What is an edible landscape?
Edible Landscapes are made up of fruits, vegetables, edible flowers, and culinary herbs. ELD designs and installs edible landscapes in raised cedar or stone beds, existing flower beds, and containers for any spaces. Each edible garden design is customized with the household's preferred produce. We provide the best quality plants and organic materials for every garden. Our edible landscapes are known for their unique colors and textures. Tired of critters running off with your fresh produce? Our staff offers custom, walk-in critter proof cages to protect your edibles from bunnies, squirrels, and pets. See our gallery for additional pictures of our critter proof cages (available in cedar and wrought iron).
We strongly recommend drip irrigation for every edible landscape. The edible crops enjoy a deep watering with no overhead spraying by sprinkler heads. We do not provide irrigation with our edible installations but we will be happy to refer you to an irrigation technician who can setup an automated drip system for your landscape.
Are you someone with a "black thumb?" Not to worry, ELD provides a full-service maintenance program for every edible landscape. The bi-weekly maintenance visit includes weeding, pruning, removal of dead plant matter, fertilization, pest control, disease control, adding necessary soil amendments, and harvesting (picking) the ripe produce & culinary herbs. At the end of each maintenance visit our clients will receive an "Edible Arrangement" at the front door with items that were picked during that visit.
The cost of edible garden maintenance starts at $75.00/per visit, depending on the size and quantity of gardens within in the landscape.
Edible gardens are grown year round! There are 4 seasonal transitions (spring, summer, fall, & winter) where the edible beds are changed out with new seasonal vegetables. Summer calls for items such as tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and zucchini. Fall is the season for root crops such as beets, onions, and carrots. Spring time is for snap peas, green beans, and potatoes. Don't worry, there is plenty to grow during the winter season! Winter calls for leafy greens, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. During the winter season, our staff constructs frost proof greenhouse structures over each garden. The structures are equipped with a frost cloth to protect your edibles from cold winds and snow.
