Consultation Inquiries

"I could not be more pleased with the work that Alan's company has done in completely transforming the backyard of my town home from an overgrown, plant-filled, unusable space -- to two separate levels of paved patios below my deck -- one level with a beautiful fire pit and the second with a lovely water feature that feels zen-like. Where before we only looked down at the plants, now we are drawn down there -- and it feels wonderful to have taken a smallish backyard area and expanded so that it is not only usable, but also just makes you want to go down and sit and enjoy! Alan's team (led by Hugo and Ken) could not have been more professional. They were always on time, very courteous, did a thorough clean-up at the end of each day, and I'll even say, artists in their own right. Ken's work in building the fire pit was detailed and finished perfectly. He worked on it like it was his own... I couldn't be more happy with the finished result -- it FAR exceeds my expectations!!! To Alan and his team, a big thank you!" Coby S. (Fall 2015)"

Help. I need somebody. Not just anybody.

We offer two types of on site meetings: Design meetings and Garden Coaching Consultations. Design meetings are for when you have a project that needs a proposal or for folks that want to invest in a landscape design. Garden coaching is different. In some cases, you might not need an estimate for an overall landscape project, but only a quick consultation. You may be a homeowner that wants to landscape their own yard, but needs a little guidance. Maybe you only need to know the kind of plants that you have on your property. What kind of rhody is that? How do I prune that big ugly thing? When do I fertilize? What should I put over there to screen Mabel’s shower window? For a moderate charge, one of our horticultural professionals can come and spend an hour with you at your home. Your consultation will include a comprehensive follow-up email that lists the plants and items discussed and appropriate measures for correction and care, a gift certificate to the nursery and sometimes a plan sketch. Whether you need do-it-yourself design help for different areas in your yard, suggestions on renovation, identification of existing trees & shrubs or pruning-how-to's, our professional horticultural staff can help. Feel free to call or email our office for details and to set-up an appointment.

As always, if you have an outdoor construction project or would like to discuss landscape plans or have an estimate for project installation services, contact our office and ask for an appointment at your home with one of our design staff for a Landscape Design meeting.
