What Affects Garden Landscaping Costs?
A number of factors influence garden design fees and these include the following:
Size – Generally the smaller the garden, the lower the cost of the landscaping, although this is not exclusively the case as there are variety of other factors which have a bearing on cost. This includes the number of different elements and intricacy involved in the design.
Elements – This depends on the type of garden you choose for your home or business, and overall effect of the design. Popular elements include patio areas, steps, decking, fencing, walls, integrated seating, raised beds, and children’s play zones. The addition of hot tub houses, built-in irrigation, screening (to ensure that your garden is not overlooked), swimming pool areas, terraces, planting, and the creation of flower beds and turf, among others, also affect the cost.
Materials – A variety of materials may be used in garden design, which ultimately has an influence on the overall cost. Materials vary wildly and can range from decorative concrete patio paving to wooden decking, sleepers, timber fencing, bridges, walkways and pagodas, mulch, coloured stones or gravel, concrete steps and integrated al fresco dining areas made from a variety of materials including marble or stone.
Plants – The type of plants chosen to complete the overall design, as well as the removal of trees, shrubs, established weeds, and existing plants, all affect garden design prices. While some gardens are stripped back and re-designed from scratch, others clients like to factor in existing features, such as steps, patio areas and raised beds.
Lighting – Many of our clients choose feature lighting to add atmosphere, colour, drama, and to ensure that the garden can be enjoyed well into the evening. Other favourites include water features, such as fountains, ponds, pools and sculptures that may be lit up at night.
Soil Preparation/Improvement – Landscape design costs also take into account soil preparation and improvement, as and where needed, particularly where the existing soil is poor, or new planting areas are required.
Creativity – Much of our landscaping involves problem solving, including clever use of space, making a garden fully functional, and incorporating existing elements such as buildings, walls and structures. This all has an effect on garden landscaping costs, and here at Constant Gardener our experts will discuss the various options with you, before we begin, so we can create the perfect grounds for your requirements, at just the right price.
