Cornell Farm Services

We want everybody to have the garden of their dreams. Our experts can help make that happen for you at every step along the way.

Garden Coaching

Whether you want to revitalize your home’s curb appeal, lay out vegetable beds, or tackle any project in between, a garden coaching session from Cornell Farm is the first step in achieving the garden of your dreams. In this personalized 90-minute walk-through of your garden, one of our experts will work with you at your home to develop a plan for your outdoor space, generate on-the-ground ideas, and offer advice on plant selection, layout, and care — all for just $300.

With more than 18 years of professional garden design experience, our designer Bill Clodfelter is a fantastic resource for gardeners of all kinds, but especially those looking to create beautiful ornamental gardens here in the Pacific Northwest. (Browse past examples of his work on his website.) He offers consultations on Tuesdays at 11am and on Saturdays at 10am and 12:30pm.

For the lovers of fresh fruits, veggies, and herbs, we are excited to now offer Garden Coaching sessions tailored to edible gardening, as well. Our longtime kitchen garden lead, Cynthia DuVal, brings a lifetime of vegetable gardening experience to each session, and she has an abiding passion for helping DIY gardeners enjoy an abundant, healthy harvest. Her sessions are offered on Thursdays at 3pm.

To schedule your session with either one of our experts, visit us in-person or follow the link below. (We will reach out the week of your appointment to request photos of your space and get a sense of your gardening style and goals ahead of time.)

And as an added benefit, every Garden Coaching appointment includes a personal shopping session of up to one hour with a team member at the Nursery!


Driveway drop-ships of any size order within 10 miles of the Farm start at $79! More involved delivery and setup options are also available.

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, we expand to include Christmas Tree deliveries, which can include in-home setup of your tree. After the holidays, we can also pick the trees up and recycle them.


Bill and his team at Cornell Farm provide excellent planting services. They were prompt, knowledgeable and efficient. Even more, they were responsive and helpful after installation by answering questions and offered helpful hints that have kept my new trees healthy and thriving.

I am very pleased with the services that Cornell Farms have given. Having an experienced Landscaper who listened, offered opinions and gave expert advise was a real winner. Am I happy? Yah, you betcha.”

Our backyard had belonged to our dogs for 20 years. While a few lovely original plants survived, in all it was largely barren - packed dirt with only the largest and most hardy originals intact.

Not knowing where to start, I decided to try garden coaching with Bill.

Frankly, Bill is amazing.  In 90 minutes, he was able to develop a gorgeous design using a plethora of appropriate plants that I had never heard of.  His eye and his knowledge base are deeply impressive.

Loving the plan, we decided to move ahead with planting services as well. Throughout the planning and planting process, Bill's communication was superb.  The team that arrived was excellent; all of the plants were beautiful and they planted them with great care.

Four months later, our garden is thriving.  Our barren wasteland has become a lush oasis.

Thank you Bill and thank you Cornell Farm!

We had Bill do a consultation to help us figure out next steps for our landscaping. He identified areas where we could improve the aesthetics and instructed on how to properly care for existing plants. After implementing his suggestions we were thrilled with the outcome! It was great to do the work ourselves and save a lot of money.

We had an excellent experience working with Bill Clodfelter and Cornell Farms. Bill arrived at our coaching session with plans he had prepared based on the information we sent prior to our session. He refined them as we walked around the yard together, but his initial ideas were just what we were hoping for in terms of the new look we wanted for our front yard. By the end of our session we had most of the project planned. A few days later we met with Darla at Cornell Farms for a walk-thru to view all of the plants we were considering. Both Bill and Darla responded quickly and thoroughly to our follow-up questions, and within one month we had our old landscaping torn out and our new landscaping/irrigation installed. It's now almost two (hot) months later, and everything looks great! We highly recommend Bill and the folks at Cornell Farms, and will definitely return to them for our next project!


"We love our new landscape and want to thank you for helping us put it together. Also, Nathan and Cornell Farms did  a great job in the layout and planting. It looks great and is generating lots of compliments in the neighborhood. Thanks again!"
