I provide a full garden design service to guide you from the concept through to the reality. Whether it is a small garden or large, much can be achieved with a well thought-out design that suits you. Please read on for more information.
Step 1: Initial visit and design quote:
The initial visit is the first step in the process of designing your garden.
It allows me to meet you, the client, and discuss your thoughts and requirements for the garden in order for me to formulate a clear idea of what you want.It is also important to discuss what your budget is in order to properly cater to your needs.
I am able to take notes and photos of the garden for use at the studio.
This is also an opportunity for you to share pictures and ideas you may have gathered.
Once concluded I will then send you a post-visit report/brief that includes what has been discussed and thoughts on how we may proceed if the design was to go ahead.
This initial visit and report/brief is priced at a fixed fee of £80 + travel expenses if over 20 mile from my base of £25 per hour.
If you want to proceed further then I shall arrange to visit the garden again in order to conduct a full site survey and site analysis which you will recieve in written form. This is priced at £150.
On completion of the survey a quote for the full landscape design can be produced. Once the fee and my terms are agreed in writing then we can move forward.
First I will draw up a concept design which will show new features and the garden layout aswell as indicating what materials are to be used.
A meeting would then be arranged to discuss the concept design and answer any questions you may have.
Once you are happy to proceed I can produce the final plans plus any necessary construction drawings that maye be sent off to possible contractors.Under most circumstances I am more than happy to make minor amendments to plans, and these will be within the original fee.
Gardens up to 200 square metres: £600
Gardens 201-400 square metres: £600-900
Gardens 401-600 square metres: £900-£1200
Gardens over 600 square metres: Quoted individually based on measurements
However, if you have had a serious change of mind, or there are unforeseen circumstances for which I could not plan, then I will charge my usual design rate of £60 an hour for amendments.
