Christine offers a hands-on approach.
On-site consultations include a visit to your property to assess and advise you on the best course of action for your garden.
Great for established gardeners and beginners!
What does your dream garden look like?
Garden design is the foundation of any great landscape.
Learn basic design concepts like mass, form, line, texture and color.
While color and texture add interest and richness to a design, mass, form and line are critical to organizing space and providing structure.
Right Plant, Right Place
Get to know your yard.
The right plants for your gardens will grow deeper roots, have fewer pest problems and need less water and work to look beautiful all year long.
Learn about your landscape, dream a garden & create a plan to fit.
Amending Your Soil
Give your plants a great start.
Replenish your soil’s vital minerals and nutrients.
The benefits of improved garden soil quality will give your plants the foundation they need to achieve the best growth.
Ensure your plants have the nutrients they need.
Christine can help take the mystery out of fertilizing. Learn about the different types of fertilizers and when and how to best apply them.
Fertilizer supplies plants with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. A soil test will help determine the levels in your soil.
Trimming your trees and shrubs.
Pruning is necessary to promote good plant health, remove damaged limbs, encourage healthy growth and flowering, and maintain shape.
Learn to prune the right amount at the right time.
Establish your borders.
Edging provides a nice crisp border that helps increase the curb appeal of your property.
The edge also helps ensure that the root systems of the items planted in the flower bed are not taken over by grasses and weeds that guzzle the water.
Transplanting or Replanting
Moving your plants.
Learn the right timing and technique to move a plant so it doesn’t lose its roots, which harms its ability to take up water.
Transplant shock can happen to seedlings, bedding plants, newly planted trees and cannabis plants.
Decorate your pots with “thrillers, spillers and fillers.”
Container gardening is the practice of growing plants, including edible plants, in containers instead of planting them in the ground.
Ideal for those with little or no space, containers can also add versatility to larger gardens, and add color and ambiance to decks or outdoor sitting areas.
Good vs Bad.
To give our plants the best chance to survive and thrive it is essential to encourage and attract good bugs to our garden to feast on their natural prey.
There are plants like Yarrow that attract ladybugs, which help keep aphids under control, and other plants like lavender can help to repel mosquitos.
