Garden advice and consultation

Whether you already have a good idea of the possibilities for your new garden or whether you are wishing to improve on what you already have, there is a comfortable, good value solution that means you can take time to consider what you need for your garden.

The very popular ‘no strings’ Garden Consultation is a one-hour session for clients to be guided through options for their garden and to be given on-the-spot advice about their existing garden, including design or style, planting and construction as well as ideas and inspiration for future planting choices and styles, soft- and hard-landscaping possibilities and practicalities such as storage or parking and access.

The service is unique because, with a full assessment and recommendations report produced, it is much more informative than the usual ‘free’ consultation. The level of information given at this stage would, in other garden design businesses, come after a design has been commissioned.
