When we moved into our flipped home, no one had so much as watered anything for years, I suspect. Both front and back yard were your basic high maintenance wasteland. Christine at GardenWise worked closely with us, listening to what we wanted, sending us lists of candidate plantings, and revising the plans without a murmur. We now have what our neighbors all say is the most beautiful yard in the neighborhood. In addition, Christine and Sonia have helped us maintain that beauty, replacing plants and mulch as needed and adding plantings as we have changed the hardscape in our yard. They are artists with greenery.
