Costing a Garden Design

South Devon Garden Design

Sam Westcott Garden Design Devon Here's a quick look at one of the gardens that I designed this spring, it’s just entering the tender stage and before that process, I always run through a pre-tender estimate with my client.  That allows me to confidently assure the client that their garden will be to the specification they want and at a price they are prepared to spend.  There are no surprises.  I pride myself on creating bespoke gardens that represent value for money and always improve the property's value and resale appeal.

The pre tender costing allows for any modifications to the design to be made before the contract is let. Examples of design modification might be a smaller paved area, the use of less garden lighting (more cost effective fixtures),  a switch between paving products or a different type of raised bed.  A designer should have the experience to know how to drive costs down without compromising a super garden design.

This costing process is applied to all of my designs from a tiny courtyard to a 5 acre garden build.  The process is a fundamental step to ensuring my clients get the best product and finish appropriate to their budget.  It also takes a lot of stress out of a garden build.
