How it works
My consultations usually follow a five-step process:
- Initial phone conversation and quote
- Suggest client prepares questions in advance
- Visit clients home and garden for initial walk around, note taking and photos
- Answer questions and make recommendations
- Post-visit report
This may, of course, vary depending on the nature of your requirements, but it paints a picture.
For training of Staff and Individuals, please phone Peter to discuss your requirements.

Triggers and motivations
My garden consultancy isn't just for the garden expert. By no means. A Garden Experience, for example, may be a wonderful birthday or anniversary gift for a loved one, or a Garden & Wildlife Tour maybe something you organise as a family day out.
A house purchase can often be a trigger, where you want your garden to look it's best for prospective house buyers, or you would like to identify what's in the garden of your new home. Take a look at our Moving Home page.
You may also like your garden evaluated based on a lifestyle event. Perhaps you would like a more low maintenance garden and would like advice on the ideal plants which require minimum care, but give maximum impact - see also our Plant Sourcing page.
I am also often asked how a garden can be dressed using plants for an important event such as a wedding or summer party. Maybe you want a colour theme for the event, and need help planning in advance for the best plants to compliment each other and bloom at around the same time.
Whatever your need or requirement is, I'm sure I can help or at the very least point you in the right direction.
