Prices & Costs

Garden Design Prices & Drone Images Prices

The price of garden planning can vary greatly depending upon the size and complexity of the scheme. Of course the time it takes to plan a garden can also depending on the materials chosen and any personal preferences or necessary research that requires to be undertaken either by the client or designer – as you can see to get the perfect solution there are many different aspects to be considered. 

A landscape project should ideally be seen as an investment and to get the best value-for-investment having a designer look at the project is the first step, just like having an architect look at a potential building project in order to make the most of creating a house, or a builder look at a construction project to offer expert advice.

Prices vary upon project and within reason are negotiable depending upon several factors including site location and complexity.
