If you are excited about the possibility of a backyard kitchen garden, but don’t know where to begin, I can help!! I have been helping people grow gardens for over a decade, and now I am excited to bring the wild child way of gardening to your space to help you achieve a garden symphony that only gets better season after season.
Whether your space is a small patio or an estate sized lot, whether you dream of formal designs or whimsical garden spaces we can create a space for you that will bring you joy for many years to come. How do we do it? We focus on feeding the soil, instead of fertilizing the plants, so the garden is more productive, has less pests, and sees fewer diseases than when using traditional growing methods. The garden symphony of raised beds, nutrient rich soil, and companion planting is what we believe is the most efficient and most productive, not to mention healthiest, way to grow your own food. And a wild child garden just gets better over time.
I am excited that you are interested in growing a wild child kitchen garden in your backyard. And I would love to help you get started.
The first step to bring your kitchen garden dreams come true is to schedule a consult in your future garden space. If you are in the greater Baton Rouge, New Orleans, or Lafayette area, we’ll schedule a time to visit your landscape in person. We are also happy to meet with you via FaceTime or ZOOM if you are out of town. Consults in your garden are $199 and include so much goodness. Keep reading!!
The consult will begin with a tour through your landscape, where we will focus on your goals and dreams and determine how best to make that happen within your budget. Dreaming with you in your future garden space is how the wild child kitchen garden begins. I will give you a brief introduction to our best practices in setting up a thriving kitchen garden using the three key elements of a wild child kitchen garden 1) raised beds, 2) soil building, and 3) companion planting. And finally, we will discuss a kitchen garden design that best fits your landscape, your your priorities, and your budget.
After the consult, we’ll prepare a plan of your kitchen garden design including all vegetables, herbs, and flowers to plant for the season. These plans will be emailed to you on a pdf, and will give you a great starting point for to making your kitchen garden dreams come true. If you would like help going forward we offer TURNKEY or DIY services.
With our turnkey services, we will handle every single aspect of your kitchen garden installation including removal of existing vegetation or hardscape, proper preparation for the garden, construction and installation of the raised bed structures, irrigation, specially mixed soil, plants, and trellises. We even provide plant tags. We cover it all and just leave the fun of gardening to you. If you would like to consider this service, an estimate will be provided within one week to you, including all of the above components of the backyard garden symphony. This estimate does not obligate you to our services in any way, but will give you an idea of what you dream garden will cost.
Some of our clients prefer to do the installation work themselves and simply receive coaching services from us from this point. With this option, we are here to answer any questions you may have and give recommendations for every aspect of your kitchen garden. From where to get locally curated soil and organic plants to organic amending and feeding recommendations, you will have all the tools necessary to build your dream garden space. This option allows you to complete the installation while still ensuring that you’re setting things up right the first time.
If you choose this option, your estimate will be submitted to you within one week. Upon estimate approval, we will get to work quickly to begin the construction of your custom raised beds and schedule the installation of your garden as soon as possible. We know that garden seasons wait for no one, so we’ll work hard to get your garden installed within two to four weeks of your approval.
For DIY clients, we will be available by the half hour ($50/half hour) as your personal kitchen garden coach whenever you need assistance. (We can even help you maintain your garden if you need us to!)
Our TURNKEY packages include a final garden walk through. We’ll make sure you know what’s growing and understand the steps you’ll need to take to ensure kitchen garden success.
You can be sure that when our work is done, your wild child kitchen garden symphony will be ready for you to takeover and enjoy all season long.
