Commercial Horticultural Consulting

Leslie F. Halleck, Senior Horticulturist. M.S., CPH

As a degreed and Certified Professional Horticulturist (ASHS), Leslie provides horticultural consulting to commercial clients such as greenhouse growers, landscape architects, design & build firms, landscape maintenance companies, and companies that create horticultural products. We support your work with site and plan review, plant recommendations, design enhancements and adjustments, maintenance recommendations and plans, greenhouse production improvements, grow lighting plans, product sourcing, technical copywriting, and product development support. Consulting can be as-needed or with ongoing monthly retainers.

Leslie can plug-in to work directly with you and your staff on your needs, or help you by communicating directly with your client. Leslie's extensive sales and management experience comes in handy. Sometimes when you need to tell your client "no, that won't work" it can be helpful to have a CPH to back you up. Conversely, when you need to sell a great idea or solution, a CPH's stamp of approval can close the deal.

Leslie takes a no-nonsense approach to horticulture; if you have a plant where it shouldn't be, or a lawn that's just not going to grow in the shade, she won't mince words about it and she won't promise you it can be fixed if she doesn't believe it can be. You'll always get direct and accurate advice as to action you need to take to get your project on track.

As a CPH, Leslie is also qualified to provide detailed reports that can be used for documentation, legal research or reports, legal claims, or expert testimony.

Consultations can be conducted on-site, in our office in East Dallas (near The Dallas Arboretum), or online or phone when applicable. Leslie's consulting services can be hired as needed or with an ongoing monthly retainer.  Leslie has a 2-hour minimum for on-site consulting services, plus travel time. Ongoing consulting is billed in 1-hour increments.

Jill Mullaney, Horticulturist

Jill is a degreed horticulturist who can help you with your consulting needs for standard-sized residential properties. Do you need help with planting recommendations or planting plans for your clients? Jill has you covered. Jill provides site consultation for general landscape issues, planting recommendations, pest and disease issues, seasonal color design plans, and planting plans for your landscape projects. Jill also provides plant sourcing services. Jill still works and provides recommendations with Leslie's guidance and review, so you can be sure that recommendations you receive from either of us are accurate and consistent. Jill also holds a pesticide applicator's licence and is well-versed in both organic and synthetic pest control approaches.

Consultations with Jill can be conducted on-site, in our office in East Dallas (near the Dallas Arboretum), or online or phone when applicable.

Jill has a 2-hour minimum for consulting services, plus travel time. Ongoing consulting is billed in 1-hour increments.

Fees vary by horticulturist. We'll provide you rates and proposals after we've had a brief introductory conversation with you about your property and your needs.

Sapho tomato

Ever wanted to grow a bang-up harvest of tomatoes, but just don’t know where to start? Or, perhaps you’ve tried growing tomatoes before with limited success. That’s actually very common with our climate and soils. If you’re ready for an in-depth workshop on how to grow tomatoes the right way, join me at NHG on 1/26 at 1pm.

Learn how and when to properly start your own transplants from seed, how to build your soils for tomatoes, using raised beds, how to time your crop , culture and care, pests & disease management and a review of good tomato varieties for our climate in the DFW area.
