Like any living thing, a business has a life cycle and Urban Eatin’ Landscapes has reached a new stage in its life cycle. The co-op will be closing in July of this summer. Although the news is bittersweet, we take heart in the knowledge that, like compost, the breakdown process allows for transformation to happen, and for what remains to become nutritious soil and fertile ground for new growth. If you have seen our work over the years and dreamed of hiring us for a project, now is your chance. Beyond our existing projects, we will be accepting a limited number of new projects to be completed this season. Thank you for your support of our business. We are grateful for the community we have found and the inspiring work that has filled our lives through the seasons. We are looking forward to what the future holds.
You may still fill out a consultation request, as there may be several gardeners continuing some work past July, although this would be done independently of Urban Eatin'.
Urban Eatin’ offers consultations to help you make the most out of your yard and discuss how we can be of service to you. Our experienced gardeners will aid you in diagnosing problem areas and making the most of your space. We will follow-up with a summary email of our discussions. The consultation also serves as the first stage in hiring Urban Eatin' to create your new garden design, at which point we will carefully analyze your sunlight, soil quality, and, most importantly, your goals and dreams for your new edible wonderland! If your project is simple and straightforward (no design required), Urban Eatin' can follow-up with an estimate of the work discussed.
Consultations cost $80 (includes GST, payable online or by cash or cheque). During our busy season (April-June) we book several weeks in advance, so booking early is best (fall is actually the best time to meet, to prepare for the next season!). Allow for approx. 45-min to discuss the project. We prefer to meet during weekdays, but will do so in the early evening if you work during the day (let us know when you get home).
If we move forward to create a garden design or planting plan after the consultation, it will be personalized based on our conversation and site analysis. You may wish for a very productive vegetable and fruit garden, or a low-maintenance herb or native perennial garden. You will have a chance to review the garden design prior to any installation, ensuring it suits all of your needs. Design oriented consults are requested to fill out our Garden Vision form. The cost of design work varies based on the goals, scope and details of the project. If design work is needed after a consultation, we will offer an estimate for the design work at the end of the consultation.
After submitting the form below, expect to hear back from us within 1-2 business days.
