How to Have a Garden That
Makes You FEEL ALIVE!
Introducing the SUSTAINABLE WAY to enjoy your dream garden:
less stressful for you, non-toxic for your family and stabilizing to our climate...
My name is Max. I’m a G3-certified Gardener and the co-founder of Saturate.
If you’re like most homeowners I've worked with over the past 2+ years, you’re probably a bit disappointed and at least mildly frustrated:
With your confusing irrigation system. With costly mistakes. With new landscaping that doesn’t look as good as it should. With old, tasteless landscaping you don’t know what to do with. And probably if we’re being honest, with your groundskeeper…
After closely investigating these issues at over 50 properties in Southern California, I’ve uncovered the #1 reason our landscapes are so dysfunctional, unhealthy, and underwhelming:
The old ways of maintaining our yards are no longer working!
Climate Change has revealed major flaws in the cheap, careless ways we've become used to treating our land here in California.
To have the garden YOU REALLY WANT—without taking on a very time-consuming and knowledge-intensive new hobby—you have GOT to start investing in holistic garden care!
Carrying on with the status quo of "industry standard" maintenance threatens to keep heating up our region, ultimately turning coastal SoCal into a desert...
But I’m confident that won’t happen. Because there IS a way to restore our depleted soil, revive our native ecosystem and improve our land's ability to retain moisture and sequester carbon...
A healthier, less stressful way to have a gorgeous garden is starting to catch on…
LET ME BREAK IT DOWN FOR YOU:
1. Life-nourishing care is replacing aggressive, industrial upkeep
Clean up crew or groundskeeper comes for 15 minutes a week, cuts everything into painful shapes with polluting gas-powered tools, blows leaves around, and pumps the soil full of toxic, synthetic fertilizer.
Holistic gardening service comes periodically for intensive 3 hour sessions to perform essential seasonal projects and soil treatments, including feeding the plants with nutrient-rich compost tea and pruning with hand-tools.
2. Thoughtful, weather-sensitive watering will edge out ineffective sprinklers
Mis-configured sprinklers water plants for arbitrary amounts of time every day. There’s probably a leak, but your groundskeeper isn't telling you about it. Some plants are drowning, others are thirsty, but no one can figure out what's really going on.
Gardening service creates an expert watering plan, installs and manages a smart controller, and supplements with gentle hand watering. Sprinklers are functioning and monitored, while swales and rain barrels ween the land off of imported water.
3. Mass-market plantings will give way to expertly selected natives
Native plantings are procured and placed by an expert who considers all the factors needed for them to flourish: placement, timing, watering and much more. Plant and soil health are routinely monitored.
Big-box stores and nurseries sell misinformed homeowners mass-grown plants that aren't well-suited for their land. Improperly placed and cared for, new plantings rarely survive or do well.
4. Cheap shortcuts will be corrected with conscious investment
After paying a ton for landscaping, homeowners expect to spend as little as possible caring for their land, relying on unskilled labor to implement quick-fixes and short-cuts. Degraded life and expensive mistakes become the norm, causing stress for both the land and the homeowners.
Homeowners invest in excellent holistic care for their land because they understand the real estate value of a healthy beautiful garden, and the ecological impact they want to have. They allow experts to take over the burden of management so they can relax and enjoy their garden.
