Consultation by Box of Rain
WHY WE ARE AN EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR YOUR DESIGN OR CONSULT:
Box of Rain gets hired and keeps clients long term (some for over 17 years now) because we have developed a knowledge base of the local Seattle gardens and their needs over the last 22 years of physically working in the gardens, side by side, rather than growing our business larger and hiring people to do the work we do.
We know the soil of different areas, we know the places some plants will thrive and others will suffer, we know how to prune anything for it to be the best version of a plant it can be.
Our eyes have become keenly adept to the finer lines of design and esthetic value, where even small changes can make big differences. We understand the feel a good landscape can give and have earned the experience that being a part of so many gardens and landscapes has taught us.
We are also Gardeners.
Not everyone who does Landscape work is a Gardener, and we seem to be becoming getting rarer, but we are still at it and want to share our knowledge by creating great gardens and educating our clients on why Organic practice is the only long term viable technique for a truly healthy garden and yard.
LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE CONSULT:
We can help you with knowledge and advice that can save you money, help your garden be as healthy (and organic!) as possible and even reduce the amount of work it takes to keep your garden in shape by implementing proper techniques, teaching proper pruning times of the year and the specifics of each plant variety along with soil management, fertilizing and watering schedules.
We can provide a full scale inventory of your plants, soil needs and pruning scope for all the seasons of the year - setting you or your help on the right path to a great garden.
By utilizing all my years of experience as a gardener and designer - and actually working in the field rather than the office - I can provide a multitude of answers to questions, suggestions and even a full re-design and installations of gardens.....at what ever level of help you need.
Its best to let me know before a Consult what level of help you need - Just an hour or so for some questions on something you want to do? Or do you need a inventory of your plants along with a care sheet I can create and send to you?
A good idea of what we will be addressing is really helpful for me to be prepared to give you the best information possible!
Consult on a project is charged at $75.00 per hour. Costs can vary greatly due to size of landscape and level of help needed.
- A typical consult with the client taking notes usually runs around 1-2 hours: $75 - $150.00 and is with Mary Kay Swanson.
