What We Do
Your garden can become an extension to your home and living space, adding value and desirability.
A place to entertain, somewhere to relax at the end of a hard day, a quiet meal or a party. With careful design your garden could become the perfect outdoor room.
We can design and build a low maintenance garden, and to make it even easier we can then maintain your garden as often as you like. All you have to do is enjoy the space.
Whether it's a case of simple maintenance, a garden tidy up, minor remodelling or complete landscaping. We offer a full garden design and build service as well as a wide range of garden maintenance procedures.
Design and Build
How it works
We can help you achieve your gardens full potential.
We will arrange a time to visit you to discuss any thoughts / ideas you may already have. Talk about your budget, maintenance issues, ask what you intend to use the garden for.
We will show you some of our work as well as tears and photos of different styles: contemporary, traditional, formal, informal etc. So that we can achieve a good idea of the type of garden you are trying to create. If you have any pictures yourself of the type of garden you like then this can be very helpful at this stage. If not, don't worry as we have plenty of pictures which we can show you. This appointment takes between 1 and 1 ½ hours and is free of charge.
If you wish us to proceed to the next stage where we design your garden we then charge £200. This fee is taken off the total build cost if you commission us to build the garden.
For this price we would then measure your garden, plot existing points, levels etc., note drains, manholes, soil type, aspect and any visible problems. We would also need to take photographs.
We then go away and produce a hand drawn 2 dimensional image of a design with costs. We will then meet you to show you the design and to discuss details. At this stage we can revise the design twice at no extra cost. When you are happy with the design and if you wish us to go ahead and commission us to construct the garden we will finalise drawings, schedule for works and detailed costs.
Not included in the £200 design fee:
- Construction drawings.
- Architect drawings.
- Planting plan.
These can be arranged separately if required.
During the first few days of work the majority of building materials are delivered. So payment for these items is required before this time. We ask you to pay us for all materials one week before job commencement so that we can place the order for materials. At the end of each week we will provide an invoice for any work which has been done and ask you to pay it on receipt while we are working for you.
Unless there will be someone to let us in and out each day, we will need a set of keys to the house and any contact details, in case of any emergencies.
We want you to enjoy the build time of your garden as much as possible. So we source our building teams with great care. They will be polite and helpful at all times. They are reliable and trustworthy, and they will respect your home.
Dustsheets are laid through any parts of the house through which we need access. At the end of each day the dustsheets are removed and we quickly Hoover so that when you return from work you can live normally and safely.
Planting plans are charged at £250 depending on size of garden.
