Garden Consultation and Design Service
Town and Country Gardens is a nursery that prides itself on sourcing premium quality plants and providing informed and friendly customer service. We also provide a professional garden consultation and design service for our customers. Our service ranges from solving existing problems to establishing a new garden.
Initial Consultation - $95
Our fully qualified consultant will meet with you on-site to assess and discuss your preferences and requirements. This may include:
– garden style eg. native, cottage, low maintenance
– plant choice
– landscaping ideas and requirements
– health check of existing plants
The consultant will discuss with you and assess the size of the project.
If the consultation is for a plant health check or small design projects such as pots, balconies or small courtyards, solutions and suggestions may be provided on the spot. Our consultant can provide you with a written report for works discussed and arrange a meeting in the nursery to discuss plant selection etc.
If a garden plan is required after the initial consultation, the consultant will quote for undertaking the garden design service.
Garden Design Service- $65 per hour
The consultant will draw a detailed garden plan to scale, incorporating your preferences for garden style, plants etc. You will then meet with the consultant at the nursery to review the recommended design and plant choices.
When the plan has been approved we will provide a quote for all design elements used such as plants, pots and garden features. Although Town and Country Gardens are primarily plant experts, our design consultant may be able to help you source advice on hard landscaping such as paving, garden retaining walls.
It is recommended that our professional staff implement the new design which will include:
– soil preparation
– positioning elements sourced by Town and Country Gardens
– mulching new garden beds and pots (such fee included in the quote)
Alternatively, should you wish to implement the new design yourself, we can assist with project management.
A complimentary follow-up visit will be arranged approximately six weeks after implementing the new design to assess the condition of the new plantings and to advise on ongoing maintenance. This complimentary visit is valued at $75.
If you wish to make use of this valuable and inexpensive consultation and design service, please contact us to make an appointment with one of our consultants.
Please note: Planting plans, designs and plant lists remain the property of Town and Country Gardens.
