Services Overview

I’ve broken my garden design process into steps and explained all of my services.


Onsite design consultation

This includes an initial consultation and site visit to your garden in the Aberdeen/Aberdeenshire area.

I will view your garden with you in order to establish your requirements. Together we can discuss and develop ideas for your outside space ensuring that they are tailored to your needs and meet your budget. In addition this is a chance for you to meet me before we progress any ideas into an Outline Garden Design.


Outline Garden Design

This is a colour bird’s eye view 2D plan with annotations of your garden design. This will be detailed enough to enable a builder or landscaper to create your garden from scratch. Fees for this service range from £700-£1100 depending on garden size.
These rates include a presentation and explanation of the design at your home. The following rate card should be used as a guide only and can vary according to specific requirements:

Small gardens (up to 300 sq. metres) = circa. £700
Medium gardens (up to 500 sq. metres) = circa. £900
Large gardens (up to 800 sq. metres) = circa. £1100

Fees will be agreed in writing after the Onsite Design Consultation and before commencing the design survey.


Planning stages

Structural plan
You may require more detailed structural drawings of particular garden features for construction or planning requirements. I can provide these as an additional drawing to the Outline Garden Design (typical fee £300-£500).


Planting plan
I can provide you with a numbered planting plan with relevant planting information for your garden design.  Typical rates would be £250-£550 depending on garden size.


Layout & creation

Plant selection
I can choose, arrange delivery and layout the plants in your garden.  Typical rate would be £200-£400.

Planting beds
I can plant the plants for you in your garden. Typical rate would be £25 per hour.

Project monitoring
I can project monitor the building of your new garden for you.  This would include finding and managing contractors and sourcing materials. I charge £30 per hour to put the building work out to tender and monitor the work of contractors.


Aftercare services

Maintenance plan
To keep your garden in peak condition I can provide you with a detailed maintenance plan for the plants in your garden. Typical rate would be £100. For smaller areas of your garden e.g. a bed, a maintenance plan can be provided at a typical rate of £25 per hour.

Maintenance service
I provide an after care and maintenance service for all gardens which I design. Various packages are available. The maintenance service would be provided at a typical rate of £25 per hour. This would include weeding, pruning, lifting and dividing of plants and replanting and providing advice.
