90-Minute Garden Visit
This 90-minute garden visit is a great option if you only need a few pointers or need some inspiration to get started with your desert garden.
No written materials are provided, so have your notebook ready!
I will come to your yard and learn about your landscape goals. We will identify specific areas to focus on, and I will take loads of photos. Your customized Strategic Habitat Enhancment Plan will guide your habitat transformation with prescriptions for each of the focus areas and serve as a guide for plant choice and more!
Self-paced classes allow you to learn about natural landscaping practices and our diverse native flora on your scheulde. When you purchase a class, you receive a PDF of the slides to take notes on, as well as bloom calendars and other materials as applicable.
Custom Workshops & Speaking Engagements
Interested in installing a waystation for monarch butterflies? Or how to make native wiildlfower seed balls? Make it a party and level up your HOA association or garden club with a custom, hands-on workshop! I've done workshops for garden clubs, professional organizations, schools, non-profits, and community groups. Do you have an idea? Let's talk!
Plant Procurement & Delivery
Native plant availability can vary dramatically by season and often a project will require working with more than one vendor. SHE works closely with local growers and can coordinate ordering plant materials, deliver the plants to your landscape, and even help you arrange them in the locations where they should be installed. The fee for this service varies depending on the number of plants and vendors involved, and plants must be paid for separately. Ask for a quote!
Personal Nursery Shopper
Do you ever wish you had a knowledgeable plant-shopping buddy? I would be more than happy to accompany you to local nurseries or plant sales to help you choose plants for your project. The fee for this service is an hourly charge of $50 with a 2-hour minimum. Let’s make a day of it!
