About Gardens Your Way
Gardens Your Way installs new or pre-existing vegetable gardens right to the finish. We do this by tilling, preparing soil, planting plants and building any infrastructure needed.
We can even install an automatic watering system. This service is for those who want to eat the best possible produce which is vine ripened, fresh picked and organically grown.
This is perfect for those who can't do it, or don't have the time, or energy.
Questions and answers
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
I have been growing organic produce for some fourteen years with much success, starting all my plants by seed, tending them till it's time to transplant, till and make the soil ready to receive the plants, and nurse them along through the growing seasons.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
That I think it provides a great service to people and hopefully puts a dent in the rising rate of illness of the last twenty years since the use of herbicides, pesticides, insecticides, and the rest of the chemical contaminates have become widely acceptable.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
My first and foremost question would be to make sure that the customer knows for sure the person selling them a garden, really is qualified to be doing this and can with almost certainty, guarantee success from the garden.
- What types of jobs are the most common?
Just your standard tomato, pepper, green beans, corn, watermelon, c antelope, strawberry, and onion type gardens.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
I enjoy all the gardens I have the honor to build. They all bring satisfaction from the gratitude of the owners who just can't do this themselves for what ever the reason may be.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
By having a vegetable garden you not only reap the rewards of the finest produce all summer long, but over the course of that summer you will actually save money over including the cost of installation, and the cost of store bought produce.
- How did you get started?
I began with about two dozen or so plants in a small spot in my parents back yard, and within a couple of years I was tending about an acre of organic plants, and learning the craft as I went along. I've acquired many tricks of the trade and a vast amount of knowledge in plant care and the best things to do to have a healthy garden full of healthy plants bringing forth healthy fruits.
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I'm just your average hard working, integrity laden, honest Joe who enjoys the work he has undertaken.
- What are the most frequent questions you get from customers? What are the answers?
Usually things like how long before they can eat the fruit which is determined by the age of the plants at planting and how long till they mature.
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
There are some things can be arranged after the garden is in the ground. Infra-structure can be added in, watering systems can be designed and installed, weeding can be done, monthly feeding also can be arranged, and when the growing season is over we can come back and till the ground up rough for the winter to replenish the soils.
- What information do you recommend to have readily available before looking for a professional in your trade?
The amount of people the garden needs to supply, thus you can determine the amount of plants and the square footage of the garden. What type if any of automated watering system you would like, and last but not least, the type of appearance they want the garden to have by way of the infra-structure.
- What brands or products do you work with?
I mainly use Burpee or NK seeds to start out with, Jiffy pots and seed starting soil, I have a strong propensity to using mainly Schultz plant food as I've always gotten great results with it.
- What certifications or professional affiliations do you have?
- How many projects do you average in a year?
This installation part of my growing history is only in it's fifth year, but there has been an increase in popularity over the last two years where I averaged about twenty five to forty garden installations across the tri-state area.
