We are driven to improve the current standard of garden care most homes in Boulder County receive. We stay informed by reading the most recent scientific publications of the trade and adjust our garden methods to reflect these changes in the communities general understanding. We love developing relationships with our clients built around reliability, trust, and consistency. We really focus on being communicative and simplifying the whole process to ensure that every time we leave we have improved our client's living space.
We like to think that taking care of your garden is similar to taking care of yourself. Having good garden hygiene, (i.e. keeping weeds down, removing debris and mulching your beds) comes hand in hand with a healthy, vibrant living ecosystem and contributes to what everyone wants, Better Blooms. We pride ourselves on constantly staying informed about Colorado's current "Best Management Practices" and follow them accordingly whenever we are working in yards we serve. We highly value sustainable and organic maintenance practices as well as approaching each yard as its own specific ecosystem. Through these cultural controls alone we can typically fend of major diseases and pests. Only when this is not enough do we consider the use of organic pesticides and fungicides. We are very detail oriented, client-focused and communication driven and understand that gardening looks different for every client. Let us make your garden better, brighter and Boulder.
Consultations are needed beforehand to allow us to estimate the total monthly service hours your property would need each month. At this point we can determine the best service package for your yards needs and determine if a monthly, biweekly, or weekly visiting schedule is most appropriate.
Rates are based on our set $35/hr/person rate

We have learned how to plant trees and shrubs so large they will look as if they've been there for years as soon as we leave. We have developed tried and true methods that allow us to plant large trees in even the most hard to access areas. We do not use machinery while planting to minimize soil compaction and the unsightly disturbances that often come with equipment treads. Our combined 8 years of planting experience in Colorado has lent itself well as our planting methods have continued to promote long term health and success.
Pricing is based off of both plant size and species, as well as the labor costs associated with (proper planting, delivery, compost/amending, and staking)
