For our design clients, Gardens By Design offers garden maintenance on an hourly basis. Some of our clients opt for regularly scheduled maintenance while others call us on an as needed basis. Our goal is to meet your needs. We strive to be very flexible for you. We also provide special Spring Maintenance services at the inception of the growing season and Winter Preparation at the conclusion of the season. Spring Maintenance includes removal of spent foliage, fertilizing all plants, pruning and weeding as necessary and refreshment of mulch. Winter Preparation entails caging trees, wrapping shrubs, cutting back the plants that require it and planting spring flowering bulbs.
