Every aspect of garden making is important and consultancy is key since it establishes priorities and helps to define your objectives. Out of the ideas that emerge, we crystallise a vision together, determining also what is feasible within certain constraints.

In a consultation expect us to be really curious about what inspires and what matters to you. Our ultimate satisfaction comes from creating a garden with you that has personal meaning, rather than simply ticking boxes to meet practical requirements. Along with this exploration, a consultancy also involves us taking note of the physical characteristics of the site: the aspect, exposure, soil type, surrounding environment, and so on.

Our consultancy fee is £95 for an hour and a half, within a 15 mile radius of Ashburton and Edinburgh. Beyond that, we may charge extra travel expenses. We are happy to have a phone conversation discussing some photos of your garden, before you take the plunge and commit to the consultancy.

Please note, enquiries from overseas are also welcome. We are fluent French speakers. Greenmantle Gardens is based in the South-West of England and in Edinburgh, however, we welcome enquiries from the rest of the UK.
