How Can I as a Garden Coach Help You?

Choosing Plants

  • Let me guide you in selecting plants that are not only beautiful, but also easy to maintain and resilient in less-than-ideal climate conditions.

  • Whether you are a new homeowner or seeking to replace existing plants, I can assist you with water-wise and drought-tolerant choices.

  • Rest assured, I'll recommend plants that provide year-around interest, particularly during winter when it's often challenging to find appealing options.

  • Further more, I offer the convenience of hand-picking plants alongside you at your local nurseries, ensuring you find the perfect fit for your needs and preferences.

  • If you have a landscaper, I am more than happy to collaborate with them, ensuring the chosen plants complement your vision.

Edible Garden

  • ​Are you interested in turning your dream of growing your own vegetables into a reality, but unsure of where to start? Would you like to expand your knowledge of herbs and explore the world of edible flowers? Discover how you can make the most of your gardening space by practicing succession planting.

Teach & Guide

  • Pruning and Trimming: Regular pruning and trimming help maintain the shape and health of your plants. I can assess the pruning needs of your plants and provide proper trimming techniques to promote healthy growth and enhance their appearance.

  • Watering: Proper watering is crucial for plant health. I can help you determine the ideal watering schedule for your plants based on their species and environmental conditions. This ensures that they receive the right amount of moisture without being overwatered or underwatered.

  • Seasonal Care: Plants have different needs depending on the season. I can provide guidance on seasonal tasks such as planting and transplanting, winterizing or protecting plants during colder months, and preparing your garden for the upcoming growing season.

Please note that I, as the sole proprietor of Time2Grow, do not provide design services. My focus is solely on garden coaching, plant selection, and guiding clients through all aspects of garden maintenance and care. . I recommend consulting with a qualified designer or architect for any design-related needs.

My Journey 


Maria Fox

Welcome to my gardening world! I am a passionate gardener dedicated to helping individuals create their dream gardens. With my experience and love for plants, I offer gardening services that are tailored to your specific needs and preferences.

My Gardening Journey:
My love for gardening started with a deep fascination for the natural world as a child in Sweden. In 2011 in effort to create job opportunities for youth, I started and ran a landscaping maintenance company, where I gained experience through hundreds of homeowner’s needs. I went on to complete numerous horticulture classes and volunteered at the Utah State Extension. Through volunteering in community gardens, I have not only gained valuable hands-on experience but also developed a strong sense of community and collaboration.  Over the years, I have honed my skills and knowledge through hands-on experience and continuous learning. I have studied and gained practical insights by working on various gardening projects, both as. This has enabled me to develop an understanding of plants and climate conditions.

Maria is awesome to work with! She took the time to understand not only what we wanted to improve in our yard but also the amount of time we wanted to spend in maintaining our yard and what our budget was for the improvements. So important! She then made suggestions that took into account all of these considerations. She is so knowledgeable about what kinds of plants work in our climate and where they will do best. We have gotten so many compliments on how nice our yard looks since we had her come and help us! I highly recommend her!

To say I'm a novice at gardening is an understatement. I've planted and then the next year I replant because everything is dead, no matter how much I water. Marie was so patient and kind with her advice. I have a large oddly shaped yard with terrible soil and on salty secondary water, so I'm set up to fail. she pointed out things she knew wouldn't survive and I was able to warranty them at nurseries so I wasn't completely out on those. then gave me advice on how to give my yard dimension and suggestions on plants that would not only survive but thrive. I also wasn't looking into fully grown sizes when I was planting so I had things that would overpower my garden beds but now I've swapped those out for appropriate sized perennials that will last for years. looking forward to having her back out when I tackle my next phases.

Maria patiently listened to all my ideas and concerns for landscaping my front yard, then advised me on what she thought would work best with my "vision". I previously tried to research that myself, but it seemed like all the plant/tree varieties I found in books were not sold in my area - what a waste of time! However, every plant Maria advised was, indeed, available at local Nurseries. She is very knowledgeable about which of those plants are hardy in general, and which of those grows best in my particular climate. She also gave me more choices for drought-resistant landscaping, something I really wanted. I moved from a much wetter area in the USA, and had no real understanding about the options and care of local fauna. Maria was very accommodating, and a is wonderful Garden Guru!
