How to create a mindful garden

6 weeks from garden chaos to garden calm

Where you're at:

You're struggling to know when and where to start with your garden.

You're looking for help and support to get started in your garden.

You've tried watching Gardener's World, asking your neighbour who gardens for advice, watching endless YouTube videos, scrolling and consuming gardening tips on Instagram.

But it’s just adding to the overwhelm and its not specific to your garden.

You’re looking for simplicity and someone to support you.

You’re feeling confused, like you don't know enough,  you're not feeling brave enough and not trusting yourself to get it right.

It's making you feel like your garden is a chore, making you snappy at home and jealous of everyone else’s gardens on Instagram and in real life.

Where you want to be:

You've actually got started in your garden.

You feel supported and confident.

You have all the skills and knowledge you need to keep growing your garden in a way that improves your wellbeing.

You’ve grown your own home-grown food and flowers and have complete confidence in your abilities to be more horticulturally adventurous.

You have the relaxing oasis of your dreams right outside your back door.

You’ve given yourself time, freedom and the opportunity to create a joyful, fun and peaceful life.

You’re less snappy with your loved ones as you have space to be yourself and forge their own adventure through life.

You no longer procrastinate when it comes to trying new things.

Hello! I'm Kendall Platt, The Mindful Gardening Coach

I help women who want to get into gardening for their wellbeing but struggle to find the time and headspace to get started.

As a trained social and therapeutic horticultural practitioner, I’ve supported over 100 time-poor women to create the mindful garden of their dreams through individual coaching, my group programme and in-person and online workshops and they’ve experienced incredible results:

- Actually getting started in the garden

-Feeling confident in their gardening skills to grow vegetables from seed for the first time

- Cultivating their creativity to redesign their front garden.

- Feeling more balanced and peaceful even when life gets tough

- Enjoying gardening instead of worrying about getting it wrong

- Spending more time outdoors connecting with Mother Nature and themselves

- Having somewhere to escape to, to feel free from the monotony of everyday life

- Feeling passionate, motivated and confident to go after what they want in life

- Bring more joy and fun into their life through their gardening adventures.

Paid up front the total cost is £397. Or you can pay in two instalments of £198.50

Why wouldn't I just pay someone else to design and create my mindful garden for for me?

You could absolutely do that. However, with the average cost of garden design being between £5-10k for a small garden project, working with me is more affordable. Plus you'll get all the benefits I wrote about in this blog.
