Package 1: Ideas

The Ideas package is a one-hour consultation, during which our experienced garden designer will come to your home and discuss your garden’s potential. From there, we can suggest plant choices to suit your tastes and the key characteristics of your garden.

Price: £40 + VAT

Package 2: Developed

This builds on the Ideas package, supplying conceptual designs for your garden and presenting a rough sketch with the new concept. At this stage, we will also provide an estimate for the cost of building your garden. 

Our top tip: We advise that you provide us with a ballpark budget that we can take into consideration when creating a new concept for your garden. 

Price: £150 + VAT 

Package 3: The Full Works

The process of transforming your garden into your own personal oasis is easy with The Real Green Gardener and involves just 4 simple steps: 

Step 1 – Garden design consultation

The garden design process begins with a free consultation where we will discuss your garden's potential and the available options depending on your requirements and budget. 

Step 2 – Detailed drawings and site survey

Following the consultation, we’ll write up a client brief and work on the design of your new garden. A fixed fee is charged for the design. Head gardener Steve will present a design proposal and any changes can be agreed upon before the preparation of the final drawings and scaled outline plan. We will require one day to perform a site survey and analysis. 

Once the design proposal has been signed off, we can prepare the final drawing. This will then be presented, along with an invoice for the remaining balance of the design service and the cost of construction. Any additional drawings required (for example, elevations or construction drawings) will incur an additional charge. 

Price: From £1,500 + VAT (cost varies depending on the size of the garden and complexity of the design)

Step 3 – Construction (the exciting bit)

We’re happy for you to build the garden yourself or hire your own contractors but why waste time, effort and, most likely, more money hiring additional help? The easiest route for you is to sit back and relax as you let our experienced team build your garden for you. If you choose to go ahead with construction, we will put together a tailored quote for all work that needs to be done. 

Step 4 – Garden aftercare 

Once your garden has been transformed, we’ll ensure you know exactly how to care for your new plants so you can be sure they’ll go from strength to strength. Or, we can provide ongoing maintenance so your garden thrives!
