Our garden coaching program is designed to launch you on a path of self-sufficiency.
Do you want to garden but don’t know where to begin? Have you ever wondered how to properly care for a plant, a tree, or a vegetable garden? Are you interested in building your own stone walls, patio, deck, or pergola? Would you like a landscape that’s appropriate to the style of your house but don’t know what that might be? If any of this sounds familiar, you’ll want to explore our full range of garden coaching services. Give us a call about our Garden Coaching in Grand Rapids.
We can teach you effective techniques and strategies to keep your existing landscape in top condition. Horticultural coaching services include tips on planting and transplanting, soil improvement, weed and pest control, plant identification, lawn care, growing edibles, and pruning. Our experienced (and fun!) coaches can also help with plant selection and placement for new areas, design and hardscaping suggestions, and hands-on training in landscape construction.
We charge by the hour with a 2-hr minimum. We recommend the client take notes or record our conversations for future reference. That said, our consultation session can be followed by our Garden Report that includes our ideas and recommendations as well as list of resources. Time charged for the report can range from 3-6 hours, depending on the scope of the project.
We also offer a customized Garden Calendar that details what to do in your garden every month. Time charged for the report can range from 3-6 hours, depending on the scope of the project. We can also come back whenever you need, as the seasons change.
