The Schlessingers' main priority for their two-acre property in Pinecrest was to be able to harvest fresh vegetables and herbs all year long. So, an organic edible garden was the order of the day!
We planted a whole host of incredible edibles for Steve and Fabiola, including tomatoes, peppers, greens, cucumbers, melon, carrots, beets, bananas, papaya, tons of herbs, and a variety of fruit trees.
They loved bamboo, so we added six varieties throughout the property, including black, blue, asper, angel mist, Asian lemon and more. We also installed grape vines and rain barrels.
The client's reaction
The clients were beyond happy with the results. They'd always wanted a vegetable garden and they got the biggest in Miami! In fact, this has been the host garden for several of my gardening workshops.
The Schlessingers relied on my maintenance service for the first year, which included monthly checkups, fertilizing and grooming plant material.
