Garden Planning, Planting, Maintenance
Organic Vegetable Gardening Services
For in-ground and raised bed gardens
Gardening season runs from April to November
You tell us what you like to eat and we’ll develop a personalized planting plan that produces beautiful, bountiful harvests, and that suits your palate and the conditions of your garden. Our garden plans encompass organic methodologies that include crop rotation and companion planting in order to stay one step ahead of pests and diseases, and to enhance crop flavor and attract beneficial and pollinating insects.
Your garden will be prepared and planted by our expert, two-person crew who will take care of everything needed to ensure a successful garden. Early plantings include cold hardy crops such as peas, radish, onions, spinach, kale, arugula, and more, followed by heat lovers such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumber, squash, and beans. During every visit, we water, weed, mulch, and feed your garden as necessary. We can also establish hoop tunnels for season extension. Critter barriers and shade cloth can be added for crop protection. Typical gardens of roughly 60 square feet require two planting visits of one to two hours per visit.
$160 per hour, one hour minimum
