Spending  time to think about how you’ll use your garden, how you’d like it to look, and how much time you have for garden care is the best investment in your garden that you can make.

A landscape designer can make suggestions you wouldn’t have thought of yourself, as well as help you choose appropriate plants, and solve potential problems with soil or drainage.

If you’re not ready to do it all at once, you can do it in phases, and get bids for a piece of the project. Having a plan will help you make sure everyone is bidding on the same thing.

"Gardening is humbling work. It brings you to your knees."
