About Monique Allen


MONIQUE ALLEN, Founder & Creative Director of The Garden Continuum, is a master creator, interactive employer, and fierce industry advocate.

In over three decades, she has witnessed the landscape trade become extremely popular and commoditized which has inadvertently eroded the sustainability of our landscapes while undermining our ability to feel satisfaction from them.

As a lifelong gardener, business developer, and educator Monique has dedicated her career to reversing that legacy by learning and creating alternative approaches and sharing actionable information to spread a positive message about how we can all improve our land, our lives, and our professional satisfaction through Life-Scaping and compassionate business building.

We’ll let our clients do the talking



Monique has excitement to teach, learn and share. Combined with her passion she’s made them a staple of her company culture. Monique is a valuable resource for other landscape companies, leaders and entrepreneurs. As a former employee and now a new business owner, I am grateful for all that I learned while working with her!



I was feeling isolated and struggling to move to the next level. I needed a co-creation partner. Working with Monique changed my views on money, business risk, and growth. She has an unparalleled ability to listen! Her genius is to see the design beneath seeming disorder. I love having a seasoned entrepreneur in my corner!

My company needed an organizational chart in order to continue on our growth path. Monique had a clever way of teasing out my company vision! Together we created Job Value Propositions for each position, including the development of job titles and a reporting strategy. Do yourself a favor, start the coaching process NOW with Monique.



Spending so much time dealing with problems was killing my joy. Monique listened patiently, asked deep questions, and made me do homework! I felt heard, supported and encouraged. With the insights she shared, I was able to see my next moves. Monique’s mentoring continues to help me navigate hurdles and stay grounded in my joy!



My students see Monique as a role model, a potential mentor and a voice of wisdom in management and customer service. She speaks with reverence and joy about what she and her team do for their clients and that’s an important standard to convey to students studying Service Marketing. I would recommend her without reservations.



I really wanted to quit earlier this year. Had had it with the business end of the business. I have fallen in love with my business again and it’s all because of Monique. To find someone who TRULY understands who we are and what we do is just amazing. Monique has skyrocketed our business forward and honestly changed our entire lives. Looking forward to the rest of our sessions!


The value Monique brought to me during our work has been huge. She's helped me develop my three-legged stool approach to business. Plus, asking the question, "Why are you doing this project? What meaning does it hold for you?" has created an unbelievable connection for my clients. I love Monique's work. She is teaching exactly what I believe my future will become.
