The quotation, generally starting from £575 inc vat (for a landscaping/design plan for a very small garden - up to 100m²), increasing if a full garden scheme is required, to include;
- a site survey
- the option of 1 or 2 ‘initial’ concept designs (without planting or construction detail)
- a design/plan of garden to scale with full details of materials and supporting sketches, including lighting scheme if required
- an (optional) comprehensive planting plan tailored to design and site conditions
Construction quotations from my recommended contractors and suppliers are presented with the design, although I can liaise with your own contractor if required. The construction period generally lasts between three and four weeks.
