I am very pleased with the consultation provided by Julie, the Garden Coach. Her written plan included an explanation of what types of plants would work best in each location considering sunlight and soil conditions. She advised us to get rid of a raised bed garden area that was no longer working for us because the neighbor’s trees had grown up over the years. She suggested we turn most of it back into lawn, which we will do in the fall. We have existing material we can use to define the new smaller garden area, so the only cost will be labor and a few seeds! Julie instructed us on pruning to keep the flowers blooming and she demonstrated just how to do it. She also gave our gardens what she called a “face lift”, getting rid of dying and overgrown plants. She advised us to cut back certain shrubs to encourage more growth and maintain privacy rather than get rid of plants that still have possibilities, and put focal point plants in odd numbers for visual appeal. She knows what needs to be done. Julie is a Master Gardener and it shows!
