Let's Talk

Let me begin by saying, I get it, I empathize with you. You are about to engage in buying a service you probably know very little about. Not a very confident position!. Family, friends, and social media have exposed the many horror stories that can occur. In the examples below my intention is to demystify the cost of landscaping. 

The biggest mistake I believe people make is actually our fault!. Yes that's right. Most contractors will ask you two questions. What do you want and how much do you want to spend. Most people are good with generating a wishlist, but how are you supposed to generate a budget without knowing what the cost of anything is? At The Garden Wizard we aim to raise your confidence through transparency.
