These helpful books help to inform and inspire all the work we do, and they will inspire you too. Learn about anything from veggie gardening basics to creating an edible forest or a rain garden.
What do I receive?
All designs and supporting information are provided in PDF format.
Recommendations of plant varieties that thrive in your landscape.
Ideas for growing a wide variety of plants in low-maintenance ways.
Guidelines for establishment and management.
Locations to purchase plants and acquire inexpensive materials.
What will I learn?
One-on-one education is the true value we provide. We are passionate about helping you understand the nature of your landscape and how each plant and feature can benefit you and our environment.
During the entire process, we are very open about our inspiration and research, sharing every bit of knowledge that is useful. This is an educational endeavor as much as it is a design process and we want you to come away feeling knowledgeable, confident and inspired.
What about my budget?
We keep establishment costs low and stay within your budget by...
Recommending the use of existing and inexpensive materials.
Working with the natural characteristics of your landscape.
Creatively using plants—rather than hardscape—to define outdoor spaces.
Emulating properties of self-maintaining ecosystems to reduce mowing, watering and other upkeep.
What if I'm not quite ready?
We can help you over time, gradually refining and assisting with your design and establishment success.
You could begin with an Abundance of Ideas service to learn about vast possibilities.
After considering the possibilities, we could return for a follow-up visit and create a Concept Design for your entire landscape.
Once you decide which areas have the highest priorities, we could provide an Eco-Garden Bed design or Complete Master Plan for those areas.
We will happily customize services to help you gain confidence and learn at a comfortable pace.
