Combining Gardening with Design

I am a professional graphic designer and a garden lover. It didn’t take long for me to realize that all the design tricks I used at my job could also be used in my garden! So, I created my own unique DIY beginner landscaping system that easily combines gardening with design. It’s so much more fun than just plopping random plants in the ground and hoping for the best.

Courses & Trainings To Unleash Your Inner Garden Guru

Trying to design your landscape, pick plants and make it all flow together can be overwhelming. But, it IS possible, even if you don’t think you have a green thumb.

You see, gardening is a SKILL. Just like anything else, you have to learn and practice to get better at it.

But the tough thing about gardening is that the practice you need (& mistakes that go with it) can set you years back.

So, I’ve created courses and trainings will help you at different stages of your gardening journey. All of my trainings provide clear cut, step-by-step answers on how to take the RIGHT actions that lead to results quickly. Because that’s what we really need when we’re starting a new adventure 🚀.

So, which statement sounds most like you?

My yard is a blank slate and I have NO idea what I want.

  • You’re feeling lost with no idea how to get started planning your outdoor space.
  • You don’t use your yard much right now and want to make the space work for you and your family (instead of just lining the edges of everything with little flower beds).
  • My Create a Garden Mood Board workshop will help you create blueprints to a clear, specific and implementable vision for your yard that you can DIY (or hand over to a professional).

I’m interested, but not ready to start a big project (yet).

Design Your 4-Season Garden course
  • You’ve been devouring books, articles and videos about garden design, but are frustrated that no one provides steps for “how” to actually do it (I was, too).
  • You’ve considered hiring a professional, but don’t want to settle for a cookie cutter landscape. How hard can it be, right?
  • My Design Your 4-Season Garden course will teach you how to design a unique landscape that looks great all year round.

This is a stress-free gardening zone (seriously)

  • We don’t break our backs with unnecessary gardening chores/maintenance. Instead, we create a plan and learn how to choose the RIGHT plants that will grow and thrive in our conditions.
  • We use plants to solve landscape problems like lack of privacy, too much maintenance, and even awkward layouts.
  • We strive to create our own unique, beautiful garden that will add value to our home, show off our personality and suit our lifestyle.
  • We believe that gardening should be a fun & relaxing creative outlet. If it’s not… why should we bother?
  • While what we do in own gardens is our choice, we are conscious that our decisions DO affect the people, wildlife and environment around us.
