What It’s Like To Work As A Garden Consultant

There are thousands of people in the world who are interested in gardening but don’t have the knowledge or skills required to build a garden. If you want to start your own garden, you need to find someone in your own community who is willing to teach and guide you through the steps of proper gardening. This is where a garden consultant comes in.

Garden consulting is a new type of work; it is not something you may come across every day, like a doctor, lawyer, or hairstylist. You may be curious about what it takes to become a garden coach or the services they offer. Here is a short guide to help you understand who a garden consultant really is.

What is a Garden Consultant?

A Garden Consultant is much like a gardening mentor. They provide advice and tips to beginners based on their growing location and garden setup. A garden consultant can also be a garden designer or landscaper, but what sets them apart is their approach to certain problems. When you ask your consultant to help with a problem, they look at things from a different perspective and ask different questions to help resolve that particular issue. When you hire a professional for a garden consultation, the main focus is on your gardening issue rather than your garden. When necessary, a garden consultant will look at your whole garden or vegetable garden layout.
