There are two types of consultancy available, the Garden Consultancy ($210) and the Design Consultancy ($375). Please read on to help you choose which service is right for you.
What do I get?
Your consultant will spend 90 minutes in your garden with you.
As a guide, this will allow you to cover one topic in detail or a few topics more briefly. Our fabulous consultants can answer most general gardening, horticultural and basic design questions and offer sustainable solutions to most of the problems areas we encounter in the garden.
Typical topics for Garden Consultancies include:
• Soil profiles
• Pests and diseases
• Edible gardening
• Plant selection
• Basic layout
What do I get?
Design Consultancies afford you 3 hours of the consultant’s time.
Each consultant has their own particular way of working, but as a guide you will get 2 hours onsite and an additional hour for preparation and / or summary work. This can include a pre-visit phone call and / or post-visit work on sketches / info.
The Garden Design consultancy allows a little more time to go through your ideas and concerns to formulate a plan. Our consultants can help you develop a strong theme or ‘look’ for your garden. Working with one of our fantastic consultants can give you the confidence to take the next big step of engaging a landscape or garden designer, architect or landscape contractor.
It is very important you understand this is a Design Consultancy, not a Garden Design service. Think of it as an opportunity to discuss potential design ideas in your garden with an expert. You will NOT end up with a garden design. You WILL end up with some great ideas and advice, and if you wish to take the next step to a full design you can discuss this with your consultant after the visit.
