Marni’s beautiful garden design was an early step in making the garden of my dreams. Ongoing garden coaching helps me to refine and develop my knowledge, skills, and space. I LOVE Marni’s completed design and our new edible landscaping! - Beth

Marni walked me through each step of the design process. I had been feeling a little overwhelmed and unsure how to start. She asked thoughtful questions about how I wanted to use my space, listened to my thoughts and questions, bounced ideas back and forth, and ultimately came up with a beautiful plan that is better than anything I could have imagined.
My favorite part about the design process was the imaginative piece. I initially struggled to conceive of how my yard could look, after years of arid grass with some flowers around the edge. Marni helped me to visualize curves, pathways, seating, and rock accents. The result is a natural-appearing food forest and a completely transformed space.
I LOVE Marni’s completed design and our new edible landscaping! I cannot believe how much change we were able to accomplish already. The new landscaping is beautiful, sustaining, and healthy. It brings me joy every day. We now grow a significant amount of our produce ourselves! My family is excited about the fresh, flavorful food. I was surprised that we even got to know more of our neighbors, as they came over to investigate our gardening efforts!
Garden coaching has been incredibly helpful. There are so many things to consider when planting. I have learned so much about what makes each individual plant grow successfully. I love learning from my own successes and challenges in the garden, too. Marni helps me to observe what is working and what is not working in real time, so that I can adjust my approach. I appreciate the customized teaching, professional observations, and shared decision making that flow naturally as we walk through my space. Garden coaching is high yield and a great value.
The written summary after garden coaching visits is exceptionally high yield. I appreciate that I can be fully engaged during our coaching sessions, knowing that Marni is scribing. I use her written summaries to later make to do lists, research suggestions, make decisions, and order garden items.
My garden and I continue to evolve and grow. Our monthly touchpoints help me to learn and support my garden throughout the changing seasons, as well as to define and accomplish new goals as they arise. Marni’s beautiful garden design was an early step in making the garden of my dreams. Ongoing garden coaching helps me to refine and develop my knowledge, skills, and space.
