Backyard Gardens

Do you want to grow fresh veggies, fruit, herbs and edible flowers at home, but not sure where to start? Or do you have a green thumb, but want to grow more efficiently?


We can design, install and maintain vegetable gardens of varying sizes and styles for your home. From small raised-bed gardens perfect for your apartment balcony to large backyard landscapes, we will work with you to create your dream garden. All of our garden designs include quality composted soil, efficient irrigation, and heirloom seed varieties of your choosing. Our edible gardens crew will get your garden started and help you learn how to grow delicious chemical-free food right in your backyard. We can also take care of all maintenance, providing a hassle-free edible green space!

The benefits of an edible home garden are numerous and varied, and include:

  • The freshest and healthiest produce straight from garden to kitchen
  • Economic independence: less on the grocery list
  • Less packaging and waste
  • Reduced fossil fuel use: cut the need for transportation
  • Beautiful green additions to your home environment
  • Improved micro-climate at your home: plants create clean air, sequester carbon dioxide and make you smile

Edible Gardens are a great addition to any residential landscape. Contact us for more information or to set up a meeting. 775.747.2222, tom (at)
