4-Season Garden Design Course

Welcome to my step-by-step garden design system especially for homeowners who want to create a unique and colorful landscape that shows off your personality and suits your lifestyle.

Are you struggling with how to pick the right plants for your landscape? Maybe you have a tree but don’t know what will grow under it. Maybe some of your plants died over winter and you have no idea how to pick something that will survive and ALSO look good in the empty space. Maybe you’ve purchased lots of books but it takes too long to look through them… and when you actually do, you don’t find the information you need anyway.

You are not alone. I felt the same way when I started gardening. And no matter how many books I purchased or blogs I read, I never found a clear-cut step-by-step answer to my burning question:

How do I design a unique landscape that looks great all year round?

Why is no one teaching gardening in a step-by-step way? It’s maddening that we have to plow through piles and piles of information and end up even more confused about what to do than when we started. I’ve even met trained landscape designers that still don’t have a process that they follow to get beautiful, consistent results.

Long story short… I took a winding, difficult road to creating a four-season landscape. I spent way too much money on the wrong things. I killed way too many plants (RIP to all of my casualties). I patiently waited for plants to grow, only to realize that I picked ones that looked like crap together.

I did this for years… ripping everything out and starting over… multiple times.

Finally, I began using the graphic design principals I learned in school to actually design my garden beds. That was when gardening really “clicked” for me. I know my journey seems obvious and straightforward. But, it wasn’t a connection I made for a very long time.

Once I did this, I was able to turn my gardens into my canvas. Garden design became so much fun and a unique way to express my creativity. I know that gardening is a hobby that will reward me for the rest of my life.

I want this for you, too. And I don’t want you to have to wait years, waste money and make all the same mistakes I did to get there. So, I’m teaching my garden design framework along with all of my secrets in this course! Step… by step… by little baby step.

In my 4-Season Garden Design Course, you’ll learn my framework for combining plants to create a colorful, unique home landscape that blooms all year long. Use the framework over and over again to improve your landscape, one “garden room” at a time.

My simple design system is easy, fun and suitable for all skill levels.

What to Expect

There’s not much information on landscape gardening for the average homeowner. Not knowing how to combine plants and create interest in all four seasons turns an enjoyable and rewarding pastime into a frustrating and expensive ordeal.

Even though you’re buying lots of beautiful plants, your garden may still feel like it’s missing that special something. No matter what you do you can’t get it to look quite right… and end up frustrated and defeated.

Or worse yet… you are too overwhelmed to even get started.

After you take this course, you’ll use my design framework to confidently design a beautiful, colorful garden that will bring you joy and a sense of achievement.

FINALLY understand how plants work together and the framework that makes it easy as ABC.

Who shouldn’t take this course

If you are looking for a set-and-forget garden plan and aren’t interested in how garden plans are designed, this course is not for you. You may be more interested in purchasing a pre-made garden plan for your landscape.

This course is not a quick-fix solution to a landscaping issue you’re dealing with. It’s a full framework to actually plan and design your landscape. So, if you’re dealing with a specific landscape problem, or just need to choose a few plants where others have died, this course is not the answer.

If you have any more questions, please contact me and I’m happy to give you more information!
