Creating a garden takes time. A mature garden takes between 3 and 5 years. Most create their garden space over a period of 2 to 3 years. It is important that you have a realistic expectation of how long it will take and how much it will cost you to create your haven.

I've divided up the parts of the process of making a beautiful garden into three stages. You can choose any one package or two or all three depending on what you want to do yourself and what you want done for you.

We will assess your desires for your garden and consult about ideas and options to make your dream a reality. We'll work through a garden planner and survey together and determine what you can do yourself and what will need to be done for you. Payment will be due at end of consultation.

We'll develop hardscape plans, measure your garden site, create a work schedule and sketch maps. Cost will be determined by the amount of time for research and creating the design. Half of the fee is due when we agree on terms and the rest will be due upon presentation of design plans and sketch maps.

We will purchase the plants, deliver the plants and place them where they should be installed to implement the garden plan and design.  Cost will be determined by the cost of plants and scope of the work.

Please contact me for further information and to discuss any part of making your garden.
