“We want you to enjoy your garden - not be intimidated by it!”
(paving, tiling, brickwork, fencing, decking, shed bases - anything that isn’t plants - the ‘bones’ of a garden)
For over 90% of clients, a FREE initial consultation with one of the team from our partner company (Lancaster’s Gardencare) is all that’s needed for thoughts, ideas - and usually a Pinterest board (!) - to be brought together into a detailed scope of works.
With over 30 years’ combined local experience, the guys are pretty good at understanding what’s being asked of them and what would work well in any given space. That means there are usually no design costs.
For anything more ‘bespoke’, we have an in-house designer. Working on a fixed fee basis* (cost dependent on complexity of project), Jeremy oﬀers a full-service garden design consultancy and construction management.
He will produce an initial mood board and brief, moving to rendered design images, recommending a palette of materials; before producing a package of working designs and specifications.
*As a guide, the average fixed fee design cost for a garden in Walthamstow is around £450+VAT.
Jeremy is also happy to source and supply pots, planters, furniture, sculpture, features and other styling elements.
To get in touch with Lancaster’s Gardencare, email them here. Tell them what type of landscaping work you require, providing any photographs or drawings you may have (no matter how basic!) and a general idea as to budget. Links to Pinterest boards are helpful too!
(planting/soil conditioning advice; planting design/supply etc.)
We oﬀer everything from general advice on plants to detailed planting plans with full
Our extensive network of specialist nurseries and growers also means we can usually find whatever tree, shrub or plant you’re looking for, to any specification. This is a free, stand-alone service.
Jeremy sources and hand-selects all plants personally. On larger design projects, he will also attend site on the day(s) of planting, to position plants and brief the team.
If the plants you’d like are available at our own garden centre, he will usually already have been involved in the buying and quality control processes.
Fees for soft landscaping:
• Informal planting advice is usually free of charge (in the hope that you then buy your plants from us).
• Planting design schemes, plants lists and soil specifications are priced on an agreed fixed cost basis - average cost is between £250 and £750+VAT (it all depends on the complexity of the project and the work involved).
