The information below explains the Garden Design Process and what to expect from start to completion of your design project
The initial design consultation fee is £50 plus VAT for our designers to meet with you at your home to discuss your requirements. We will ask you about how you want to use your garden, your style and any ideas you may already have.
To design a small garden costs between £1,000 and £1,500 plus VAT, a medium garden between £1,500 and £2,300 plus VAT and a large garden between £2,300 and £3,500 plus VAT. For smaller projects and garden makeovers please get in touch.
Once we have a good idea of your requirements we will visit again to measure up and spend time in your garden to get a feel for the space. Our designers will then produce a preliminary mood board together with concept drawings for approval.
Once these initial ideas are agreed with you we will then produce the master plan with all the fine details; materials, planting style and colours to produce 2D plans and if requested, 3D visuals. These will include planting and lighting plans.
The experienced team at out sister company The Essex Garden Co. can look after you and your garden build. We work together with the landscaping team, outdoor lighting expert, joiner, and their project manager. We will then arrange for all trees, shrubs and plants to be sourced and our team at Essex Garden Designs will plant your garden.
We won’t desert you once the build is complete. Our team of RHS qualified gardeners can help with regular maintenance, ad hoc garden advice or a once a year tidy.
