2016 was a great year for My Landscape Coach and we have you to thank for your continued support and readership. I’ll talk about some of the highlights below.
My Landscape Coach started the year getting homeowners excited about spring with the Countdown to Spring event. It was filled with tips, video tutorials and fun challenges. Once spring arrived I hit the streets speaking at community events, homeowner associations, home & garden shows and local TV shows like the Morning Brew. The New Mexico Plants Made Easy pocket plant book hit the shelves of local plant nursery stores and Green Building store reaching over 800 homeowners this year. In the summer, My Landscape Coach was honored to be published in Su Casa Magazine, where they featured a New Mexico Japanese Garden located in Nob Hill area of Albuquerque. One of my big goals for myself was met in the fall where I had the pleasure of speaking at the American Society of Landscape Architects National Conference in New Orleans. Shortly thereafter I released the updated version of the online design course, Landscape Design Made Easy. This course teaches homeowners how to designs their own yards through a step by step process allowing them to move at their own pace through videos, workbooks and a Design guide.
When I look back at last year I am humbled by how many people we were able to inspire. We provided homeowners in New Mexico with the tools they need to unearth their yard’s potential. We did this through the My Landscape Coach blog, ‘New Mexico Plants Made Easy’ plant book, Native wildflower seed bombs (I must have made over 2000 last year), speaking to homeowners all around the Albuquerque area and listening to their biggest landscape struggles. Each day, each week we worked to help teach homeowners to have a weed free, low maintenance, water wise and beautiful outdoor spaces.
My Landscape Coach collaborated with may groups this year including but not limited to the New Mexico Water Collaborative, the Desert Oasis Teaching Garden at Albuquerque Academy, Soilutions, Plant World, Well Woman Life, The Montessori School of the Rio Grande and Zia Elementary.
