Home/Business Garden Consult

Initial Consultation Overview:
The initial consultation is a site visit and meeting with the client for the purpose of evaluating the growing space and any current garden uses of the space, identifying client’s ideas and goals for the garden space and coming up with a list of action steps to make those ideas and goals a reality.

 

How the Consultation May Be Used:
• Use as a onetime consultation where the client comes away with the information resources needed to move forward on their own.
• Use to develop a plan concept to carry out one or more specific projects.
• Alternately, other clients choose to have ongoing consultation services, seeking help with items such as garden planning, increasing productivity, making ongoing improvements or choosing appropriate materials for the garden.
