If you are interested in employing a garden designer how does it work?

What happens when you commission me?
When you call me in to look at your garden this initial meeting is FREE of charge. 

Once I have received a written confirmation that you wish to commission me, I will return to the garden and carry out a site survey and take the measurements.

From these I can produce a base plan of the plot and start the design process.  This is usually a pencil sketch design which the client can agree before a masterplan is produced.

It may be that you don't feel you need a full design and are just looking for some advice about how to improve your garden. It is possible to engage me on a CONSULTATION basis to come in a look at your garden and advise you.

What should you budget for a new garden?
A new garden is a considerable cost on an par with installing a new kitchen or redesigning your house.  The garden should be considered as an investment and will add value to your property.  A well designed and maintained garden makes a property more saleable.

It is reasonable to expect to pay between 5%-10% the value of your property on a new garden. (Obviously this is a guide amount and will depend on the properties location and size of garden relative to the house)

Therefore, it is a good idea to commission a garden designer who will help you to realise the type of garden you want and save you making costly mistakes.
