The design process begins with us viewing your outdoor space and brainstorming the ways in which the space might evolve. We will discuss your likes and dislikes as well as your practical demands of the space and other topics essential to create your unique, perfect out-door room.
We will then follow up our initial consultation with a broad outline of the design concept. Once a design is commissioned, we will return to document the space(s). Next, a design will be rendered by hand and incorporated into a detailed presentation explaining all elements of the design. Along with this design, an inclusive installation budget will be presented.
We offer various maintenance packages from one-time garden clean-outs, fall cleanups, spring spruce ups to ongoing maintenance services.
Maintenance services include pruning plants, small ornamental trees, and shrubs; fertilizing, irrigating, mulching beds; mowing, aerating, fertilizing, over-seeding, and mulching of lawns; raking and sweeping. Our team of trained professional gardeners will leave your space ready for you to go out into and enjoy.
