We offer a variety of landscaping services from the simple installation of a patio to our own Design & Construction packages. Whatever your budget is, we will have a service to suit you.
Design and Construct Package
When necessary we can call upon local garden designers to offer that little extra flair to your project. Garden Designers do however come with a fee and you should set aside a proportion of your budget for this service, please call in the first instance if this is a service you desire.
There are many factors the designer has to consider in designing your garden:
You can have as much or as little input as you wish whilst the designer develops the project through it's various stages. We expect to turn around designs within 6 weeks from the initial visit. The service progresses to the construction stage which is overseen and managed by the designer to ensure quality control of labour, materials, project detail and continuity through to completion and sign off.
Costs. Unfortunately we cannot offer any costs until the designer has the project in an advanced design state. Each custom design is individual and unique to the customer, historically we find that custom design and construct projects within our operating area fall between £10,000-£50,000 with no upper limit, a rule of thumb from BALI (British Association of Landscaping Industries) identifies a figure between 10-15% of the value of your home as a budget for complete landscaping of your plot. Design fees vary with plot size and we will be able to fix a fee following initial visit, survey and discussion.
Visits beyond a 30 mile radius will attract a travel expense element fee.

Customer Assisted Design & Build Package
This service is for the customer who has a fair idea of what they want but would benefit from our knowledge of materials, planting, features and layout.
So you have a few ideas but need a little nudge in the right direction! We can help you plan your garden make over. But we need a little help! Our design team need to know what you can afford. This will set limits on the scope and features available within your budget.
It is often helpful to see how your project will look like following the works.
To achieve this we have an excellent landscaping software programme that boasts exceptional graphics. Just like choosing a new kitchen, you can see your garden project develop. We start with the basics, a full scale replica of your house and plot is entered into the software, add the features you wish to retain, add a new lawn perhaps (natural or artificial) add a patio, planted borders, steps, fencing, walls etc. Then dependant upon your budget you can add many other features or extend certain aspects such as a larger patio or another seating area, pergola, outdoor kitchen, water feature, trees, lighting, the list is endless but obviously tied to your budget. Best of all though all this done before a spade touches the ground!
Costs? a fixed design fee equivalent to the anticipated input of the designer will be advised following the initial visit (minimum £150 maximum £395 ). Construction costs will not be realised until you and the designer have agreed on the size and diversity of hard and soft landscaping. Historically and within our operating area costs for these types of projects fall into £8,000-£25,000 with the designer working to the customers advised budget.

NEW - Phased Projects Works
Research has shown that some of our customers often delay their projects, not due to affordability but due to cash flow. One of 2 scenarios follow;
Either way you are denying yourself that special garden space for you and your family's enjoyment
Now there is another option. No matter the size of the project, once designed and agreed you will have a fixed price project with your original material selection and contractor. It may take considerably longer but it will happen! You dictate the pace of the project to match the availability of funds. Rome wasn't built in a day!
Give us a call, we can design a package that suits your cash flow and allows your project to get of the ground and progress to completion as and when you can afford it.
