Landscapers are typically involved in maintaining lawns, such as mowing, edging and grass fertilization. They do tree lopping, planting hedges and may perform work known as 'hardscaping’ like building a new patio or creating gravel walkway. They may also do “soft-scaping” clean up and general yard care. They can plant flowers. They generally use chemical pesticides.
Gardeners focus on plants, flowers, soil quality and garden-specific needs. A gardener does such things as planting, natural weeding, mulching, pruning, replanting, harvesting, watering, testing and amending soil, fertilizing, garden bed prep, watering and more. I can create gardens, choose plants, like native PNW plants, and provide knowledge on plant care. A gardener can also identify pests and diseases and choose earth-friendly ways to treat.
Lemmon Lane Garden is a licensed, bonded and insured Gardener and can help you start or maintain your garden. Want a Raised Bed? Design, Prep, Install Package available. My focus is on your garden, whether it’s a raised bed, vertical or container garden,

I prune small shrubs and bushes or remove if dead. I can provide new garden design and help with the Installation. I can even shop for you and recommend plants, mulch beds.
I accept cash, check and credit cards via Zettle.
Herbs are easy to grow and make a great starter plant. There are so many types and you can pick ones you like to cook with or try something new. Best of all they can be grown indoors and outside too, depending on weather. We recommend trying one of our Herban Planters which are available in a variety of sizes and containers.
I use organic fertilizers, compost, soil conditioners, neem oil products, soap solutions, neem oil-based products and diatomaceous earth to control pesty diseases on or around vegetables. I mulch and fertilize which helps control weed growth. I use companion planting, garlic, nasturtiums, marigolds and nematodes or lady bugs.
I specialize in urban gardening, with a focus on vegetable gardens. We have herb and salad planters and a variety of raised bed gardens such as perennial, salsa and tea. I also can plant your veggies or herbs of choice in your existing planters.
Perrenials return for several years, which is a great way to ensure a beautiful garden. They help reduce plantings and you can get additional bulbs for your garden. Annuals are usually a one time planting, bloom for the season and don't return. Most gardens use a combination of both types and also sometimes biennials, which last two years.
Based on availability and season choose from candles, mini live succulents, air plants, bath bombs, shower streamers, scrubs, foot socks, lotion bars tea, cookies, candy and seed sheets.
In the Pacific Northwest cold weather anytime between mid October to mid April depending on your zone. Seed packets will also tell you the best time to plant. For example, Federal Way in in Zone 8B last frost is usually by late March and first frost in early November. Be sure to check weather for your specific city and zone so you plant at the best time.
Watering three times a week for 15-20 minutes will usually be sufficient for a vegetable garden and will garner about an inch of rain. However always take into current consideration growing conditions and plant moisture levels.
Be sure to water as needed for the plant and season. I usually put my finger in about 3 inches to check for moisture. If a smaller pot, you can also check to see if the pot is lighter in weight. If dry then I water thoroughly until water runs out. You will get to know your plants and their needs.
In addition to helping your garden grow, I sell live cute potted succulents, air plants, terrariums, plants, and garden gear. I also offer eco-friendly soy candles and wax melts, natural body care products and self-care gift boxes and more. Check out my Gift Shop for more information.
I can provide a variety of small, medium and large planters in addition to raised beds. Raised Beds can be at ground level or elevated. Elevated beds are good for seniors and disabled gardeners. Container types vary from cedar, plastic, ceramic, bags, vertical, pallet and more. Or if you prefer, your planter. My goal is to create a garden with your needs and space.

Recycle, repurpose, reuse! Just melt any remaining wax in a low temperature oven, wipe out any remaining wax, and wash the vessel.

Depends on your gardening needs, you may schedule once per week, several times a month or once per month or once per year. For example if you want a garden planted and tended through the season you would at least need weekly visits but light weeding may be once a month or planting bulbs would be once or twice a year.
