Garden Consultation Sessions
Want to learn how to take better care of your plants? Want to make better use of your landscape? Are you interested in growing food, or providing habitat for pollinators? I can offer advice, planning and research help.
Contact me with your goal, and we can together devise a plan for you to improve your gardening experience.
Photos of your landscape and some individual plants will be necessary, as well as your budget and time investment hopes for your ideas.
Sample goals include:
Improving the vitality of existing plants. Soil conditions, watering schedules and sun/shade balance can all be adjusted to improve a plant's prospects.
Researching plant choices for drought tolerance, shade tolerance, and attracting pollinators.
Improving the shape of shrubs or trees. Pruning techniques and timing are crucial for making the best of your landscape.
Training & Qualifications
20 years home gardening and tree care. Access to family and friends with 50+ years experience with care and identification of ornamental plants.
My unofficial family business is gardening. Family and friends look to my Dad and I for plant care advice, plant identification and general yard work. I'm adept at sourcing plants cost effectively, tailoring choices to the conditions in a given space, and improving soil quality. I have fewer resources and insight for indoor plant care, but can point you in better directions.
