Garden Consultation

When you are just not sure how, or what to do, or even where to start, or you don’t have the time or energy we can help.

Whether it’s a new garden design to fulfill that vision of your dream garden or a much needed renovation of an existing garden that needs attention, but… where to begin?

Maybe you just need help identifying the plants in your garden and their care, or reasons why your plants are declining in health, or maybe why random plants keep popping up and you don’t know what they are, and simply can’t keep up with it all, that can be overwhelming to say the least.

With our experience and knowledge we can help you with step by step solutions, to putting it all together and address all your concerns.

Garden Renovation

As our gardens mature, they require another look… really.

Plants that have once looked aesthetically pleasing, have now out grown their place in the garden, and now it’s time to rethink the structure of the garden. Do existing plants need a new home within the garden? Or a new variety within it’s place. By simply adding fresh new complementary plants the garden can have new life breathed into it.

Consider how the garden design flows, and how it makes you feel.

Organic Gardening

In Nature everything goes back into the soil.

By providing the habitat for soil microorganisms to breed, where they can predigest and transform the organic matter and minerals into substances, plants then, can easily digest this nutrient rich matter we call compost.

Compost improves soil structure, water absorption and re-tension, suppresses weeds, adds nutrients, prevents compaction and erosion, contains predators of disease causing organisms, repairs chemically damaged soils, keeps soil cool in the summer, adds aesthetic value due to healthier plants.
