Restaurant Patio gardens & maintenance
Most restaurants have at least a patio or court yard that can accommodated a useful size herb bed or edible flowers box. Planting just a handful of culinary or cocktail herbs can create a unique opportunity for your eatery to showcase the chef or bartender talents on site!Base culinary vegetables and herbs like radish, carrots, onions, garlic, chives, parsley, sage, oregano, mint and thyme can be grown in quantities useful to a restaurant kitchen.
Once Urban Dirt installs and plants your garden you may decide you need a bit of help along the way. We offer weekly, monthly and seasonal maintenance plans to work alongside of you or to manage the garden fully. (Pest management, water/irrigation, seasonal planting and education).
In some cases we do soil sample tests and micro climate mapping for optimum growing conditions if a larger space is available. SEE Mini farm garden below.

Commercial Micro Farm gardens
MULTI-BED PRODUCTION GARDENS
HOA's / Corporate Campus / Restaurants
As way to make your commercial location a "hyper-local" food source, consider building an onsite micro-farm garden. This concept is productive and can provide:
1) supplement seasonal produce and fresh herbs to your kitchen
2) add "green" value or boost a LEED program for an HOA community
3) add a niche option to a corporate wellness or nutrition program
In an urban commercial setting it is possible to situate 3, 6, or 9 ect. production garden beds. What to step-up your culinary impact, add a healthy lifestyle values to your corporate campus, or offer a unique green experience for home owners, then consider creating a micro farm garden for your location.
MICRO CLIMATE MAPPING $125
Determine where in your yard to plant edibles to be the most successful. Not everything needs to be in a traditional row by row garden. You can use micro climate mapping to create an edible landscape that both looks beautiful and is useful to your kitchen. Many plants thrive in unconventional spaces yet we are trained to think that vegetables and herbs need to be "off" by themselves.
Micro climate mapping divides the yard into zones then creates a list of edible plants that grow well in those zones.
You get the color zone map, the plant growing list along with irrigation needs and suggestions.
