take to keep the garden looking good?

Every garden is different; we tailor your program to your and your garden's needs. Usually this means we offer weekly visits through the growing season, or every-other week service, or seasonal services 6 times per year (late Winter, Spring, Early Summer, mid-Summer, Early Fall, late Fall)

We want to manage a few areas ourselves, can we ask you to maintain certain parts of the landscape but not all?

We are here to serve you. We can be as full service or partnering as you would like. We can also coordinate other services such as lawn mowing, irrigation service, and landscape lighting.
