REJUVENATION of your garden or part of your garden with simple effective design, organisation, shaping, planting and updating of materials will have a huge impact and be achievable within a sensible and, if necessary, staged budget.

DAY consultancy is suitable for many gardens; working closely with clients who enjoy more involvement in their garden is extremely successful and rewarding.

 It is suitable in many instances:

  • NEW BUILD GARDENS, often bare and uninspiring they require a creative design and injection of well thought out planting.

  • ESTABLISHED GARDENS requiring updating, or reorganising to suit your lifestyle needs.

  • A SMALLER AREA WITHIN A LARGER GARDEN OR ESTATE.

  • SIMPLE DESIGN SOLUTIONS, either a whole garden or part of a garden.

  • INTRODUCING A NEW AREA WITHIN A LARGER ESTABLISHED GARDEN – including herbaceous borders, kitchen garden, cutting garden, rose or water garden.

  • INTRODUCING NEW PLANTING SCHEMES

  • REJUVENATING EXISITING PLANTING SCHEMES

  • PRACTICAL MANAGEMENT OF AN EXISTING GARDEN, you have a garden that is beyond your horticultural skills and would like to know how to manage seasonal practical jobs, tame an overgrown garden, or simply wish to be a better gardener. 

  • FOR PARTIES AND WEDDINGS – revamp your garden for a special occasion, adding planting, containers, floristry and more!

In the first instance I like to talk to you to discuss your garden dilemmas. It’s as much about relationships, trust and understanding as it is about design, plants and gardening.

I will then ask you to send me photographs of your garden before my visit; this is useful for me to have an idea of your space and any difficult areas.

We then spend a day together in your garden, surveying, walking and talking, accessing your current garden and listening to your objectives for design, planting or practical management of the space.

It is helpful to provide me with any ideas you like from magazines, the Internet or photographs; they help to explain your brief.

Working together we will then ‘build’ solutions, this will normally include a sketch plan, planting lists and a to do list of gardening and practical work.

I will produce a cohesive, workable schedule and plan, to progress at your own pace, with your own builder if necessary, creating stepping-stones to enjoying your ideal garden.

Your informal presentation package is re-worked at my office and returned to you for continued reference.

One-Day Consultancy starts from £450; this includes travel in and directly around the Shrewsbury area, spending a day (10am-3pm) with you on site and the required office time.

*If the scheme is complicated and you require further work, Lisa will be happy to quote for further project involvement. *Some clients require future visits; these will be charged at an hourly rate.
