Design 

An initial design process is essential to the success of any productive garden. A comprehensive site plan will allow you to combine individual elements of your urban farm to create a cohesive, functional, and beautiful space.  A garden design will include scaled drawings of the space, planting recommendations, and material specifications and dimensions for garden elements such as: garden beds, pathways, trellises, irrigation, tool sheds, washing stations, greenhouses, seating areas, etc. Additional drawings including planting plans, grading plans, and renderings can also be produced, as applicable to each project. Design budgets vary depending on the scale and complexity of the project.

Installation 

Our team of expert landscape builders will translate your garden design from concept to reality. We create beautiful and functional spaces with sustainably sourced materials and pride ourselves on producing the highest quality, non-toxic garden structures possible. Structures are built from naturally rot-resistant woods, stone and other long-lasting materials. Our in-house builders construct most garden elements; while some specialty jobs (steel bed fabrication, large tree removal, etc) may be completed by our partner businesses.  All of our installations are built to the highest standards to create beautiful, productive, safe, and ecological outdoor environments.

Maintenance 

After garden construction is complete, we offer a range of garden maintenance services. Our experienced farm crew stops by your garden on a weekly or bi-weekly basis throughout the season. We bring all of the vegetable transplants, seeds, trellises, organic fertilizers, organic pest control materials and tools necessary to keep your garden healthy and attractive. You are always welcome to join us during our visits if you’re interested in learning more about edible gardening. We keep you up to date on what is happening in your garden with emails and newsletters detailing what is ready for harvest, what is coming soon, and other pertinent information on your garden.

What Our Clients Say 

Ravish [Restaurant], in the heart of Eastlake, has been fortunate to work with Seattle Urban Farm Co (SUFCo) to help us create a customized urban rooftop garden to produce exactly what our chefs need. They were instrumental in educating us about what to grow and how to produce the best yielding crops. They also took the time to show us how to maintain the gardens, harvest and turn crops over with the best results. Our rooftop garden fits perfectly with our commitment to sustainability and we couldn’t have done it without SUFCo!

I tried for several years to make a garden grow, to be able to eat our own food. Things always went wrong and it was a mess. A new strategy this year–try the Seattle Urban Farmer. A garden crew came early this year during a dry spell and improved the layout and dug some amendments into the soil. Later Hilary began to come here to plant starts and seeds. She has returned several times for maintenance. Now the garden looks great – the vegetable kingdom is in my backyard. We are eating fresh vegetables and barely staying ahead of the green and leafy things.

I truly enjoy working with all the people from Seattle Urban Farm Company. They are flexible, knowledgeable, encouraging, and educational. They made our organic vegetable garden the best part of our yard. SUFC helps make growing healthy, tasty, organic food so much fun. It wouldn’t be the same without them.

Seattle Urban Farm Company recently built and installed nine raised beds for our garden on Phinney Ridge. In what seemed like no time at all, they removed our existing sod, constructed nine attractive, well-designed beds, filled the beds with organic planting material and when finished, cleaned up remarkably thoroughly. Throughout the whole process, we found Colin and his crew to be professional, considerate, efficient, flexible and good-humored. The final cost conformed to the original estimate and the project was completed on schedule. Seattle Urban Farm Company took our boring front lawn and turned it into an attractive and extremely usable growing space. We are already reaping the benefits of their efforts in the form of healthy pea, asparagus, cucumber, lettuce, kale, tomato and herb plants, with plenty of room left for more planting. We could not be happier with the work done by Seattle Urban Farm Company.
