personal gardener/consultant referral
I live in the Indianapolis area and I'm interested in finding a skilled gardener consultant (preferrably organic) I can work with to teach me how to address my ongoing lawn & garden needs, i.e. proper plant care, pruning of trees & shrubs, landscape design ideas, plant selections etc. I enjoy gardening but can't say I'm very good at it and it becomes overwhelming, frustrating and stressful sometimes for me. I like the idea of learning and doing it myself (except for big jobs) but I just need some structured guidance and instruction along the way. I think it would be helpful if I could find a consultant or mentor of sorts to work with me on my ongoing lawn and garden projects and maintenance. Anyone out there that can offer any suggestions or point me in the right direction? I'm not even sure what I should expect to pay for this type of service. I live just north of Indianapolis. Thanks!!
