The initial consultation requires an onsite meeting to inspect the garden, discuss what you require and provide advice with respect to the gardening.

There is a nominal fee charged for the initial consultation of $120 including GST.

A proposal can then be prepared that sets out the recommendations and provides estimates of the fees to deliver the required services.


The quote is an estimate only and is provided to give an indication of the costs which could be plus or minus 30%. This is not a lump sum quote.


An indication of when the job could commence will also be provided as a part of the proposal.

The job will commence at the scheduled time and an invoice will be raised at the completion of the job that reflects the actual hours worked and materials supplied.


For larger jobs a schedule of progress payments will be provided and you will be invoiced accordingly.

Complete the get in touch box for your contact details and send us an email.


We will respond by email with an introduction and tentative date for an initial consultation
