Detailed Consultation

I realise it can be a big step to hire a Garden Designer and that is why I offer a 2 hour detailed consultation service which has proved popular for those clients who needed immediate solutions and guidance. As a paid service, it allows me to focus my skills on giving genuine and useful advice and allowing clients to either feel confident to start their own garden transformations, or indeed be fully appraised and confident about why they want to hire me and which of my services they need.

Consultancy Testimonial "We booked a two hour consultation with Sam last autumn and it was money extremely well spent. She astutely assessed both our garden's needs and our tastes and made the most sensitive, imaginative and practical suggestions, even drawing up a quick design sketch incorporating the discussed ideas. We were left enthused and inspired - with a clear idea as to how to develop our garden further. We wholeheartedly recommend Sam's inspirational garden design services. Colin & Marie-Christine Brazier"

The detailed consultation will start with a viewing of your outdoor space. I will ask you to outline your ideas and I will listen. I will then start to take a view on the direction that your garden space could take. At the consultation, I will guide you through the range of design services I offer and will also give you an indicative range of costs for your project.

If you hire me, qualified and competent garden designer you should be able to save money. I will take your brief – work with your ideas and budget and use my skills to make sure that you get a much better spread of cost over your project.

At the end of the detailed consultancy, we will be able to establish if any further design services are required. I will then write to you with a formal proposal for subsequent work which details associated fees. Any subsequent commissions* are reduced by the fee paid for the detailed consultation. (* with the exception of further consultancy).
