This onsite service is for clients that have questions or concerns but do not need a design or quote. Garden Coaching is great for new homeowners, transplants, or those that enjoy a second opinion from a landscape design professional.

This service includes up to 50 minutes of on-site walk through. Best way to think of Garden Coach is “we talk together & you take notes”.
