Coaching, Consultation & Fees
Each session is customized and efficient and here is how this goes:
We'll start by reviewing what you have and discuss what you want. This will be informed by how much time you have to spend on gardening - both for making improvements and for maintenance.
I can help you identify your plants and explain how to care for them.
I'll help you prioritize some immediate improvements you can make.
I'll provide some ideas to consider for new or existing beds, troubleshoot things that aren't working, and introduce some basics design concepts
I can teach you the skills needed to make the changes we plan for you. This can include edging, pruning, dividing, etc.
I can go to the garden center to help you select the right plants for your garden.
I can oversee landscapers implementing changes we discuss. Sometimes it's just too much to do yourself and it's ok to outsource some of it so you can do the fun stuff.
This broad range of services will meet you where you are and help you gain confidence in making improvements, better understand what you have and how to maintain it. It can also save you a lot of money on not outsourcing everything or overbuying plants, and also can save you a lot of work and time later, by avoiding mistakes.
Fees for coaching and consulting sessions Effective April 1, 2023
Winchester: $125 per hour (1 hour minimum for each session; pro-rated for additional time)
Because I am making house calls and travel time adds up, I charge $150/hr for surrounding towns of Winchester, including Medford, Stoneham, Woburn and Arlington (this includes travel).
Beyond this geographic area, I get compensated for my time to get to you so it's just the total time involved, at $125/hr.
Free bonus: I usually provide a short summary video of the recommendations we discuss in the first consultation. (Heads up: this may or may not end up on Instagram, TikTok, FaceBook or YouTube!)
VIRTUAL SESSIONS: $125/hr. Sessions are by FaceTime(iPhone) or GoogleMeet.
I can't easily teach skills this way but I can advise and consult. It works!🌺
My goal: to get you more comfortable. This will take the mystery out of gardening so you can start making your own improvements, save money, and feel great about what you can accomplish.
