A garden design is a very complex and information gathering process which aims to interpret your ideas in the most creative way possible – it is more a service than product. Charges are based on my hourly rates (see table below) – you will be given a quote at the initial consultation depending on the number of hours I think it will take. Quotes will be given in writing after the initial site visit but for an estimate of the proposed charges it will be 5-15% of projected building costs.
