Consults are available.

Through the application of a holistic approach to landscape solutions we can recommend a style or theme that best suits your individual needs. 

Landscape Consultation Packages

Rather than just come by and lecture you, we will provide you with a useful tangible product:

·       A walk through and interactive discussion of your property

·       A 2nd walk through to explain the plan in person

·       A clear and concise written plan that you can use

·       The plan will include all details relevant to your landscape project

·       All packages include highly detailed evaluation and recommendation

·       Phone and email suppor

·       Add on services to facilitate the project


1.  Overall landscape evaluation: 

·       Best for those with a recently purchased home or those who would like to rejuvenate an existing landscape.  Includes an overall discussion about everything

·       If you need more detail we can identify that area and progress into a dialogue about that specific area

·       We'll have a look and see what can be done to quickly and inexpensively improve your curb appeal, and then put a plan in place to keep it that way

·       Each package is custom built for your individual landscape.  Complete property walk around and DIY tips.  Also, what is best to have a pro handle

·       Often as a start, the best course of action is to figure out how to utilize as much of the existing and get it looking good with a minimal amount of work.  Then go from there...


2.  Landscape planning and design consultation: 

·       Best for those who would like to replace or remodel and entire or part of a landscape

·       Learn the steps involved with properly evaluating your site conditions, selection of plant material, prep before work begins, installation & establishment procedures, and long term care

·       Interested in having a solid knowledge base about your lawn and what it takes to make it look good. 

·       Let me take you to turf school...


4.  Irrigation consultation:

·       50% of your municipal water bill goes to landscape irrigation. 

·       Your system should be evaluated regularly for function. 

·       Would you like to learn how you can conserve water?  Have recent repairs not done the trick?

·       Let us walk through the system with you so you know better how to irrigate efficiently.


5.  Wildlife and edible gardens and landscapes.
