Fall Garden Consultation Special – edgy veggies, rain gardens, landscape renovations & all-round planting design

Bring us your toughest landscape dilemmas and we’ll talk you through your options. Steep bank? Clay soil? Difficult shade areas? Want to grow vegetables? Bring it on! Schedule a consultation with HAZEL during these last three months of 2012, for a discounted consultation rate.

We’ll start with a walk through, flip through some inspiring photos and drawings, then you’ll receive a list of recommended actions, suggested plants & materials, and sketches of several possible future design directions. This is the fun part! Fall is also the perfect time to start thinking about changes you’d like to make in next year’s garden… and even plant a few new things.
