Garden Services Overview

Taproot Garden Design & Fine Gardening is dedicated to providing all-organic, ecologically responsible garden services for our customers. Our primary focus is in helping our customers create & maintain safe, healthy and harmonious gardens.

 

Our Garden Service Include:

WEEDING
We pull weeds by hand and never use harmful chemical herbicides.

 

PRUNING & DEADHEADING
We remove old growth and spent flower heads for maximum growth potential and overall health of plants. Major pruning is done during plants' dormancy periods or immediately after first flush of flowers begins to fade.

 

RAKING
We rake fallen leaves from under plants. No gas-powered blowers will be used to avoid generating air & noise pollution.

 

SWEEPING
We sweep patios, walkways & sidewalks with brooms. No gas-powered blowers will be used.

 

INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT (IPM)
We use a mixture of water, fish emulsion (as a foliar feed) and organic peppermint soap to make our organic insecticide/foliar feed. Although it kills pests, it is not harmful to you, your pets, or your gardener. We do not use harmful pesticides.

 

IRRIGATION
We troubleshoot your irrigation during every visit and inform you of any leaks or broken parts as found.

 

 

FERTILIZING
We use a variety of all organic fertalizers to strengthen the soil's existing biology. We never use chemical fertilizers (such as Miracle-Gro) because these can leave unwanted chemical elements in the soil which can seep into the ground, drain into our Bay and back into our drinking water. Compost tea, while a bit more expensive is completely organic and enviromentally safe, plus it adds beneficial microbial components to the soil which helps the soil feed your plants.

 

Please note: We do not service turf-lawn, as traditional turf is extremely water-thirsty, declines quickly in poor weather conditions, and typically requires chemical fertilizers to look healthy. Ask us about great looking, long lasting turf replacement solutions for your lawn.
