A Julie Witmer garden design is created at the intersection between a specific place and the particular people who inhabit it. By considering the advantages and constraints of a certain garden and its owners, she creates a more ecologically sensitive, sustainable (lower maintenance), and enjoyable garden. Julie will work to draw out what exactly you want and need in your ideal garden.

Each project is managed individually and can involve some or all of the following, depending on each client’s needs:

  • Consultation
  • Site visit (local)
  • Site research and assessment
  • Video conference (long-distance)
  • Site survey (local)
  • Pinterest Mood Board specifically created for your project with plant growing and buying info links
  • Hand-drawn sketches
  • Drafted design plans
  • Planting lists and plans
  • Color rendering
  • Planting brief that may include advice, maintenance tips and/or a maintenance schedule
  • Email support
  • The opportunity to have follow-up meetings to grow as a gardener in caring for your plot

$55/hour for all services.

Julie was a great resource when I moved to my new home and wanted to turn my oversized yard into joyful living spaces. Julie listened to my ideas, answered a million questions, carefully considered my preferences and needs, and came up with an actionable plan for making my dream garden a reality. She’s not only a wealth of knowledge about all things garden, she comes alongside people to help them experience the joy of gardening for themselves.

Having a garden around your home enables you to regularly delight in creation until it becomes a beautiful part of your own human experience.
