On Site Consultation

Sometimes it is hard to know where to start when creating or renewing a garden. We are always happy to answer any of your questions regarding your garden, however if you feel you need our undivided attention to discuss your garden, consultations are available by appointment.

Our Garden Consultations are not a formal design service and do not leave you with a drawn plan, but provides you with help from an experienced and qualified horticulturist. We can give suggestions on anything plant and garden related, with everything from what pest or disease is damaging your garden to what to plant to put where.

We encourage you to take notes and ask questions on soil preparation and improving, pH testing, mulching, pest and disease identification, appropriate plant selection and design ideas.

You can organise a time for one of our team members to meet you at your home or place of business to discuss your gardening needs and what you would like to achieve.
