Personal Consultations Anywhere in the World

In Person or Virtually


If you feel your garden could use a little professional advice I can help. With today’s electronics and services like Zoom, you can have a remote consultation with me from the comfort of your own garden. Anywhere in the world! If we feel personal visits should also be included we can discuss that as well.  Advice on care programs, pruning, training, soil health and more are all available during your personal one-on-one consultation. We set up a time at your convenience so it’s flexible. I’m known for literally building gardens from the ground up using sustainable methods that are integrated to work together without being a lot of hard work. Nature is the key!



Experience Counts


From 2011 until 2020 (When Covid hit) I was the exclusive rose consultant to Biltmore in Asheville, NC. During the time I helped transform the garden to sustainable methods and enhanced its appearance. This resulted in a World Federation of Rose Societies Garden of Excellence Award in 2017. I am also an Independent Consultant to Jackson & Perkins. Recently I consulted with the New York Botanical Garden reviewing and recommending new care protocols for their rose garden. While in Los Angeles I ran a rose garden care company that weekly maintained over 70 rose gardens. Over my 25 years in roses, I’ve has consulted and designed numerous rose gardens. This hands on experience is what I bring to your consultation.

Our association with Paul Zimmerman has been profitable and enjoyable.  The gardens, the gardeners and I are better for it.  Paul’s enthusiasm, knowledge and leadership have been invaluable to us.  I recommend his services to anyone looking for a consulting rosarian to assist in building, improving and marketing their garden.

Paul, Just wanted to share a picture of my AMAZING beautiful cottage garden you designed!!!! I come here each morning to drink my tea in the morning shade. It gives me so much peace and grounds me 🙂 Thanks so very much for your incredible eye and knowledge!

Garden Designed Remotely


“When I realized Paul Zimmerman, The Paul Zimmerman, was local to me I immediately reached out to seek help on a garden idea I’d been dreaming of for years. He came, mapped out an amazing garden plan with a greenhouse and set to work to make it happen. No way i’d have been able to get here without him. He worked hand in glove with me and the contractors to bring this dream to life.”
