What is Full Service Maintenance?

“Full Service” means we can be hired to take care of the entire gardening experience for raised bed gardens, orchards, food forests, and any other type of edible or functional landscaping.

This includes a custom annual planting plan, organic pest control, irrigation management, weeding, caring for the soil, and harvesting the crops to be left in a grocery bag on your doorstep.

If you want to be more hands-on in the gardening process, we’ve got you covered! All of our plants come with our unique metal QR Code labels that show you how to harvest, store, and cook the crops in your garden by yourself with a little expert advice.
