FAQ

Q.
Where do you provide gardening services?
A.
We currently cover the entire KC metro area, but have plans to spread to other cities in the future.

Q.
I don’t know how to grow anything…will Yum Yards work for me?
A.
Absolutely! Our “Yardeners” will walk you through all the steps to purchasing the products to build your garden. We’ll help you decide what to grow and we’ll be there all season long to tend to your garden and let you know what needs to be done when we aren’t there.

Q.
What do I need to provide?
A.
You will need to purchase the materials to build and fill your beds, any drip irrigation system you might want, fertilizer, and any plant supports that are needed. We can show you what and where.

Q.
What does Yum Yards provide?
A.
We provide an initial gardening consultation for $65 (payable in advance and credited to your account when you sign up for construction and/or gardening services) that will cover your backyard garden potential, the types of beds that can be built, and what vegetables that can be grown in your yard. After the consultation, we’ll assemble the garden you purchase, fill it with compost and other amendments. Then we will provide all plants and seeds needed to grow vegetables in your garden throughout the growing season. We will provide cover for early season tender crops. We will tend to your garden 2-3 times per month to do needed weeding and planting. After each visit, you will receive a complete garden update including pictures, video, instruction on what needs to be done in between our visits, instruction on harvesting your vegetables, and yummy recipes for you to use the bounty with.

Q.
How much does this cost?
A.
There will be a flat hourly rate of $65 per hour for garden bed installation, filling with soil, and installing drip irrigation. The seasonal gardening service will start at $125 per month with a seasonal contract through October for 1 – 10 square yards of garden. There will be a reduced rate for gardens larger than 10 square yards. After your consultation you will receive an estimate of all costs.
