Garden Setup Service:
Our garden setup service includes delivery, setup, and materials for your edible garden along with the initial round of soil / plants you have chosen. In addition, we will provide you with our vegetable growing guide which gives you lots of information on how to best take care of your plants. This is best suited for our smaller footprint gardens and raised beds with a limited varieties of vegetables to be planted. If a wide range of plants are selected, multiple rounds of planting may be required. Basic service gardens are setup starting in April and continue throughout the outdoor growing season.
Garden maintenance gives you peace of mind that your garden will be tended to in a professional manner, maximizing yields from your garden, keeping the weeds at bay, and reducing damage from harmful insects. We provide you with flexibility if you are out of town or want an extra hand to help manage your garden. This can include watering, weeding, pruning, harvesting, and general maintenance of the garden. We’ll design a program that fits in with your needs so you can enjoy the freshest veggies right from your yard. In-garden support is provided at $30 per hour and can be booked on an ad-hoc basis or as a 5, 20, or 50 hour combo package that can be divided into 1 hour sessions. For more details or to order online, visit our our online store.
Each maintenance package is custom tailored to your specific needs and schedule. We are happy to work with you to create and maintain the most productive urban vegetable garden! The amount of maintenance your garden will require varies based on garden size, garden type (ex. raised beds, containers, or in-ground), types of plants, and soil conditions. We’re happy to help you with an estimate and to work with you to ensure your garden gets properly maintained, whether it is regular maintenance over the entire growing season, or if you need a temporary helping hand while away on vacation.
Other services can be performed upon request. Contact us for details.
