When you decide to employ a garden designer, sometimes all you require is a design consultation. During the visit Andrew will talk through your requirements and show differing examples of previous work.
After a walk around the garden he will be able to guide you with what needs changing and give you some ideas about how to go about it. It may be that after this visit you have enough advice from Andrew to allow you to continue putting it into practice yourself.
A consultation is always used to take the required information needed to produce a master plan. If this is the case then the fee for this visit is offset from your master plan cost. Fees start from £200.00 per hour depending upon location.
Whether it is simply a planting plan or a full master plan, Andrew is able to provide you with a fully bespoke service. It could be that you need to redesign a planting boarder, extend an existing garden or perhaps you have moved into a new property and would like to make it your own.
Andrews 25 years of experience in design will make the process less demanding on you as the client. The first step is to take the brief to ensure the design is correct for your needs, then carry out a full site analysis to define the local style of the garden and house, this analysis will drive the choice of planting and materials. With this information a master plan of your garden can be created. Planting plans from £1000.00 and master plans start at £5000.00 depending on size.
