Helping the earth bloom

Native Sun's Services 



Through 2 design meetings on-site, we will develop a design that fuses the needs and preferences of the client with the specific conditions of the site to create a vibrant and beautiful garden.


In one 3 hour on-site visit we will listen to your wants and needs, take microclimate assesments and develop a plant list and use plan.  A great way for a DIY person to get validation for their garden's transformation.
