FAQ

Where do you Ship?

Currently ONLY Southern California. This means from the Santa Barbara area and South to San Diego. 

 

How Does it Work?

You decide how much space you have, pick a plant package you like and set your delivery date for up to 30 days from the time you order. We provide DIY install instructions or you can hire a landscaper or gardener. 

We recommend being home on the date of delivery so you can decide if you want to send any plants back.

 

Can I customize a preplanned garden?

Absolutely! We provide substitutions, additions and size increases by request and for additional fees where necessary.

 

What About Water?

All of our preplanned gardens are drought tolerant (excluding some edible packages) which means they can survive periods without water in cases of extreme drought *ONCE* established. Establishment (when plants are getting their roots set in the ground) typically takes 1-2 years. 

Some of our plant packages can also survive with little to no supplementary water once established. For those that require more consistent watering you can either hand water or install drip.

 

When Should I Order?

We require a minimum of 3 days notice for delivery but can schedule as far out as 30 days. Delivery available on WEEKDAYS ONLY. Go ahead and order whenever you like and just let us know if you need to change your delivery date.
 
Fall-Spring is the best time to plant in California but you can make anything work.

How Long Does it Take to GROW In?

Plants are living things that take anywhere from 1-3 years to fully fill in. Trees take a little longer. But once things get going, get ready because our sun filled climate can turn flowers and shrubs into blooming machines!

 

Should I install myself or hire a landscaper?

DIY'ers: We know you’re out there. You want to get totally wild and do it yourself. No problem! Digging holes is a great way to get fit (see our hole digging handbook here). Or you rent an electric shovel from your local home depot (here) … just look out for those tree roots! They may take an axe… or just dig around them if you want to save your big shading buddy.  

OR Hire a Landscaper

Gardens & landscapers are at the ready to install our pre-planned gardens. Check out our ever-growing list of locally recommended installers: Hire-a-landscaper or ask your local mow & blower if he knows anybody.
