A garden coaching session is whatever you want it to be.

Some clients have asked for

  • A walk-through for new homeowners to identify plants and work out strategies for future maintenance, expansion, or elimination of inherited plants
  • A written maintenance plan or plant inventory
  • Follow-up research – things like a list of plants for butterfly gardens, a recipe for encouraging moss, plant suggestions for sites that are wet, and pest management
  • Sourcing and purchasing plants – I can provide plants, take you shopping or make suggestions
  • Selecting and placing new trees – getting just the right varieties for the location and arranging for planting
  • New gardeners occasionally schedule a weekly private class for intensive hands-on education. Others schedule follow-ups with me a few times a year when they’re having difficulty with a garden task or are ready to continue to the next phase of their garden plan
