Our maintenance services offer a reliable way for you to keep your garden looking great while you are out of town. We also offer maintenance options for seasonal container gardens that we plant on site.

We will water, deadhead and maintain your garden and containers at a discounted rate, with daily and weekly visit options.

Garden consultations offer people a way to get ideas, make plans, and identify the best plan, pots, flowers and food for their space. From starting a new garden project to maintaining an established garden, we can offer suggestions on how you can improve your garden, or make changes, and how you can manage it throughout the seasons.

Sorry, we are not a landscaping company!

We do not plant large shrubs or trees, or provide lawn care services.

We are happy help you set up tree/shrub planting through local greenhouses and/or work with your landscaping company, tree trimmers and/or lawn care providers.


We Are Pet Friendly

If you have pets, please notify us of any special instructions as it pertains to your pets safety while we work.

Please let us know if you have any special accommodations for your pets in your outdoor areas, including gates, doors, or electric fencing that we should be mindful of while working on your property.


Let’s create an amazing garden together!

We can explain what services are right for you during a FREE consultation and customize our services based on your specific needs!
