I offer a range of garden design services tailored to suit every project and budget.
My services fit into four main categories; garden design, planting, project monitoring and consultancy. You may want me to work with you from the initial consultation right through to overseeing the construction and planting of your new garden. Alternatively I can create a design that you will be able to construct and plant yourself. You may simply want me to redesign or rejuvenate a border or offer some advice on the plants that would work well in a particular part of your garden. However large or small your project and whatever level of involvement you want in the process I will be able to help you to create a garden that you will enjoy for years to come.
Whichever service you opt for I will work closely with you to ensure that your finished garden reflects your personality, suits your lifestyle and works for you on a practical level.
I will arrange an initial meeting with you at your home to talk about what you want from your garden, whether that’s a peaceful haven to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life or a functional space for entertaining. All aspects of how the garden should look, feel and work for you will be explored. I will take time to listen to your ideas and find out about your likes and dislikes. Every project is unique to the individual client so this stage of the process is essential for a successful design.
This initial meeting usually takes about two hours by the end of which I will have a clear idea of what you require so that I can prepare a document clearly outlining my proposal for the project, details of my fee and the services I will provide. There is no obligation to proceed further at this stage. A fee of £115 is charged to cover time and costs but this is refundable if you commission any of my services.
My fees are determined by the number of hours work that will be required of me and can vary for each design depending on the size of the garden and the complexity of the project. A firm quotation and full terms and conditions will be provided in writing following our initial consultation.
