"My garden has never looked as nice as it does now. I can enjoy it without my landscaping screaming at me for attention. Kim, Stefany and their crew are each extremely knowledgeable horticulturalists. I’m a meticulous gardener and I appreciate their attention to detail. THANK YOU Essential Gardeners!"

The mulch looks great, what a wonderful difference it makes, as does the rest of the north side of the garden. I wasn’t the least bit tempted to do it myself since I knew you’d be coming back to finish the job, and did it better and faster than I ever could, no doubt. I am so glad I found you! Your work has made all the difference in how our garden looks this spring compared to last, and that’s a good thing!

"We recently hired Essential Gardeners to do for general yard clean-up, hedge pruning, and installation of a gravel path. Kim at Essential Gardeners responded quickly to our inquiries, was organized and reliable, and really understood what we wanted. We have a mixed perennial garden with many native plants, and his crew knew which plants to cut back to the ground, which to thin, and which to leave alone. They struck the perfect balance between tidying up and keeping it looking natural. We would recommend Kim and his crew to friends and family."

"Both Kirm and I wanted to say thanks so much for all the work you and your team did in our garden. It’s a rare time that folk come in to work with both knowledge and a great work ethic. And did I mention how personable and helpful everyone was. The work you did was wonderful and the garden looks so much better. Thank you thank you. We will recommend you to everyone who is looking for fine gardeners. Tell Rick everything looked great after he finished."

Lexi and Kim.
