Garden consultancy

It can be challenging to know where to start when it comes to planning a new garden or re-sculpting an old one. If you want to put your own stamp on your outdoor space but would like a little help along the way, then I can help.

How does a garden consultation work?

A garden consultation at your property will tend to take 1-2 hours.

Together we will look at your garden and discuss your aims and objectives, as well as your existing concerns about the current space. I will come with lots of questions so that I can establish what you would like to get from your space – whether its a fruitful vegetable plot, some attractive wildlife-friendly borders or maybe a low-maintenance evergreen shrub border. You may just want to know how to look after your existing plants properly – we can make that the subject of the consultation, if you like!

From our discussion I will briefly outline options that I think might work for you and we can assess and review those on site.

After the visit I will produce a comprehensive written report with the ideas we discussed and send this to you to review. Any planting plans discussed at this initial consultation will be taken forward as a separate project.


Prices for garden consultations start at £200, plus mileage if more than 10 miles from Lennoxtown.

Other trades and services

While I specialise in plants, I can also put you in touch with, or oversee, the work of other trades that I recommend. This includes tree surgeons, Japanese knotweed removal specialists and hard landscapers. Please ask to find out more.
