  • Grow larger amounts of food with less maintenance than conventional gardens. Food can include vegetables, herbs, fruits, nuts, and berries.
  • Attract and support preferred birds, butterflies, or other wildlife.
  • Implement a bed efficiently and correctly so you can enjoy its benefits rather than having to recreate it again later.
  • Increase the beauty and value of unused or unsightly areas.

Process

Eco-Garden Bed DesignWe will visit your landscape twice: once to gather information and a second time to review and refine the design.

Initial Visit

  • An ecological designer visits you at your landscape for approximately 2 hours.
  • During the first half of the consultation, we walk your landscape with you listening carefully to your goals, vision, ideas, and budget.
  • A rough layout of the garden bed will be created based upon your preferences and the characteristics of the landscape.
  • Potential plant species and their characteristics will be presented to help you understand how each plant could benefit you and your garden.

Research

  • Specific plant varieties will be researched and selected based upon your goals and preferences.
  • Plants will be researched and placed to create harmonious, beautiful and self-supporting groupings.

Follow Up Visit

  • The bed will be precisely laid out in the landscape making adjustments based upon your feedback.
  • The plant selections and placements will be reviewed so you fully understand the rationale behind the design.
  • The implementation plan will be reviewed and refined.
