Garden Design

Garden design services are needed when a garden is in need of extensive renovation or the installation of new beds.

The process starts with a free initial consultation and site visit.  I will meet with you to understand what you would like to accomplish and the scope of the design effort.     I will give you a preliminary estimate of the number of hours required for the work.

If we agree to proceed, the next step is a site inventory and analysis  including  photo documentation and measurements.   I will take soil samples and if you have existing plant material that is reusable,  I will  inventory those plants.

From this information I will put together a preliminary design to be reviewed by you.  This is a collaborative, iterative process and I will gather your thoughts, desires and preferences throughout the process.

The resulting master plan will include a base map, soil analysis, planting plan, plant material lists, plant information sheets (bloom period, color of bloom, and sizes), plant price lists, and a maintenance plan.

Garden design services are $75 / hour.  Mileage charges may occur depending on the distance from Shelton, CT.
