I offer a range of services for novice and experienced gardeners from a one hour consultation to a property makeover project. I enjoy working with clients as they discover the joy of gardening and creating beautiful outdoor spaces. I can do an instant cookie-cutter garden if needed, but I prefer to share in a creative process whose outcome will give years of personal satisfaction. Flexibility is important when you’re working with nature, and plans often have to change somewhat in response to site, weather, or supply conditions. My rates are also flexible and the ultimate cost depends on the scale of work and how much of it I end up doing. The cost will be reasonable, maybe less than expected.

A one-time onsite design consultation providing design suggestions and sketch is approximately $125 to $150, which may be waived if significant further work is commissioned. A more detailed design requires additional work. The cost of working on site to implement the design is charged roughly by hours worked, at $30/hr. The client decides how much or how little they want to be involved in both the creative and practical process.
