Fees

Sarah offers a wide range of flexible design services, from a consultation for inspiration, to full design and contract administration. These services can be tailored to suit your needs and budget.

An initial 1 hour meeting to discuss the design services on offer and how they might help to improve all or part of your garden is free. From this meeting Sarah will quote for the design work as agreed.

  • DESIGN CONSULTATIONS: from £150.
  • PLANTING DESIGN: £30 per hour, from £150.
  • FULL GARDEN DESIGN: £30 per hour, from £500, to an agreed quote.
  • CONTRACT ADMINISTRATION: 10% of total build cost or £35 per hour, as agreed.
  • OTHER SERVICES: mentoring and maintenance, £20 per hour.

An outline garden design, excluding planting, can cost from £500, depending on size and complexity, with planting plans starting from £150. While improving your garden may be as simple as reshaping borders or re-siting existing elements, the construction of a complete straightforward new design might cost from 4% upwards of the value of the house.

All fees, sundry costs and included services will be set out before the start of a project, to an agreed quotation.


"Sarah redesigned our neglected and sloping garden. She responded to the needs and preferences of the whole family while providing interesting new perspectives. She surveyed the garden thoroughly and her design process explored a wide range of options. We are very happy with our final design."
