Need some consulting or one-on-one
coaching on your next gardening project?

Hand-holding upon request. The Gardenerd will make a house call and help sort out your garden with you. Whether you need help pruning your roses, or problem solving with your soil, we’ll leave you feeling confident and knowledgeable in as little as just one visit. Hourly rates apply.

  • Consultations for Design – Do you want a new garden built from scratch? We can do that. The process starts with a consultation where we come to you with graph paper, compass, and tape measure. We walk through your space together and talk about your needs. Then we share a list of seasonal crops to help you decide what to grow. We can sketch out a rough design of what fits your space and map out what crops will fit. From there we can send you a white-paper estimate with a rough idea of what we think materials and labor will cost. Most clients need just an hour for a consultation and they’re off and running! However, we do pro-rate by 15-minute increments if you need more time. Hourly rates apply. Sound good? Call us to set up a consultation at 310-773-4806.
  • Hands-on Consultations – Need some help troubleshooting problems with your existing garden? We can help. We visit your garden and review all your questions, offer solutions and resources, and help you feel confident moving forward. Hourly rates apply.

Client Testimonial…

“Sometimes I just need a friend to listen and understand. Christy hears what I’m saying and has always been a great helping hand. I feel assured she knows what I’m talking about.” – R. Diskin, Los Angeles, CA.

“Christy really knows what she is talking about. She gives you clear guidance and information that is incredibly helpful!! And no judgement. She is a true gem!!” – K. Moore

“The garden is the beautiful focal point as one enters the property. [Christy] took the Hawaiian theme of the house and made the garden box work architecturally blend in. Now my six year old picks a few strawberries as she gets home from school. I don’t have to go to the grocery store to make a healthy vibrant salad. To have an array of fruits and vegetable at your finger tips is a convenience and a  blessing. Thank you Christy!” – S. Respondek
