Kerry is another client who’d purchased a home with an existing garden that she loved but wasn’t sure how to care for.

She had added a vegetable garden that was struggling because of a drip irrigation system failure.

I wrote a report with care details and suggested arborists for the trees that required specialized cloud pruning or were situated in awkward locations. I also included some notes on the irrigation system.

Later I returned to give her a tutorial to build her confidence in pruning shrubs and less formal small trees.
