Don’t start Monday with a landscape blues feeling left over from the weekend.


You want to spend quality time with your family and friends outside when you have the opportunity and of course it’s important to feel connected and build memories together. Are you finally ready to make your backyard your own with some online landscape design coaching? Good enough to share? Reconnect to the best part of you – the part that loves being outside, sharing happy times with friends and family, inspiring kids, digging your hands in the soil or staring at the stars. Remember how good it feels to start your own adventure and make your senses come alive? Soothe, heal, excite or enrich yourself and those you love right at home. Your personal outdoor sanctuary is within reach!


Be efficient & successful by creating a vision & planning how to achieve your personal vision.


Waste time by feeling overwhelmed & trying to work out what to do and when.


How many hours and weekends have you already spent wondering how to make your backyard a great place to be?

You could spend many hours and weekends

researching images, styles, materials, plants and everything inbetween. You could guess and wonder how best to upgrade your landscape and garden. You could start with a contractor. But will they understand everything you need and help you develop an overall vision or do they prefer to specialize  in one construction area whether pavers, walls or planting?

You could hire an expensive professional and spend thousands of dollars for a detailed design with pages of drawings. But is that overkill before you have a clear idea of what you want? And how do you find a professional and know that they’re going to be easy to work with?

Not having a clear strategy can cost you many hours of wasted time and thousands of dollars.  More than you think. Our process is set up to help you conjure up your vision and clarify your goals and objectives, to save you money in the long run.

We offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not smiling, neither are we and we’ll refund your money.

Hi! I'm Lindy Hulton-Larson

After working for many years as a professional landscape architect on large scale projects in Australia and the USA, I decided to use my experience to develop a simple process & tools to help homeowners and families transform their outdoor living spaces.

Why? These spaces form the foundation of precious family memories and enrich our personal communities of families, neighbours and friends. That makes me smile 🙂 

Most “normal” houses are designed and built with zero connection to the outside. A huge missed opportunity!

You? You’re busy but you know your place and what will suit you. What memories do you want to build?

Look forward to hearing your story!
