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.
