WHAT IS A GARDEN JOURNAL? WHY DO CUSTOMERS LOVE THEM?
Our garden journals are part maintenance calendar, part reference material, and part garden planner. They are an organizer that holds all the details you need to maintain your flower beds, lawn and garden in one place. The best part is that each journal is customized to contain details that are specific to the plants in your yard. No generic task lists or plant information. The pages are meant to be filled in with your gardening details, for your growing zone, all the way down to your specific plants.
There are many reasons our clients love our personalized garden journals. The feedback we hear most often is that they save a client time by putting maintenance instructions at their fingertips. Other reasons include increasing knowledge about plants and how to care for them, a way to track the changes in a garden over time, and as a reference manual for new homeowners maintaining a new yard.
We offer a set of online courses that provide the templates for the journal along with detailed instructions on how you can gather and organize your garden's information. The result is a gardening journal you will use for years, customized with details from the plants in your yard.

DOES GARDEN KEEPER SUPPORT AN ORGANIC APPROACH TO GARDENING?
Our company is based on the belief that gardening can and should be done without the use of synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. We have maintained gardens using an organic approach with great success and strongly encourage our clients to adopt similar practices.
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE GARDENING? WHY DO YOU SUPPORT IT?
Sustainable gardening is the concept of using gardening practices that cause no harm to the earth and its inhabitants while attempting to enhance it through backyard stewardship. It is always organic, but also addresses additional aspects of gardening.
Each tip, template, or training we produce is based on the principles of sustainable gardening. We believe we can have the biggest impact on the environmental challenges we face if we use and share these practices. We hope you will join our community and discover how sustainable gardening can help you create the garden of your dreams.
