Want to know where to start?
Easy! Every new project begins with a coaching session.
Just a Quick Question
30 minute coaching call - $85.00
Have you hit a wall and need extra hands? Have an unidentified growing object? Seeking some quick advice about a plant’s needs or behavior?
We all have a point where we need to ask for help. If you have a couple of quick questions or are looking to hire our crew for a one off project, this 30 minute coaching call is perfect for you.
Pick the brain of Vivant’s owner and expert gardener, Kasey Eaves. Ask her your pressing garden questions and gain insight into how to approach your growing space. Jot down all the notes you like. At the end of the meeting, Kasey will talk through how Vivant can help keep you on track, on budget and eco-friendly through the process!
I Need a Plan
1 hour coaching session - $150 - $250.00
Are you a new homeowner getting to know your garden space? A DIY-er who needs insight on your next project? A veggie grower who wants to maximize space? This 1 hour session is for you!
Show Kasey your growing space, share your goals and get expert advice on how to tackle your garden step by step.
For bigger projects, we highly recommend booking our 1 hour + notes option, for which Kasey will type up her tips into a helpful garden guide.
Kasey likes to make friends so she’ll ask to see photos of your work and cheer you on as you grow.
Feeling confident with just a chat? Choose our “No Notes” option if you plan to take your own notes during our visit.
If you are looking for further details and support, choose the option “With Notes”. After your consult, Kasey will type up her ideas for you to have on hand through all the stages of your project. Most clients end up with 5-6 pages of carefully-crafted, step-by-step soil, plant and maintenance notes designed for their garden success. Notes arrive anywhere from 7-15 days after your session.
After your coaching session, we can talk about more ways Vivant can help your garden grow!

Organic growth takes time. Vivant is still growing!
We are not your average “Mow and Blow”. Our small but mighty team does not use gas-powered machinery or a fleet of trucks. Edges and sidewalks will be hand-swept with good old fashioned brooms and elbow grease.
We specialize in dense perennials plantings and/or edible landscaping. If you are seeking services like lawn maintenance or tall tree pruning, we can happily refer to you other local companies that specialize in these areas.
At this time, we are only able to offer in person consults and ongoing garden care to the surrounding Chicago neighborhoods. If you fall outside this service area, take heart! There may be other ways we can help virtually. We encourage you to reach out.
