Consultation and Coaching

Consultation sessions are personalized conversations intended to help clients develop clear and reasonable landscape design, construction or management goals. Garden coaching sessions take the process one step further by empowering clients to develop deeper relationships with their gardens through hands-on education in plant ID, gardening and pruning technique, irrigation maintenance and other aspects of landscape stewardship.
