How do you keep the perfect garden? Maintenance and love, of course. Gardens require care year-round to maintain flawless plant vitality and attractiveness. Our maintenance experts routinely inspect plants for changes in health while hand pruning. Whether you have a manicured formal garden, a free-flowing drought-tolerant native garden, or anything between, Past the Gate maintenance services keep your landscape design in continuous top condition for you * and your guests to enjoy.

As of June 2023 we are now accepting non-construction customers for garden care.

Our team will come out to your home and do an evaluation on your current irrigation and lighting as well as a review of garden care needs and then provide you with a monthly maintenance estimate within 2 weeks of that visit.
