Garden Consulting

The goal is always to work with the site as naturally as possible, but within this broad guideline each garden is carefully tailored to its owners’ needs and desires. Whether by providing detailed drawings, touching up existing plans or simply working as a coach, Leslie helps you develop and realize your personal garden style.

The full range of services is available in Dutchess County, New York, and Knox County, Maine. Short consultations and limited projects are undertaken much farther afield. Fees depend on project scope and may be hourly or by the job. Travel costs are paid by the client. Implementation is collaborative, with clients taking an active role in hiring and oversight, if not actual labor. Contact
