Advice, ideas and plans

Anchor 1

When you just need help getting started, or you need some ideas to tackle a specific issue

  • Do you want to make the most of your outdoor space but just don’t know where to start? 

  • Your garden just feels un-inspiring and lacklustre, but you can’t work out why? 

  • Perhaps you have a problem area, an unattractive view, or planting corner that you’ve been stuck on for a while?

  • You want to know how to improve your gardens resilience and encourage more wildlife?

  • You're worried about making expensive mistakes and want advice on your options?

A one-off consultation will help, with advice and ideas specific to your garden.


What you can expect:

Before we meet, I’ll send you a short questionnaire to help you think about the challenges you want to resolve, your ideal situation and some essential practical aspects of your lifestyle and your site. I will also have researched your site and area.   This is designed to help you make the most of the consultation time. 

I’ll visit your garden to discuss and explore the challenges to resolve, and look at specific aspects of your outdoor space and surroundings. The consultation visit generally lasts for up to two hours in person, and you’ll get a lot immediately from our discussion. 

Afterward, you’ll receive a follow up report with: 

A summary of the verbal advice given, 

Depending on the focus of your consultation;

  • Design and layout ideas - a sketch of your garden annotated with key points from the consultation e.g., showing  the best spots for different features like patios, greenhouses and planting beds;

  • The right plants for your garden - up to 10 plant recommendations, based on your site and visual preferences;

  • Features that will help you reach your garden goals - up to 3 garden feature recommendations (e.g. patio furniture, sculpture, wildlife homes, greenhouse, raised beds).

A consultation can be booked for a morning or afternoon, at a cost of £315. 


This service can also be carried out remotely for any site in the UK.
