Professional advice on your new landscape

The moving truck is gone, but you’re long from settled. And now you’re faced with a yard too! Even avid gardeners can be overwhelmed.The previous owners might have left issues that should be addressed quickly. Neighbors will tell you what they want you to do. Garden centers will suggest plants they need to sell. Installers will recommend work you may not need. Let me help you sort through these and other issues.

This consultation puts YOU and YOUR PROPERTY NEEDS first with an objective to identify practical, low cost approaches, and prioritized solutions.
