Stumped on how to fill in your garden beds, or overwhelmed by your options? Or maybe you just want some general advice on maintaining your garden? 

Taking a closer look at the site conditions, wildlife use, as well as discussing preferences and desired functions, are all essential aspects in making the best decisions when it comes to planting the right thing in the right place, and avoiding difficulties in the future. Farmington Garden’s offers two consultation packages. Both services offer well thought out recommendations and detailed observation, backed by a wealth of knowledge that will help guide you towards a lush and healthy garden for you to enjoy.

A consultation at your residence can provide you with the necessary steps to move forward. It is also the first step provided with our design service, and can help advise you on whether a design or just planting suggestions is right for you and your budget.

Garden Coach Consultation

This consult provides you with an on-site visit from one of our Farmington Gardens Design team consultants and includes general gardening advice of existing or new plantings. Our team will assist you with basic planting suggestions, maintenance requirements, plant identification, and answer any other questions you may have concerning your landscape or other services offered by Farmington Gardens.

Rate: $125               ($125 flat fee for the first hour, $50 for every additional 1/2 hour)

Designer Planting Consultation or DIY Design

When we arrive on site, we will take the first few minutes to walk the property and discuss your concerns, preferences. We will walk you through basic design concepts and ideas, as well as plant suggestions. Then we will take any necessary measurements, photos for record, and look closer at your soil. After the consultation you will receive a comprehensive plant list tailored to suit preferences, site conditions, and desired functions.

This is the best option for those on a tight budget, have smaller planting areas to enhance, need planting ideas for an upcoming event, design guided container planting, or want to design their garden themselves with some advanced help.

Rate: $100 per hour – Minimum 4 hours

*You may then opt to schedule a plant list review
