Client Comments

“Gardening Matters was the only place that offered the service we were looking for - plant identification for our existing landscape in our new home. Joyce spent over an hour with us answering questions and identifying plants, as well as, offering care and pruning advice for each one, plus she has provided email follow-up."

​"Joyce knows the plants that grow well in this area, has great ideas and access to good suppliers. She is personable, easy to work with, prompt and has a keen, artistic eye.” 

“Gardening Matters provided a consultation for some changes to my garden. They gave me a list of various plants and trees among which I made my choices. They were timely and professional and I am thrilled with the results.” 

​“I had a consultation with Joyce and found her to be knowledgeable and passionate about gardening. I’m a novice and she was very patient and asked the right questions, ending up with a written report that included a garden plan and a  list of plants for my particular location.”
