Price List – 2017
Garden consultation (first half hour free) where I come visit your garden for the first time to get a feel for your space and discuss your initial ideas
Consultation Report / Garden Review
Starts at £220 – depending on size and complexity of garden. A consultation report includes initial recommendations for plants, garden structures, hard landscaping materials and basic description of initial design ideas with links to resources. The report is prepared after a second visit to your garden to carry out a soil test, note garden’s aspect/s, take measurements, photograph garden and draw a simple outline sketch. The report is emailed as a PDF and if required a follow-up visit can be arranged to discuss further.
Garden design concept drawings with overlays and private Pinterest board
Starts at £260 – depending on size and complexity of garden. An initial outline drawing sketched over photographs taken during a second visit to your garden. Drawing will include specific wishes of client and collaborative design ideas. A further meeting is planned with clients to present the concept drawing, to discuss and develop the design concept before a detailed and scaled garden design plan is produced. The concept drawings comes with a mood board and plants list to show the plants used in the initial design concept.
Garden design detailed and scaled plan
Starts at £480 – depending on size and complexity of garden. A detailed and scaled plan includes the overall design, garden features, plants and hard landscaping materials, resources, budget expectations and samples. Small amendments are included in this fee, however, a redesign will incur an additional charge. The plan is presented in person and once approved by clients the plan can also be laminated and emailed as a PDF if required.
Start at £160 each – depending on size and complexity of garden. Planting plans can be created for individual borders and whole gardens. Where there is more than one planting opportunity within a garden, a planting plan is prepared for each location and charged accordingly.
Planting plans include plants lists with details of each plant’s dimensions at maturity and growing conditions required to ensure healthy, long living plants. Clients can also receive an online care calendar with step by step, monthly care instructions for each plant in your garden. I offer my clients a discounted rate of £30 for the first year, normally £36. A login will be provided to your online garden, plants database, forum and resources.
£30 per hour – Judi will project manage all aspects of the garden installation. After the design has been approved and scale plans ‘signed off’ by clients I offer a hands-on service to oversee all project planning, team and sub-contractor management, regular visits to your garden to oversee work and keep project moving forwards. Liaison with clients and suppliers, organise deliveries, project monitoring, sourcing and purchasing plants stock and landscaping materials, equipment hire and budget management.
