Consultations & Garden Maintenance 

This consultation is tailored for the gardener who is looking to make improvements on a garden they already have. You can learn how to build better soil, get a larger quantity of better tasting vegetables, diagnose and treat plant deficiencies or diseases, deal with problem insects, improve your compost, fine tune your watering schedule, apply fertilizers, and so much more! We have the eye to assess your cultural practices and the knowledge to help you discover ways to improve them.  


Are you frustrated by problems with your irrigation system? Is your system inefficient, resulting in high water bills? Do you know how long you should be watering and when exactly you should be adjusting your watering schedule to account for seasonal changes? Water is our most important resource in the desert and it is necessary that we know how to manage it properly.  In fact, watering issues are a common cause of plant problems we diagnose.  We can help you design a new irrigation system, or make improvements on an existing one. Well managed and efficient irrigation systems help conserve our most precious resource, water!

Guided DIY Irrigation Packages

If you're a do-it-yourself kind of person, take advantage of this dollar-saving irrigation service! Our Guided DIY Irrigation Packages eliminate labor costs from your irrigation quote and can save you hundreds of dollars on new irrigation installations, if you're willing to do the work of installing it. Here's how it works:

  • A Thrive gardener will come to your home for an initial consultation to decide on a system that will work for your space

  • The parts for your system will be brought to you during a secondary visit, where a Thrive gardener will give you instructions on how to install it: what the overall layout is, where to dig your trenches, and how to assemble the parts

  • Once you've installed your system, we'll come out a third and final time to perform a systems check, help you program your watering schedule, and ensure you're good to go!

And don't worry! We're here for you throughout the process if you need help at any point.
