landscape DESIGN AND INSTALLATION
Homestead is a full service Design-Build firm. The designs we create are conceptual, not construction-based and are developed to convey our garden design vision. A consultation at your property is the first step to learn how we can help you transform your garden into a beautiful and productive space. We will walk your property brainstorming ideas with you and offering suggestions. A CAD drawing of your space is made by our lead designer and our own installation crew will execute the design.
Organic edible Garden Maintenance
We offer edible & ornamental plant care on a regular and seasonal basis. Services include organic pest control, fertilizing, succession planting, fruit tree pruning, and harvesting of all fruits, vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers. Our experienced gardeners are available to answer questions and provide hands-on personal instruction. After each visit, our gardeners will email you a personal note including photos of your harvest and recipes, so that you can better understand your garden and what is has to offer. As part of our maintenance services, we offer our clients the unique opportunity to have their herbs, flowers, fruits, and vegetables preserved directly from their garden. Depending on the client's wants and needs, our gardeners can brine olives, make jams from berries and stone fruits (even infused with herbs and flowers), dry herbs and flowers for tea and culinary bundles, and more! We'll work with you to optimize your harvest, minimize waste, and give you the opportunity to enjoy the best of your garden's bounty year round.
Our team is available for in-home floral arranging for maintenance clients based on the gardens' harvest. We also partner with Studio Choo Florists to offer in-home floristry services for special events.
If you would like help growing your favorite vegetables, herbs, and edible flowers in your garden, Homestead Design Collective’s Garden Coaching program will put you on the right track to succeed. Our Garden Experts come to your home for a hands-on, one-on-one walkthrough of your garden. We have answers to all questions, and solutions to any issues. You’ll learn how to best use your space, create a planting calendar, and maximize your harvest. We recommend the best local resources for a healthy and productive garden - from compost and irrigation supplies to our favorite nurseries and seed banks.
BEE HIVE INSTALLATION / MONTHLY SERVICE BEEKEEPING
Hives are a great addition to any garden — not only do they provide delicious honey harvests, but bees also act as pollinators for all the vegetables and flowers in your garden. As part of our design and installation services, we create safe and family-friendly spaces for beehives and honey production. We will install, and then maintain hives on a monthly basis.
