Home Landscape Visitation Program

Master Gardeners (MGs) offer landscape and garden coaching at home to New Castle County homeowners from April through October.  We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 growing season.  Check back in early spring 2019!


DEMGb&a-9Since 2005, MGs have coached more than 150 New Castle County homeowners to meet their landscape and garden challenges. This seasonal service is offered by expereienced, trained MG volunteers who address homeowners’ questions and problems ranging from establishing a vegetable garden, renovating lawns, refurbishing and enhancing landscapes, and using sustainable horticulture practices to support pollinators and birds, minimize maintenance, and select appropriate plants . Clients learn how their gardening practices can connect their landscapes to the ecosystem in which they live.











Some things that homeowners say about their visit:

“Time and care spent on reviewing each bed. Very precise, helpful suggestions on what to plant, what to delete.”

“Helped me understand what I had and develop a maintenance plan going forward.”

“All of my questions were answered and they were patient with my lack of knowledge. The time spent was also great!”

“Just having an expert really listen to me, offer suggestions and advise was so helpful, fun and educational.”

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018 growing season.  Check back in early spring 2019!  If you and your gardening and landscape challenges and plans could benefit from a coaching session at your home, request a visit by completing and submitting this registration form (new form for 2019 coming soon) by:
