Have you booked a garden consultation and are wondering what happens next?
Congratulations, you have just taken the first step in transforming your garden space into something you can enjoy! If you have never done a garden consultation before, you may have a few questions regarding this new experience. If that is the case, or you just want a refresher, here is a guide of what you can expect.
Prior to your consultation, please take some time to gather your preferences. Knowing what you want will make it a lot easier to have a discussion with our team. Ask yourself questions such as what type of a garden am I looking for? Some gardens can be more formal (boxwoods, yews..etc) whereas others may utilize more natural/wild-looking plants such as coneflower, black-eyed Susan’s, and various types of daisies. Feel free to also print pictures of what you are looking for. Often, it is easier to see your vision through a picture rather than struggling to describe it in words. If you are struggling to figure out your garden vision, our team will help guide you through your process. We will ask you some questions to get a sense of what you are looking for and show you some of our ideas for your unique space.
While doing so, we will also ask you about your colour preferences. Are you a warm or cool colour person? Would you like blooms of reds, oranges, yellows, and pinks brightening up your space or maybe some blues and purples? Whatever your preferences, do not be afraid to tell us what you like and dislike. This is your garden consultation and your garden, and we want to help you!
Whether you have knowledge in gardening or not, vocalizing what you like and what you do not, can be informative for someone designing your garden. Keeping in mind your budget will also be very helpful in determining what plants will be more appropriate for your unique situation. So, whether you know exactly what you are looking for in your garden, or you are still deciding, use these tips to help move towards a garden you can enjoy! We look forward to meeting with you!
