Learn / Ask The Landscape Professional
I have seen a number of spectacular gardens that you have designed and installed and I am anxious to have you do my property as well in 2015. How do we get started?
Now is a great time to begin the process to design
and install a garden for 2015. Whether you have a
small or large project in mind, my design team and I
work through the fall and winter getting ready for next
year. We are actually working now on projects for next
The first step is to call me and I will set up a visit
with you to go over your thoughts, preferences and
space(s) involved for the project. If you aren't certain
what you are looking for, that's not a problem; I can
help guide you. We then make detailed site drawings
and I develop the planting design. Plant choices
that I recommend are based on 30+ years of experience
in what works in this area and what doesn't. I
have tried everything I plant and guarantee all of
our plantings for a year. I know plants and specialize
in native, low-maintenance landscapes. See
for hundreds of pictures of
our work. Our planting season starts on May 15 (the date
of the last frost in this area) and runs until late October every year.
We install gardens based on the order contracts are signed,
so if you are thinking about doing a project, now is the time
to let us know. If you wait until next spring, that's not
a problem, but you will just be farther down the list. In
addition to landscape services, Sprigs & Twigs offers
high quality stonework and carpentry services; see
on www.SprigsandTwigs.net. Whether your project is hundreds
of dollars or tens of thousands of dollars, we provide the
same high quality products and services and attention to detail.
We look forward to working with you.
