At Gardening by Design you have many services to choose from:

Design and Coach If you would like to construct your own garden, but you don't know how to begin, we will guide you, first with a consultation and then with follow-up visits as you need them.

Concept Plan
We prepare a sketch plan of your garden with the recommended placement of plants and a plant list.

Design of Beds and Patios
We prepare a detailed plan of your garden with exact plant placements, plant list with quantities and prices.

Full Garden Makeover
A complete garden design plan cultivates your vision. You can make it happen all at once, or in selective phases. A unified design allows you to think of your yard as a complete resource that supports your lifestyle and personality. Plan for a new entry, a patio, stonework, a water feature, irrigation, special garden "rooms", play areas for kids, and paths that connect them all. Support your new look with garden furniture, a new shed, trellises, and lighting. The final design will reflect your preferences and incorporate your ideas.

Selection, Installation, Supervision
We help you select the right contractor for every job and supervise their work in keeping with an approved design. We install the garden at a pace that suits your budget and navigate the complex market of area resources and help source the right materials.

Year-Round Support Team
On call and by contract, we provide three-season care: soil improvement, mulching, pruning, patio and garden pot replacements, the planting and replacement of annuals, bulbs, perennials, and garden clean-up in keeping with your needs.
