What to Expect
During your garden consult we will sit down together and discuss your personal garden goals, plant preferences, garden vision, and how to make all of these things work with your life and style.
I will evaluate sun exposure and if necessary I will help you scope out an appropriate garden location in your yard and we will discuss a few design options.
If you have an existing garden we will discuss any issues you have had in the past. I will review your garden space and evaluate sun exposure to maximize your plant layout. We will also discuss crop rotations and soil health.
Kitchen Garden Consults
A kitchen garden is a vegetable garden, usually in raised beds, that provides fresh herbs, veggies, and fruits for the home gardener. $75
Edible Landscaping Consult
Edible landscaping uses edibles, native plant species, and pollinator friendly plants in a traditional landscape setting. Edible landscapes are both functional and beautiful. $95
After the consultation you can choose to move forward with a garden design and plan package and DIY-it, or you can choose to have Seed Babies install your garden for you.
The consultation fee will be credited towards garden installation or maintenance if you decide to move forward with one of these services.
Designs start at $255 and pricing may vary depending on the size and scope of the project. Design packages include the following:
- Garden design
- Plant layout: using the plants you chose as well as additional recommendations from me. I place plants using companion planting techniques, and taking into consideration sun exposure, ease of care, etc.
- Planting schedule: this gives you date ranges of optimal planting times and harvesting times and will help you time out your plantings.
- Plant list: includes number of plants and you’ll need for each variety and also outlines spacing guidelines for each plant and row.
- Plant notes: I will include any plant specific notes such as variety recommendations, any plant supports needed, or other special plant needs.
- Materials and supplies suggestions
If you prefer for Seed Babies to complete your garden installation we will discuss dates and finalize details accordingly. Prices vary for installation packages.
In addition we can set up a few coaching sessions to help get you growing successfully.
