These meetings can vary in topic.  Here’s some examples of when my consultations have been called upon…

Are you planning a house extension? Your house extension is going to be / in the process of being / has been built and you realise there’s an impact on the garden! Planning / designing your garden yourself? Don’t know where to start / how best to phase your planned changes? Lots of ideas, but need some focus on a vision? You need some screening and want to explore how to screen something? planning a garden party? Need some wow factor? Don’t know what’s good to keep in the garden and what to do to enhance it? in need of clarity from overgrown plants!?

Other queries?

Maintenance including pruning; sourcing specific plants; planting advice

You may wish to carry out improvements over time to suit your budget and timescales.   I can help you to prioritise work in phases according to practicalities and seasonal needs of the plants.

I can also put you in touch with recommended contacts from my network which I have developed over a number of years.

How much does it cost?

Normally upto 2.5 hours is sufficient and costs €250 within a 10 mile radius of Ballina-Killaloe. Brief notes are provided by email with labelled photos where relevant. Should the meeting turn out to be shorter, a pro-rata fee will be charged. This consultation can also be delivered through Skype.

If after our consultation, you decide to go ahead with a Garden Design or one of my other services, your consultation fee will be credited on your final invoice.

Regular promotions are offered in February (10%) when you can take advantage of a discount.  See Facebook for these too.

For visits outside this area, travel expenses are taken into account, please enquire.

I can also provide garden design advice on an ongoing consultancy basis if that suits the project better.
