Crafting beautiful, functional edible gardens.

Process Overview

After contacting That Garden Guy, the process of creating functional landscaping can be broken down into three phases: project understanding, design & construction, and maintenance. As hands on or hands off as the client would like - offering educational opportunities and teachable moments and general maintenance packages. TGG also works on smaller scale projects and can make you Pinterest dreams a reality. Contact TGG today to learn more. 


I. Project Understanding

In this step, I meet with the client initially and establish a relationship. We discuss the project at length and TGG provides consultation and evaluation of the property. The client’s goals and wishes are reviewed and understood. In addition, the site is analyzed to take into account the existing footprint and structures, desired additions, property boundaries, etc.

TGG evaluates the site to better understand topography, soil profile, existing plants, views, adjacent structures and use patterns. If needed, measurements are taken and the collective information drives the choice and placement of edible plants and conceptual hard scape structures. 

Aesthetics, maintenance and budget are all brought into consideration.


II. Design (& Construction) Phase

Using the base consultation and evaluation information gathered during Step I, TGG creates initial design plan(s) that best express the client’s landscaping wants and needs. The landscape design is presented to the client, and a final conceptual design is reached and agreed upon by all parties. Finalized ideas are created for reference throughout the project. Quotes are presented and agreed upon.

During the construction phase (if necessary), all moving parts of the project are organized by TGG. First, the hardscaping process begins, and any raised garden bed structures begin to take form. Once the shape of the beds have been established, the plants are laid out to achieve the desired aesthetic while maximizing productivity.

Alternately, plantings may take place within the existing structural layout.

III. Maintenance

That Garden Guy is available for maintenance as needed. You can schedule him for yearly, quarterly or weekly maintenance or call on an as-needed basis. Scheduled maintenance assures that your edible garden is as productive as possible, leaving you to reap the benefits of your home-grown, sustainable, heirloom herbs and vegetables. 



In partnership with Feed & Seed, TGG consults with farmers to help them improve restaurant-specific varieties and practices to maximize those relationships, and minimize stress. Want to improve your existing home garden? We can help there, too!
