What’s a Garden Coach?
A coach is a cross between a consultant, designer, and a landscaper. A designer will give you ideas and plans, but won’t do the work. A landscaper will come in and do the work, but won’t teach you how. A coach is the best of both worlds. I’ll come in and offer design and plant selection ideas and maintenance tips. Then I’ll come back and actually work with you to perform some of the tasks. A garden coach is for those gardeners who want to do their own gardening and landscaping, but need help getting started and knowing how to do specific projects. I’m comfortable working with absolute beginners to knowledgeable Master Gardeners. While I can teach you to do many tasks in the garden, I don’t do construction or large scale landscaping projects, architectural or formal landscape designs, or building projects. However, I can recommend people who can do those things.
- Consultation– We’ll evaluate your yard and make lists of ideas and projects.
- Coaching– We’ll take the list of projects you already have and work together as I teach you the skills to get the work done.
- Consulting and Coaching- After an initial consultation we’ll make a list of projects that I’ll come back and help you get started with. It can be a one-time coaching session or multiple sessions throughout the growing season.
- Community Garden Group or Club– Consider banding together to do group coaching session.
