Veggie and Herb Garden Planting and Seeding

Herb and Vegetable GardensDo you have or want vegetable and herb gardens? Our expert Gardening and Landscaping staff can create and maintain highly productive gardens for the home chef or community provider! No matter the size of your outdoor space, fresh herbs and produce are within your reach.

Personal Touch will consult with you to determine the variety of herbs and vegetables you would like to grow. Then, we’ll create a custom garden design to ensure all your plants will have the correct amount of sun, food, water, and room for mature growth. When planting, we prepare your veggie and herb garden beds with proper amendments to improve soil conditions and foster good health. Additionally, we can plant your vegetables and herbs with Mycorrhizae, a fungal organism that works symbiotically with a plant’s root base to increase growth at a cellular level. It works with most plant material and is really a remarkable plant stimulant.  Mycorrhizae acts as a natural and organic alternative to conventional fertilizer.

After planting, our Garden Maintenance Crews fertilize your herb and veggie gardens on a monthly basis with an organic produce fertilizer for healthy, hearty crops. We also stake and cage your plants as they mature to accommodate growth and provide proper support. If you’re regularly strapped for time, simply leave a basket out for our Gardeners and they will fill it up with your ripe produce at the proper harvest time, leaving you garden fresh herbs and veggies ready for mealtime when you get home!

Annual Planting

Personal Touch begins planting annual flowers in the month of May. We can custom design your garden beds, planters, and flower pots with a large variety of high quality annuals in your favorite colors and textures! If you are concerned with the amount of water it takes to maintain healthy annual beds, we have a wide variety of Xeric and water-wise annuals to help conserve water and save you money on your utility bill!

Custom Garden Installation & Soil AmendmentsAt the time of planting, we fertilize the soil with a quick release fertilizer to help jump start your annuals for rich color and optimal bloom production! Our Crews then fertilize your annual beds on a regular basis for continued brilliant color throughout the growing season. You can also request your annual flowers be planted with Mycorrhizae for an added boost in root growth and vitality.
