Landscapes: Our approach to creating unique landscapes is simple: Get to know the land ... listen carefully to the property owner's desires ... use in-depth knowledge of the local flora to develop a custom-designed plan ... then implement that plan with the highest quality specimens and responsive, customized service.
Hardscapes: Hardscapes are landscapes that feature natural-looking stonework, timber and retaining walls to subtly enhance virtually any terrain, no matter how inhospitable it may seem to improvement. Our firm has designed and installed a wide variety of creative yet highly functional hardscapes in virtually every type of location.
Specialty Gardens: No matter what type of garden you might be thinking of, Bailey Farm & Gardens has probably created it. Semi-formal English gardens ... all-native Georgia plant gardens ... water gardens ... shade gardens ... children's gardens ... woodland gardens ... Japanese rock gardens -- the list goes on and on.
Whatever is in your mind's eye, we can turn it into colorful, beautifully arranged reality.
Habitats: With the abundance of wooded terrain and birds and wildlife in our area, it's no wonder more and more homeowners, commercial property owners, schools and community organizations want to preserve and/or create areas that provide natural shelter to benefit and attract a wide variety of wildlife.
These garden sanctuaries are also beautiful and tranquil visual settings as well. As an active supporter of the National Wildlife Federation, Bailey Farm & Gardens is quite knowledgeable in designing, creating and installing habitats that meet all of the NWF's guidelines.
Maintenance/Lawn and Garden Care: Customized maintenance programs for your residential, estate or commercial location can be arranged, providing quality care for your personal or business environment. Maintenance can include a variety of programs, such as weekly or bi-monthly lawn care, regular fertilization of your lawn, weeding, pine straw and mulch, regular clean up, pruning, seasonal color and more. Each customer¹s horticultural needs are assessed individually with attention to every detail.

Consultation: For some clients, tapping the expertise of Bill Bailey is initially the service they seek. Bill is available to consult on a variety of horticultural needs including the topography of a client's land, erosion problems, plant disease identification and remedies, unique garden designs, identification and cataloging of native Georgian plants already present on site, habitat creations and more.
Environmental Education: Bailey Farm & Gardens is a knowledge and horticultural resource and, as informal educators who love and care about kids of all ages, Bill and Julie Bailey increasingly are working with teachers, home school organizations, scout leaders, after school programs and other small groups to engage young audiences and adults in the wonder of the environment in which we live.
At Crabapple Crossing, as an example, we’ve worked with great teachers and the administration to integrate current curriculum and the wonderful outdoor classroom -- the Habitat -- that is available on the school campus.
Similar activities have taken place at Summit Hill Elementary and other learning institutions for Earth Week and Arbor Day Celebrations to name a few. We also serve as a field trip destination for local school groups and multiple Fulton County Parks & Recreation camp programs providing customized environmental education programs to fit the specific needs of a variety of audiences.
If you have any questions about these and other hands-on learning programs, or to schedule a field trip or to develop a customized program at your site or on our 27 acre nature sanctuary, please contact Bailey Farm & Gardens.
