The initial consultation is a free one-time site visit with the client to evaluate the space and identify the client’s ideas and goals for the garden. Following that, we can develop a plan, make ongoing improvements or choose plants and other elements to enhance your outdoor space. We identify the plants in your garden, diagnose diseases, pests or problems. We can also suggest design ideas to improve the garden, making it less labour intensive and more user friendly.
Functional Ornamental Gardens
- Garden Restoration Overgrown and overwhelmed? We uncover treasures and rejuvenate your garden, restoring and enhancing its natural beauty and function.

- Garden Maintenance Biweekly, monthly, twice a year or at your request, we weed, fertilize, prune, edge, line trim, fall leaf removal and more.
- Organic and local Emphasis Our plant material is locally sourced and grown. We choose suitable plants for your specific micro-climate and garden.

“Oh, my garden is so lovely. Your team is just the sunniest friendliest bunch. And the warm way they interact with each other makes them pleasant to have around. You’ve got a good thing going, dear Jean.”

“I am loving my new, expanded, fresh gardens! The back looks twice as big and I can already see the smiling faces on the rhodos and camellia now that they can see the sky and feel the air. Your crew has done a fantastic job and I am so excited to begin the fun part of gardening now that the hard part is done. It is such a joy to now be able to enjoy them and to feel such peace when I am in my yard.”
