How to find an affordable garden designer?
If you have a small budget, you might consider paying for a single design consultation with a garden designer, rather than full design services.
How much do garden designers cost?
Each garden designer will work differently and charge accordingly. We’ve written an article on garden design costs here. In summary:
For small projects, up to £12,000, the cost of hiring a garden designer can represent around 20% of your budget whereas for medium projects (up to £60,000) it can be estimated for 15%. This will likely drop to 10% for larger projects. Remember, designers fees should be offset against the cost savings they can provide and the additional value added to your home!
Some garden designers charge by the hour. Their rates can vary between £60 to £200 depending on where you are in the country. The designer can undertake the design and drawing work, planning and surveys, planting and managing construction as required.
How local does your garden designer need to be?
Here at Design for Me, we recommend that the ideal distance is less than 20 miles from your home. However, it’s not uncommon for fantastic projects to be born out of longer-distance appointments. In fact, sometimes it’s better to cast a wider net to make sure you find someone who you trust and is on your wavelength. Ideally you should try and find someone who
- is genuinely enthusiastic about your job,
- has the time and resources to set to work on it when you need them to,
- understands your brief and budget, and is confident that they can meet your expectations,
- understands your sense of style,
- is within your budget.
So, location is definitely a consideration, but we strongly recommend that you don’t simply use the garden designer closest to your house for solely that reason!
