​Working with new clients is not as easy as it might appear. All too often, the installed design that clients get is not what they wanted. Why? Because the person they met with didn't really listen.


Bobbie will outline her approach to the initial client meeting plus the ensuing discussions about goals, budget, the importance of soil amendment as it relates to successful planting, and phasing of the installation.


Copies of Bobbie's newly published book, "Garden Renovation: Transform Your Yard into the Garden of Your Dreams," will be available for purchase. The book is $24.95 (cash or check is preferred, but Bobbie can take a credit card).
