Cultivating Beauty in Your Landscape

There are about a million ways to make your landscape beautiful. It’s no surprise that just about everyone wants a unique and beautiful outdoor space and it’s easy to get caught up in a highly curated and Instagram-worthy dream.

As a garden coach and consultant, one of my main jobs is to ask good questions and listen to my clients and discern what’s meaningful and beautiful to them.

Cultivating Your Perfect Landscape

Save your harvest!

Harvest some seeds

Check your sprinkler heads and drip irrigation to make sure you’re not watering the sidewalk or street, and to ensure you’re efficiently watering the plants you want to keep growing!

Watch your watering

What has been thriving in your garden this month? Write that down, do some research, order some seeds, or dream about how you can make that happen.
