A garden coach points you in the right direction and shows you how to get started. We’re here to help empower you to garden your best.
You want an experienced professional who knows a lot about plants and their care. Look for someone who has studied horticulture and landscape design or is a Master Gardener. Coaches who are good facilitators as well as communicators.
The coach will arrange a convenient time to visit you in your garden. They will answer your questions, offer specific suggestions for problem areas and advise you with anything else you need help with. For example, you may want tips on how to make your garden more low maintenance, more visually interesting, more environmentally responsible. The coach should prepare a report as a record of what was discussed, including specific plant selection and care, a pruning timetable, soil improvement recommendations—basically, a customized plan with useful information to help you keep your garden on track.
To get the most out of a coaching session, think in advance about your gardening goals, particular challenges, how much time you want to devote to gardening and any particular design or plant questions prior to the visit.
