Services at Six Seasons Garden Consulting

Gardening can be confusing—pruning, planting, fertilizing, mulching, winterizing, watering. When to do a certain chore? How to do it? And most importantly why am I doing this? The decisions can be overwhelming and seemingly endless. But I like to approach gardening from the perspective of play. That’s not to say that it’s not a lot of work—it is! But, I believe gardening should also be fun.

Where else but a garden can we channel our inner child and delight in the world of nature—digging in the soil; observing flowers, creepy-crawlies, and insects closeup; creating living art vignettes; and feeling in tune with a different rhythm—one that makes you lose track of time.

A garden is the perfect place for adults to shed all expectations of perfection and just have fun! Creating a beautiful space where you can relax, entertain family and friends, and enjoy nature are bonus benefits.

Gardening has enriched my life on so many levels. I want to share what I’ve learned in my 25-plus years as a professional and home gardener in hopes that you, too, will find joy, health, and peace in your garden. I want to give you permission to play! Check out what types of services I offer below, and let me know what you need to get you growing!
