For your Home...
The process starts with a consultation. Our garden expert meets with you at your home to discuss your goals, past gardening experience, and vision for your future garden. We collect all the information we need to create the proposal and estimate for your garden.
If requested, we can create a drawn-to-scale graphic to help you visualize your proposal. All of our gardens incorporate herbs, companion plants, nutrient cycling, and best practice for optimizing harvest. We are happy to collaborate with your Landscape Architect.
After you agree to our garden estimate, our team of experience garden builders will make your design a reality. All our installations come with our custom organic soil mix and a planting of organic vegetable transplants and seeds from our greenhouse.
Because every space is unique, prices vary widely depending on the garden size, materials & labor needs. We will always share a line by line Estimate of any garden work Proposals for you to review. 100% of Consultation fees and 50% of Design costs are credited towards installation work.
Have a particular price point in mind? Let us know and we will be happy to work with you to adjust the Estimate accordingly in order to balance budget, vision and what is ecologically achievable.
