If you live in the Auckland area, an onsite garden design coaching session is an excellent way to figure out how to make the most of your existing garden.  It's ideal for the new gardener or hands-on DIY'er who wants some expert garden design advice but doesn't want or require a full garden plan.

Whether you're planning a property spruce up prior to listing your home for sale, or you want to improve your outdoor spaces for your own enjoyment, during the 'Coach Me' session we tell you what you can do to make your garden look and function better! Our lead designer, Kerry, will walk your property with you, exploring ideas, discussing landscaping options, and providing you with on-the-spot guidance, practical advice, and simple DIY garden improvement tips.

Following the coaching session, you can

  • opt-in for additional planting design help with a site-specific plant palette

  • or just proceed with your garden makeover based on the on-site discussions and the post-consultation 'to-do checklist' that Kerry will create for you following your onsite coaching session.

How soon can you visit my property for my coaching session?

Autumn and winter coaching sessions are usually scheduled a minimum of one week in advance. In peak season (spring and summer) lead times may be as long as 3 -4 weeks, so we advise you to book early to avoid disappointment.

You're welcome to give us a call to check lead times or book a slot before purchasing the service. 

Do I get a plan after my coaching session?

Landscape plans require considerable thought and time to prepare and therefore are not able to be included as part of the coaching session.  However, a checklist is provided to you as a plan of attack and a record of the ideas discussed.

Do you offer a free onsite consultation service?

Our lead designer's time is valuable and charged accordingly, therefore all consultations, coaching sessions and site visits incur a fee. If you'd like a complimentary chat, you're welcome to book a call back or just give us a call at your convenience.

If I live in Auckland, but outside of your definedĀ  'local Auckland area', can I still book an onsite coaching session?

In this scenario, just give us a call or email to let us know your address. We'll simply calculate the cost of the additional travel time, add it to the standard consultation fee, and if you're okay with the extra cost, we'll send you an invoice. 

If the cost doesn't align with your budget, consider our Ask-An-Expert online garden design consultation as an alternative.
