Miriam Book - Garden Design Services

Garden Design Services:

I offer the full range of services that you would expect from a professional garden designer. It’s a “pick and mix” bar, I will do as much or as little as you want. I am happy to simply do a master plan and leave you to build it yourselves or to do a planting plan for an existing bed. Whatever I do I will give you an attentive professional service and be available for phone queries at no additional charge.

About Miriam Book Garden Design:

Being a Registered Member of the Society of Garden Designers means I have passed their stringent tests. My many commissions have ranged from country properties extending over several acres to compact town gardens, in styles varying from traditional to contemporary.


Garden Design Prices:

The variables affecting design price are:

  • Size of garden
  • Location of garden
  • Complexity of garden (are there lots of awkward corners, big changes in level, existing plants or structures that are to be retained if in garden or screened out if outside it?)
  • Complexity of brief
  • Budget for garden

Design can be priced as a percentage of overall build cost (as with architects) or quoted for as lump sums for individual items or an hourly rate for work undertaken. I usually quote lump sums for design work and an hourly rate for time on site

Prices start from a concept plan for a very small, very simple garden, - £300. 

Planting plans start from £250.  (Summer 2011)
