  • Measure up areas if required.
  • Take photographs of areas if required.

After the Consultancy Visit:

We will write back to you after the visit with our planting recommendations for the areas we discussed. The plant prices are discounted by 10% for you. We will also include costs for composts and planting sundries and our services to prepare, set out and install the plant collection for you. If you prefer a more DIY approach you are welcome to order the plants from the nursery at the discounted rate offered. We offer a setting out service for you and/or a Garden/Planting design service, so you can locate plants in the right places if this is your preferred approach. Additional fees apply for these services.
