Garden Coaching & Design
We are on a mission to start a homegrown food revival that regenerates backyards, small acreages, empty lots, and most importantly – lives!
I’m here to help you plan intentionally and work purposefully.
Creating and maintaining a garden can be a daunting chore! The saying “you don’t know what you don’t know until you know it” is especially true when it comes to new gardeners! It can be very overwhelming trying to understand all the components necessary to create and grow a successful garden. But, gardening is truly one of the best investments you can make to increase your family’s health and food security!
So, how do you create a thriving garden that is both productive and achievable for your lifestyle? That’s what I’m here to help you with! I’m dedicated to helping families take their first steps toward creating a healthy and sustainable garden… without all the overwhelm!
DIY, custom or turn-key?
Find the right option for you!
We offer several plug-n-play garden options, whether you want to DIY your garden or have the bulk of the work done for you. If you need help planning your garden space, we offer fully customized designs for a truly personalized garden. Or, use one of our turn-key garden plans to design your own garden space! You can also purchase our affordable, durable garden products. We offer pre-made garden beds and garden structures, like trellises and water systems! We even have kits to make it easier for you! All you’ll need to do is add soil and start planting!
Why raised beds?
All of our plug-n-play gardens utilize raised garden beds. Why? Because raised beds offer beginner gardeners the highest success rates. With raised beds, you can start growing right away with fresh garden soil rather than trying to amend native soil and compete with existing weeds. Raised beds also help maintain proper soil temperatures and can allow for better drainage – both of which are key for maximizing your growing season!
Hi! I’m Kaylee.
Gardener. Homesteader. Designer.
When I started gardening, it was to transform my family’s lifestyle and health by growing our own food. 6+ years later, it has transformed our lives! We now grow about 80% of our own food and are healthier and happier than ever.
After getting my permaculture design certification, I knew it was time to start helping other people take the first step towards creating their own sustainable gardens.
Gardening changes lives and I believe it will change yours too!

THE DESIGN PROCESS
Step 1: Discover your “WHY”
The first step of the design process is to understand your gardening goals and to become very clear about why you want to garden. We will consider factors that will effect your garden, such as your time availability and any limitations. All of these factors will influence your custom garden design!
Step 2: Site Assessment
Next, we will dive into all the little details that make your site special! We will observe things like sunlight, water drainage, elevation changes and soil quality. Measurements will be taken and we will gain a clearer understanding of how nature acts upon your site as we choose the most ideal location for your garden. We will also discuss resources that you may already have on hand that can be incorporated into your custom design!
Step 3: Your Custom Garden Plan
The most efficient gardens are the ones that best utilize all their resources by creating their own small ecosystems. Together, we will create a custom design for your garden that accommodates your desires, your space and your unique lifestyle!
You will also receive a custom “playbook” plan for your garden with step-by-step instructions tocreate your garden, whether you are building it yourself or using our pre-made beds & gardenstructures.
