Guidance for Garden Care

We provide garden evaluations post-installation to make sure your Portland landscape is on the right track.


Performance Guaranteed

A new landscape, unlike a new house, takes time to mature. We are committed to making sure all of our work is successful in the long-term. We design all of our landscapes to meet our own rigorous requirements for performance. One of the ways that sets us apart from the field is that not only do we provide design and build services, but we also provide yearly evaulations and care services for all our new installations.

Fine Gardening Services


Garden evaluations are a good way to get your landscape back on the right track. It's important to have a professional evaluate your plants and give the appropriate prescriptions. All new installations include a complementary evaluation. We highly recommend using this service within a year after the new landscape has been installed.


Most woody plants will need some pruning in their lifetime. Some need very little, some need it annually. Knowing how, when, and what to prune is what most amateur gardeners are not confident with, while many landscapers are too confident. We can help demystify it all for you.

General Garden Care

We have an immense love and knowledge of ornamental and edible gardening, and we provide services with that same kind of appreciation. We offer some generalized care services, including IPM, compost tea, annual trimming back of perennials and grasses, clean-ups, and much more.
