The Natural Garden Coach Services


PLEASE NOTE: My garden coaching services are on a little hiatus as I move back to Texas and start gardening in USDA Zone 9a! I can still be reached for inquiries though. Be sure to take a look at my Articles and Photography page here, and my Instagram page, too.

The Natural Garden Coach is here to help you attain the garden of your dreams, naturally.

The term "coach" should bring to mind a person who helps one achieve their goals. That's exactly what I want to do for you. I'm here to offer my gardening expertise, whether it's to suggest the appropriate plants for your situation and their care, boost your knowledge of how to care for your landscape in a sustainable, environmentally friendly way, or give you new ideas for just the right design and planting plans. 

The important thing to understand about garden coaching is that it involves a relationship. A relationship is formed between you and me. I'm there to help you meet and exceed your goals. I'm there to help you learn and together, as a team, we make your ideas come alive and your garden thrive. 

Although I'm versed in many aspects of landscaping and gardening, my specialties include:
  • Gardening for wildlife - the birds, bees, and butterflies
