Our designs are customized to fit our clients needs and wants. Complete designs include the customized landscape design and construction documents, such as an irrigation plan. These designs will include everything to implement the project. Simpler plans may be a planting plan only or a design only.

A consultation can help generate ideas. Generally, a consultation is a one-on-one meeting to discuss and answer whatever garden issues the client has.

Landscape Maintenance
A Passion for Gardens offers complete maintenance or any arrangement to fit your needs. We often find a client’s mow and blow gardening service is not capable of the fine gardening offered by a professional fine gardener. The two together can keep the garden looking its best.

Planted pots can accent an entry way, terrace, patio, or serve as a focal point. We specialize in seasonal planting of containers.
