Small Garden Landscape Plans Questions Answered!
- What "product" would you like/expect to receive from a gardening consultant?
I would like to take jobs as a gardening or landscaping consultant, working with homeowners as clients. I do not want to take measurements/draw landscape plans. That takes too much time outside of the meeting/appointment. I feel many people just want to pick my brain and ask questions anyway. But I feel I need to leave them with something, written notes, a list of plants, etc. I want them to feel they got their money's worth. What would comprise a good product? I'd like to make up a form or sheet to use.
- Any tips for a beginner's vegetable garden?
I live in Reno, Nv (Northern Nevada). I have a landscaped backyard with a flower garden, but I want to make a small vegetable garden that will I will plan and take care of by myself. I am planning to start it just outside the fence to my backyard. I will be buying live plants instead of seeds. It will not be attached to the drip system that my other plants use (where's the fun in that?) I plan to research the matter online and check with the nursery for information. I just wanted to also get advice from hobby vegetable gardeners themselves. Thank you for your time:)
