Love & Carrots offers a variety of design options incorporating perennials, vegetables, shrubs, and trees to make your edible landscape both beautiful and productive.  From trellises, to pergolas, to raised beds,  to pathways, and more, Love & Carrots will work with you to design the garden you’ve been dreaming about!


To begin, we need to determine your starting point –

Are you a garden novice looking for a a brand new garden-scape and all the help you can get?  Are you a seasoned grower looking for in-depth help troubleshooting issues or creating a dense, larger-scale Master Plan?  Once you help us identify your starting point, we can schedule an appointment for our experts to meet with you and your space!  To schedule an appointment and to help us determine your needs please visit our appointment request page.

Once we’ve scheduled your appointment, we come to see your existing or proposed garden-site, take area measurements, procure a soil sample if applicable, site photographs, measure sunlight availability, factor in slope and drainage and more.  Additionally, we chat with you about your visions and garden-aspirations, what you’d like to learn, parameters or restrictions you know of – most importantly– what you want to grow and eat!  From trellises, to pergolas, to raised beds,  to pathways, and more, Love & Carrots will work with you to design the garden you’ve been dreaming about.

Narrow Garden- AfterAfter our visit, working from all of these inputs, we will create and share with you:

– A Proposal complete with a Plant Palate, highlighting the flowers, shrubs, vegetables, and even trees that we’ve discussed and recommend

–A line by line Estimate denoting material input costs and labor cost projections specific to your site

– A Custom Design (at your request), represented below, laying out the orientation of our plant proposals, any structural components, and identifying specific plant recommendations and the overall landscape and design of the envisioned garden-scape.

All of our gardens incorporate herbs, companion plants, nutrient cycling, and plan for multiple plantings throughout the Growing Season.
