Turn Your Passion for the Garden Into a Profitable Profession

Since 2017, Gardenary has trained nearly 700 gardeners to start and grow their own garden consulting businesses throughout the United States, Canada, and across the world. Graduates have created dozens of new gardens in their own towns and communities, consulted with hundreds of clients, and created 5- and 6-figure businesses, often in their very first year of business.

The Garden Coach Society provides thorough and hands-on training for gardeners at all experience levels to start a profitable business doing what you love and helping others learn to garden too.

Our mission at Gardenary is to make the garden an ordinary part of life for everyone, and our passion is to help gardeners create profitable businesses that can accomplish this throughout the world.

Garden Coach Society opened my eyes to a whole new way of creating an income doing what I love...none of the other courses I've taken have been as comprehensive as Garden Coach Society.

The Landscape and Garden Industry Is Growing Fast But Something's Missing

In 2021, Americans spent nearly $100,000,000,000 on landscape services. That's 100 billion, with a 'b'.

During that time period, American's also spent nearly $50,000,000,000 on garden products like plants, pots, and fertilizers.

That adds up to a huge industry, worth around $150 billion per year.

And yet, if you ask most of the people in your town if they know how to garden, how to keep their plants alive, or how to make the most of their space, what do you think they'll say?

We've got a guess:

"I don't have a green thumb."

This is where YOU come in.

Garden Consultants Bridge the Gap Between Goods and Services by Educating Their Clients & Supporting Their Growing Success

There are three ways you'll ensure your clients' success in the garden as a Garden Consultant.

First, as a Garden Consultant, you get to help your clients before they make their garden purchases. You teach them the best practices for garden design and garden set up. You help your clients start their garden right the first time, saving them the frustration, overwhelm, and expense of starting the wrong way.

After you've helped your clients with proper garden set up, you then get to support them by teaching them what to plant and when to plant it. With your own local gardening experience, you have more advice that can help your community than you'd think.

YOU are the local gardening expert and by understanding your own unique climate and location, you can save your clients the headache of bad timing and failure in the garden.

Finally, once you've supported your client through their garden setup and the timing of their plantings, you have the opportunity for an ongoing support role by consulting with your client on a regular basis throughout both the planning and growing seasons to help your client build consistency of gardening a little bit into their everyday schedules.

Gardenary Helps Gardeners Like You Start & Grow Your Garden Consulting Company

As our founder, Nicole Burke, started Rooted Garden, Inc. in 2015, and found that the demand for her services far exceeded her ability to meet it. In just one year, Rooted Garden, the company Nicole started out of her Houston backyard, grossed more than $100,000 in revenue. And continued to nearly double in size every year after that.

While Nicole met her Houston clients' needs, she began to hear from gardeners around the country and even across the world:

  • Can you teach me how to build a garden company the way you did?
  • Can I come and intern for you to learn what you're doing?
  • Do you have a training program I can buy to help me start a business like you did?

All these DM's and messages gave Nicole an idea: to create a complete training system based on all she was learning in growing Rooted Garden.

So, in 2017, Nicole founded Gardenary, Inc. and welcomed the first set of students into the Garden Coach Society.

At first, the Society was small, training just 35 gardeners in its first season.

But Nicole quickly saw the success of the Society—how gardeners in all parts of the country and even across the globe had joined the Society, started a business from scratch, and grown it to 5 or 6 figures in just one year.

Over the last four years, Nicole's added new courses to the training program, trained Gardenary consultants to provide additional support and guidance to the Society's students, and helped create dozens of very successful new garden consulting businesses, many of which have surpassed the initial success of Rooted Garden, by making more than $100,000 in their first year of business.
