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 Consult
A kitchen garden is a small vegetable garden, usually in raised beds, that provides fresh herbs, veggies, and fruits for the home gardener.
$150 includes sun exposure analysis, garden placement options, garden design inspiration, simple garden design sketch (up to 300 square feet), and an installation quote.
A kitchen garden is great for gardeners of all experience levels, people who want to supplement their cooking with fresh, homegrown herbs and veggies, and wanna be gardeners with busy schedules who aren't able to maintain larger vegetable gardens.
Great for people who have an existing garden and need help troubleshooting existing issues or upping their gardening game.
$150 can include sun exposure analysis, soil amendment recommendations, plant recommendations, and a plan on how to address any issues.
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 and purchase within 30 days of the consultation.
Garden Designs and Installation
Full service installation includes custom raised cedar beds built by a local carpenter, custom soil and compost blend, in bed irrigation, a one time planting, and labor.
Installation prices generally start around $1,500 and can vary significantly based upon garden size.
DIY Kitchen Garden Plan
Starts at $325 and varies depending on the size of the project. DIY Design Package includes the following:
- Garden design
- Plant Map: 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.
- General Materials List
Once your garden is designed and installed we can set up a few coaching or maintenance sessions to help get you growing successfully.
