Consultancy

Earthscapes provide a garden consultancy service for both commercial properties and home owners alike.

Our consultancy services can save time and expense while ensuring the care of gardens and outside spaces. Each consultation appointment is followed up with a written, detailed report on everything discussed, along with specific recommendations so you have something tangible to work from. We can provide consultancy for:

Private Gardens

Having our consultant spend time discussing your garden can be an invaluable starting point.

There are many reasons why you might want a one to one consultancy session:

  • Assessing the most effective way to improve your garden prior to selling
  • Getting to know your new garden after moving house
  • After building works at your home to asses how you will use your new outside space and ways to make the most of it.
  • Finding out more about your existing plants
  • A maintenance plan and care for your plants, shrubs and trees. This can then be used by the owner or by any gardener at the property.
  • Sourcing and placing sculptures and statuary
  • Making your garden low maintenance
  • An overall seasonal plan for your garden
