Initial Meeting

We arrange a meeting to discuss how to improve your garden given your needs and aspirations, the site and how much you would like to invest. I will be able to make some initial suggestions and give you a rough idea of the likely costs of the landscaping. This meeting is free.

Depending on the size and complexity of your garden and the number of plans and drawings required, I will give you a price for surveying and providing a garden design. The majority of designs I produce cost between 300 and 500.

Survey and Design

I will survey your garden and produce an initial rough plan to discuss with you before a final design is produced.

In surveying your garden I will take into account the following:

  • Aspect and levels
  • Soil type and condition
  • Existing plants
  • Drainage
  • Views
  • Anything else that is relevant to your garden

I will provide a final design with accompanying drawings, which can be presented to a landscaper for a building quotation. I have links with a number of landscapers who I would be happy to introduce to you or, alternatively, I can obtain quotes on your behalf.

Planting and Aftercare

I will be available for help and advice during the build and once the skips and cement mixers are out of the way, I will plant up the garden along lines that we discussed and agreed at the planning stage. Occasionally, my clients prefer to do their own planting, in which case I will merely offer advice if it is required.

I am happy to produce planting plans and advice on how to look after your garden. Alternatively, I can arrange to look after your garden on a seasonal basis, leaving you the relatively simple tasks of cutting the grass and looking out for dandelions.
