What should you consider before getting your garden designed?:
What do you want from your garden?
You need to think about who your garden is for. Is it for all the members of your family? If you have children, would you like a space dedicated to entertaining friends close to your home, and screened from a purpose built children's play area? Perhaps seasonal interest and colour are important for those parts of the garden viewed from your home.
How much time do you want to spend maintaining your garden?
The amount of time you can devote to your garden will affect the choice of plantings and therefore the levels of maintenance necessary to keep your garden looking at its best.
Which features in your current garden do you want to remove or retain?
Which plants, structures and hard landscaping features you wish to remove or retain in your garden's design will greatly influence your project's costs.
What budget are you thinking of?
We consider designing any size of garden, but the minimum fee for garden design is generally £300. The only limiting factor for us is your budget. The cost of your project will be greatly influenced by the complexity of your garden design, its size, the number of levels involved, the amount of hard landscaping required, and the type and density of your plantings. We ask clients to provide an indicative budget so we know how much hard and soft landscaping you can afford in your design.
