Description of Fine Gardening Services

  • Weeding– Plants are pulled by hand or tool. Herbicide is carefully used in certain situations if needed.
  • Pruning– Stems are pruned to invigorate growth, support good health, and maintain appearance of the plant or shrub in its most natural form. We never shear shrubs unless a hedge or shape is to be maintained.
  • Mulching– Mulch can be freshened in small areas. For areas needing 1yd or more, a maintenance day outside the plan will be scheduled.
  • Vegetable Gardens: I can help plan and plant your vegetable garden, fertilize, water, and harvest. Prune berry shrubs or young fruit trees.
  • Annual Flowers & Seasonal Decor– Plant annuals in garden beds, containers, or put up simple holiday decorations like flags, lights, pumpkins, wreaths, ornaments, etc. This includes plantings by seed, bulb, or live plants.
  • Fertilizing– Special fertilizing can be done for specific plants including vegetables, trees, hydrangeas, holly, rhododendrons and azaleas, magnolias, blueberries, boxwoods. Cost of fertilizer is additional.
