This popular service allows clients to quickly gain ideas and advice from a qualified garden designer for a low fixed cost.


We will visit your garden, discuss your requirements and provide advice and guidance in a focussed, 2 hour period.


Clients generally find this session invaluable through the ideas generated and inspiration provided. We also provide recommendations on local, value-for-money landscaping suppliers, nurseries, landscaping & plant hire contractors - often the savings from this more than pays for the cost of the service.
