What is Horticultural Maintenance?

It's a careful review of your plant material every spring to advise you and help you set priorities and goals for the season and to bring your attention to problems in the garden.

Horticultural Maintenance is a customizable service that includes weeding, scratching of mulch, hand pruning, insect and disease scouting, plant diagnostics, plant division, removal, and replacement, seasonal color . . . to name a few.  You choose the services, and we will perform the tasks!

Visits are monthly, bimonthly, seasonal, or annual depending on your goals and budget.
