the ladybug VISIT

We designed several ways to build a regenerative relationship

with you and Earth. 

It all starts with meeting you

and visiting your land!  

Choose the Client Process (detailed below)

that fits your interests and needs. 

 
 

CLIENT PROCESS Rates + Steps

Regenerative CleanUps

With your preferences + style in mind, we trim, prune + shape your bushes, shrubs, hedges, + trees. We remove debris, deadhead, edge + mulch for low maintenance and high curb appeal. 

Mindful Garden Tending

Never "just weeding," we fully remove the un-wanteds, vines, and "invasive" plants by the roots, while watching for soil conditions and signs of disease.

Soil + Microbiome Health

The soil's health is our wealth. We can help you nourish your land with composting, testing, amending, and regenerating your living soil.

Step 1. Request a Garden Visit from the LadyBugs


Click here to complete our Client Intake Form. The LadyBugs will reach out to personalize your next steps!




Step 2. The LadyBugs Visit + offer a Service Proposal


During this Site Visit we will...

  • Listen to your needs/wants
  • Observe the land
  • Take measurements of beds, hedges, etc.
  • Count trees, bushes, plants, etc.
  • Collect notes for a custom service proposal

​​

Our crew will send you a customized EarthCare Service Proposal describing what we think your gardens needs and how we can help. We will negotiate the services you need at the rates you can afford.

We find the term "estimate" to be misleading. Predicting how much time or money a land-based project will take, is difficult, and often impossible. Often we find the industry standard is to over-estimate, to cover unpredictable charges, and then add time and fees anyway.

This Proposal + Agreement is a living document. It will change as we grow together, in relationship with each other and your land. As we interact and observe on site during work days, our awareness of what the land needs will increase and shift. We will only move forward on tasks with your approval and consent.




Step 3. EarthCare Clean Up Service + Rates


In our ethics, it is important to observe and interact first, before asserting our plans. A clean up day allows our full crew to come experience your property, get to know your plants and gain a first-hand awareness of the unique needs of your space.

$270 - $360 :: Small Space

$360 - $540 :: Medium Project

$540 - $810 :: Large Site

$810+ :: TBD Projects

We prefer to do a one-time clean up before starting any designs, plans or ongoing maintenance services. This way we can prepare your site to be well-managed within an accessible budget, and we get to know the land before committing to working it regularly.

Wildlife Habitat + Pollinators

Earth Care includes creating safe space for beneficial insects and animals, as well as encouraging native plants and pollinators wherever possible. 

Edible

Foodscaping

Growing your own food is one of the most important things we can do. We install perennial and annual food gardens, and love to help you manage them. 

 

Tree Care + Woodland Stewardship 

While vines appear beautiful on trees, they are deadly. We remove dead branches, sever vines and create environments where woodland creatures can thrive.

Meditation + Sacred Spaces 

Gardens provide sanctuary and peace. We are honored to create and tend these sacred spaces. Be it a meditation garden or a private reading sanctuary, we strive to bring your vision into reality.

Up-cycled

Materials

We love using salvaged, found, recycled and discount supplies. We like to pass that low/no cost on to you too, while we all strive to keep trash out of the landfills.
