How to create a mindful garden
6 weeks from garden chaos to garden calm
Where you're at:
You're exhausted and looking for help and support to create a relaxing green space right outside your back door. Somewhere you can go to replenish your energy after a long day.
BUT you haven’t got time to make it a reality on your own.
You’ve tried reading all the home and garden magazines, created endless Pinterest boards with ALL your ideas on but it’s just adding to the overwhelm and you’re not sure if any of them would work in your garden.
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.
You’re looking for simplicity and someone to support you.
Where you want to be:
You’ve created your dream mindful 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 garden and life.
You’re less snappy with your loved ones as you have space to be yourself and forge your own garden based adventure.
You no longer procrastinate when it comes to trying new things.

How much will it cost to create my mindful garden?
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 (before the cost of plants), working with me is more affordable. Plus you'll get all the benefits I wrote about in this blog.
