Simon was prompt and professional in getting a quote to me. He was amazingly helpful in fitting in the work
required at short notice which l really appreciated. The work was completed you a high standard, in less time than expected and any very minor concerns or issues were taken seriously and addressed. I would highly recommend his company.

We received a very thorough and professional service from start to finish. The plumbing problems were quite complex, and the
quote was based on an extremely careful and detailed examination. Joe found better solutions than another plumber who'd been round to quote earlier. We literally could not have been happier. Highly recommended.

We asked James to pop round and give us some ideas and guidance on our bungalow update. And he did
just that. His ideas were in addition to our and have certainly started the debate. He was practical in his approach (ours is a flip, so we're mindful of budget) and pragmatic in application, ensuring we maintain utility whilst achieving a new look for a dated property. I'd recommend you use James for a similar approach, and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

HAC Construction did a fantastic job on our garden and I will be using them again. A bit disappointed that
Plentific informed me their would be two men on the job as there only turned out to be one which went over our allocated time of 2hours and therefore we had to pay for an extra hour. Also I was also informed HAC do not specialise in gardening jobs, but would be more than happy to use them again.

Find a tradesman for garden design and landscaping

Finding the right tradesman for a garden or landscaping project can be a difficult process. You need to have confidence that your choice has the right skills and experience to suit your needs. Plentific can help you narrow down your search by generating a bespoke list of the best tradesmen in your local area that offer garden design and landscaping as a service. It also gives you quick access to customer reviews for each of your options to help you make the right choice.

What do you need to know about garden design and landscaping?

The most important thing to know about garden design and landscaping is that it requires a great deal of planning. You need to be sure of exactly what you want in terms of materials and new structures, and you will need to have a strict budget. This is where a garden designer can help, showing you what is within your budget and where you can save money.

You need to make sure the tradesmen you hire are sufficiently experienced and qualified when it comes to designing or working on your garden. They should be able to provide customer feedback from previous jobs, or even pictures of completed projects. You can also ask them to provide evidence of any qualifications they possess, or if they are part of any tradesmen organisations. These will help vouch for their skills, as such groups usually enforce high standards and codes of conduct for their members. Check that workers have Construction Skills Certification Scheme cards (CSCS), as these will prove that they have completed a CITB Health, Safety and Environment test.

Personal satisfaction is very important for garden design and landscaping work, so be sure that whoever you hire has guarantees in place in case you are dissatisfied with their work. You should also make sure they have adequate insurance in case of accidental damage.

How much does garden design and landscaping cost?

It is hard to give an ‘average’ cost of garden design or landscaping, because the price will depend on several specific elements. The cost of materials, what work is involved, whether you are adding new structures, your location in the UK and the condition of the site itself all influence costs. It is also likely that you will have to hire a skip. If there is inadequate access to the site this can also drive the price up, as it can prevent workers from using certain machinery. Services like garden cleaning and soil irrigation could cost over £200 each. Usually you should allow yourself around £100 per square meter at least when putting together the budget for your project.

That being said, there are ways you can save money. You can do certain jobs yourself, such as cleaning the site and disposing of waste materials. Part of the appeal of hiring a garden designer is that they may be able to save you money overall, so be prepared to listen to their ideas regarding your plans. For smaller projects worth around £12,000, a garden designer’s services will represent around 20%, though this percentage will decrease on projects worth more. Get multiple quotes before making your final choice as this will help you make sure you are making the most cost effective decision.
