How a Slow-Grow Garden Plan can work for you
Gardens grow nearly year-round in the Pacific Northwest climate we enjoy so much here in Eugene. It makes good sense to gradually develop a garden month by month, adding new plants and expanding or filling the space as you go based on what is in season so that those plants can grow to their healthiest possible reach and the garden space slowly expands to accommodate the new additions.
Many families in Eugene want a big productive garden, but the financial outlay of initial construction, and the amount of time required to tend and maintain a garden can be daunting considerations.
Slow-Grow spreads out the work and the expense of building a garden
The initial consultation with Eugene Garden Design is always free. We need to get together on your property to discuss what kind of garden you have in mind – flowers, vegetables, a mixture of everything? We need to look at your property and talk about options like in-ground vegetable beds, raised garden bed planters, and the needs you’d like your garden to fulfill as it grows over time.
From there, the Slow Grow Garden Plan kicks into gear!
Every month, more area will be turned over and planted up as part of the garden. Each week some work will be done to create more, add new plants, and tend what has already been created.
- If you have raised planter beds in mind, this means building one new planter box at a time, bringing in soil to fill it, and planting it up according to your ideas of what you’d like to grow.
- If we’re creating in-ground garden beds, this means new ground dug over, enriched and planted creating a gradually expanding garden area in whatever shape and layout we’ve planned together.
Be a part of the process, or let Eugene Garden Design tackle it
For those who have always dreamed of having a beautiful and productive garden, Eugene Garden Design can use the Slow-Grow Garden Plan to meet up with you in your garden and work with you, beside you, getting you involved in the process of making and tending your garden as we grow and expand it according to your ideas. Active hands-on training in the garden, and the satisfaction of having created your garden yourself!
For many people, they simply work too much or have too many other obligations on their time and can’t make the time to work in the garden. The Slow-Grow Garden Plan can gradually grow the garden for you, making it easy for a busy person to just enjoy the flowers and vegetables as the garden gradually expands, increases and grows in productivity.
“I need a vegetable garden for extra food, but with my disability I wasn’t able to find the energy to dig and plant on my own. But this plan works for me, and I can get involved in the ways that I can.”
The exact details of your Slow-Grow Garden Plan will be tailored to your unique needs, and what kind of garden you want to develop on your land. This process can be totally unique to the conditions of your property and the needs of your family.
