HOW DOES SATURATE DIFFER FROM A LANDSCAPE DESIGNER?
A Saturate Garden is grown without any lengthy design and build process, so it can be done at your pace and within your desired budget. Traditionally, the landscaping industry offers only expensive, intensive installs, and "mow & blow" maintenance to handle the upkeep (which it doesn't do very well). Saturate offers a new kind of service addressing the true needs of both gardens and homeowners. We do not do hardscaping or big contractor makeovers, though we can help manage such projects for you. And we are one of few services making fine-gardening work accessible and essential so that we can stop relying on synthetic fertilizers and over-watering to maintain yards.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO HAVE A SATURATE GARDEN?
Depending on property size, current landscape condition and client desires, Saturate members generally invest between $2500 through $50,000 a year on their gardens. That includes additional labor, organic soil treatments, plants, materials, parts, customer service, etc.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Being a holistic service, there are a lot of ways we instantly beautify our clients gardens (potted plants, styling, groundcover, soil treatments, etc). However, the long-term goal is to develop a resilient, complete ecology, and that is a process that takes seasons and cycles, each of which is different. Right now, we are prepping clients to begin winter platings and revive sun-baked soil to ensure a gorgeous spring!
New clients typically require a series of up-front sessions to stabilize their gardens, then we plan for ongoing visits every month, 2 months or every season depending on needs and wants. As your personal Field Guide and concierge, I will be in touch regarding any plans, visits and shopping requests! You no longer have to worry about what's going on with your groundskeeper or with your irrigation system, I'm on it.
DO I FIRE MY GROUNDSKEEPER?
No. Our typical recommendation is to put the current groundskeeper under our management and invest in a training session to elevate your routine 15-minute "clean-up." Saturate will be visiting your property on a less-frequent basis to perform in-depth, high-level gardening work and to make things look generally fabulous!
