As you might have guessed from reading my blog; I am passionate about gardening. I have worked as a Horticulturist, Certified Arborist and Landscape Consultant for over 15 years in the Phoenix metropolitan area.
Whether you have just moved to the desert and have no idea what you are doing or maybe you are a long time resident and need some assistance with your existing landscape... I can help.
A consultation not only helps you to have to achieve an attractive garden, but can save you money by suggesting appropriate plants, placement and maintenance scheduling.
Most people over-prune, over-water and over-fertilize when their plants don't need it. In addition, they have plants that struggle to survive in our hot, arid climate and often waste money buying trees and plants in larger sizes from the nursery when smaller sizes will work just fine.
The focus of my consultations are to help people to use beautiful, low-maintenance plants that are adapted to this area and learn how to take care of them.
CONSULTATION SERVICES OFFERED:
BASIC CONSULTATION: I visit your landscape/garden and we do a walk through together talking about how your use your landscape what you your needs are: low-maintenance, color, more interest, etc. I will help you identify what plants you currently have and how to care for them. Verbal recommendations for what plants should be removed, pruning guidelines and new plant suggestions will be covered. Irrigation guidelines are also included. $135
Basic consultation fee + $75
YEARLY OR SEASONAL FOLLOW-UP VISIT:
I will re-visit your garden and make verbal suggestions for an 'tweaking' needed including any recommended changes in maintenance, plant replacement, etc. $100
