Your Garden Consultation
This is the first step in the journey to a stunning garden which you will enjoy for years to come.
Bob Mattei will meet with you to discuss your garden and its conditions. He will assess prevailing weather conditions, shade, garden aspect, etc. He will review your existing planting and discuss your preferred style with you. This first appointment will allow us to focus on your requirements and come up with initial ideas for you.
This Consultation is charged at £75* (inc VAT) but will be deducted from any subsequent plant order of over £500 (plus VAT)*. You are under no obligation to order plants from us.
* This charge applies to our local area in South Buckinghamshire, North Berkshire and South Oxfordshire. We reserve the right to charge travelling time for other areas. We will advise you of this at the time of booking.

Garden Report & Quotation
After the Garden Consultation, we will provide you with a short report and no-obligation quotation detailing the style of planting we recommend in your garden together with a plant allowance budget. This budget will detail the quantities of different types of plants, such as perennials, shrubs, climbers etc, but we will not provide a list of varieties. Once you have accepted our quotation, we will then discuss our planting ideas with you in more detail before we purchase anything for you. We will give you our advice based on the conditions in your garden and we will incorporate any of your personal preferences.
We can offer you a Garden Design with a planting plan and plant list but most of our customers prefer to put their budget into the cost of the plants themselves. With this option, we do not work from rigid planting lists as we prefer to choose the best-looking plants when we visit our network of UK nurseries to hand select your plants. We lay out these plants to design your borders in-situ so that you can get a visual feel of what the planting will look like.
All plants will be hand selected, labelled with the botanical name and transported in our specialist covered vehicles. Your plants will be delivered free of charge but a delivery charge will be made for very large specimens or trees which we are unable to transport ourselves.
Our quotation will also include all the materials and machinery required as well as the cost of our planting service. We will also give you a quote for a garden design for the hard landscaping if we think this required.
