Hi GardenCoach,

I have just bought a house with a beautiful garden. Unfortunately, the mulch is rotting and infested with slugs. Everywhere i overturn the mulch, there are slugs, centipedes and caterpillars (and several bugs i don't know names of). Should I remove the complete mulch and put in new one?
Please help !!

Hi Janice - I am having trouble getting your e-mail address when I click your "e-mail me" link. Can you please e-mail me? I am interested in a consultation for my existing garden. Thanks.


Hi, I wondering what you would charge to provide a maintenance free design on a front and side yard. Currently the area has exisiting plants/shrubs that I would like to re use. I am having the old dirt totally removed and new soil brought in. Thank you, Myrna

Hello Garden Coach. For one reason or another I cannot use your "Email Me" link. Perhaps could you email me to my account? I'm interested in a quote for kid friendly garden design. Thanks!

I have 3 colmnas aspens i planted last spring, i have mulch over the bed , what should I use to feed or fertilize the trees?


I just planted Lime Light Hydrangeas. They don't seem to be doing very well. They get morning shade and afternoon sun. Should I be moving them to get less sun?

Some traditional types of eastern gardens, such as Zen gardens, use plants such as parsley. Xeriscape gardens use local native plants that do not require irrigation or extensive use of other resources while still providing the benefits of a garden environment. Gardens may exhibit structural enhancements, sometimes called follies, including water features such as fountains, ponds (with or without fish), waterfalls or creeks, dry creek beds, statuary, arbors, trellises and more.


Hi Janice, also having difficulties contacting you with the "email me" link. Would love for you to come do a garden consultation with me and am just wondering how to set up some time to meet. Perhaps you could email me your info? Thanks!


I planted three hollyhocks last year. They didn't have any flowers but they had a healthy growth. But this year they did't come back. All my other perennials are out and growing except these three.
What happened to them?


Hi Janice, great photos! Your tips are invaluable. If you or any of your guests need storage in their yard check out A great shed can compliment a fabulous garden. Thanks.
