Hiring a Professional


A Back Yard Wildlife Habitat

Creating a garden can be a substantial investment
in both time and money. 

For the novice it can also be a source of frustration when the desired results are not achieved after such an investment. A successful garden design is dependent on selecting the right plants or combination of plants for their location, the health of the soil, proper infrastructure, and attention to the natural features of the garden such as microclimates. Selecting the wrong plants, inadequate infrastructure or soil preparation, and not paying attention to details all too often results in higher maintenance, more pest and disease problems, inefficient use of water, and increased plant failure.

Hiring a professional garden designer means hiring practical experience and a wealth of horticultural knowledge so that the greatest amount of success and reward can be achieved.
