Educate

Consultation services:

We provide the necessary knowledge and resources for renovation projects and finding solutions to problem areas in your landscape. Topics often discussed in consultations and garden coaching are: site and soil analysis, plant health assessment, recommendations for weed and pest infestations, pruning suggestions and training, plant identification and basic botany, transplanting and other gardening tips, general design ideas, how plants and insects interact, and overall property management suggestions and plans/task list creation for the do-it-yourselfer. This service is charged by the hour, with travel time included one way to your site.
