Monique Allen Bio

Monique Allen, Founder & Creative Director of The Garden Continuum, is a master creator, interactive employer, published author, 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 the founder of the Life-Scape Method, a lifelong gardener, business developer, and educator, Monique has dedicated her career to reversing that legacy by creative 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.

In addition to running her own 7-figure business and publishing her first book, Stop Landscaping, Start Life-Scaping, Monique is also an active business coach, specializing in artisan branding, team building, curating a positive company culture, and succeeding as a woman in a male-dominated industry.
