Garden Coaching

Working with Konia has been a thoroughly enjoyable experience. She doesn’t do everything for you, but instead, she involves you in the process and coaches you through the various steps, allowing you to gain knowledge along the way. The experience has awakened a new interest for me and provided me with an enjoyable hobby. After years of avoiding the garden, I now can’t stay out of mine! Jackie H., Garve

Garden Consultation

I am delighted with all the help that Konia has given us for our garden. It’s a process that began last summer with an initial visit from Konia to my garden. Lots of ideas came out of that visit and a list of work required. Konia also provided details of local tradespeople who would do the work although we prefered to do it ourselves. In the spring, I arranged another visit from Konia to to make up a planting list. I’m very keen to have wildlife friendly plants in the garden and Konia suggested a selection of plants that would benefit wildlife at different times of the year. Once I was ready for planting, Konia visited again to place the plants. I’ve really enjoyed the whole process. Konia has been very encouraging and understands the type of garden that suits me. I now have a plan for my garden and I’m looking forward to watching the plants mature. Next years project is a pond (a garden is never finished!) and I’ll be asking Konia for more advice.  Sarah W., Inverness

Sophie’s garden

an 8 year old’s garden

Sophie is 8 years old, a keen gardener and my youngest client. In 2017 I was commissioned to create a flower bed for her, her own wee patch of paradise.

Here a drawing by Sophie of what she wanted from her garden

here the garden (Sophie’s bed) is being mapped out

The bed was then dug and planted up – once spring is here I’ll post more pictures!

Front garden transformation

After some beautiful planting ideas for our back garden, Konia did the designs for the front of the house.

With two paths leading from the front door, several planting areas and two grassy areas, Konia’s design is most imaginative and with her advise as to the plants that would work best in each part of the garden, the final result is fantastic.

We are so pleased. Thank you.

Before
after!

planting design

Having just bought a new bungalow with a garden on quite a steep slope, which we have had terraced, Konia has been truly inspirational in the choosing and placing of plants in this new garden.

Her knowledge of plants, their varieties and suitability is amazing. Her understanding of how plants work with each other for their colours and shapes and how they are going to look in a few years time when they are well established is just what we needed.

Thank you so much.
