Garden site survey ( after you have purchased your package)

A garden design site survey is an initial assessment of the area in which the garden will be located. It aims to gather data such as the size and shape of the space, the existing features and obstacles, soil type, drainage, and the level of sunlight and shade. This information is then analyzed to help create a garden design that meets the client's requirements and suits the practicalities of the site. A thorough site survey is essential to ensure the successful implementation of a garden design project.

Garden Design Concept within 2 days

The garden design concept is to create a peaceful and relaxing outdoor space that seamlessly blends with the surrounding natural environment. The focus will be on incorporating plants and materials, utilizing sustainable landscaping techniques, and providing various seating areas and pathways for easy navigation. The overall goal is to create a harmonious balance between the built environment and nature, providing a calming and useful space for those who visit.

Choosing the right materials to build your garden

Choosing the right materials for your garden can make all the difference in its appearance and functionality. When selecting materials, it's important to consider the climate, soil type, and overall design aesthetic. For example, plants that can survive in hot, dry conditions will require different materials than those that need moist soil and shade. Additionally, the materials chosen should complement the garden's design, whether that be a modern and clean look or a more natural and rustic feel. Some popular garden materials include natural paving, concrete paving, porcelain tiles, gravel, wood, stone, and metal.

Garden installation costings of both hard and soft landscaping materials

The cost of garden installation depends on the type of materials used for hard and soft landscaping. Hard landscaping materials, such as paving stones and retaining walls, can cost between €25-€75 per square meter, while soft landscaping materials, such as plants and soil, can cost between €10-€35 per square meter. Additional factors that affect the cost include the size of the garden, site preparation, and labor costs. On average, homeowners can expect to pay between €11,000-€25,000 for a full garden installation depending on garden size.
