Consulting

This is a very popular and much appreciated service. Clients have the opportunity to make a list of all their grounds care questions, requests, and projects that need to be addressed. At the time of the consultation, Larry Iorii, the President of Down to Earth Inc. uses his 40 years of practical field experience to advise them on the best solution for their problems.

Also, Down To Earth, Inc.'s continued schooling and participation at national, regional, and local conferences means that our clients have access to the latest information. In addition, we have built an unsurpassed network of quality contractors to help cover our clients’ needs.

Here are a few samples of the most common requests, concerns, and questions.

  • Old landscapes that need an overhaul
  • Ideas for patio layout and type of construction
  • What type of plants can be used next to the front door, corners of the house, tree lawn, wet areas, etc; (advice on planting design, selection, and specific problems)?
  • When is the best time to repair or install a new lawn?
  • Explain the differences of sod vs. seed.
  • What part of the day and how much water does my lawn need to stay healthy?
