Garden Consultations

An initial landscape consultation is extremely helpful in directing the new or established homeowner toward the goal of achieving a beautiful home landscape. This meeting is a pleasurable experience where we can walk your property together exploring your ideas and dreams.

Because every site is unique and each homeowner has specific needs, careful assessment is given during our first meeting to accommodate both requirements. The landscape consultation is designed to be an informative and instructional learning experience, and you are encouraged to take notes.

On-site consultations address the entire site identifying existing trees and shrubs with specific ideas for driveway layout, walkways, patios, retaining walls, drainage, lighting and soil preparation. If appropriate, foundation plantings, perennials, native plantings, herb gardens, water features and basic maintenance will be discussed.

“Janie McCabe was the first person we called when we moved into our home 18 years ago. Janie collaborated with us and offered practical advice to create the cottage gardens we envisioned. We now have a series of beautiful garden rooms that over the years have developed, because of Janie’s artistic ability to create and design. Janie listens to her clients’ wishes and offers suggestions for laying out beds, creating structure, and choosing plants.” — Client
