My experience of a laminate floor-laying job with Kevin and his team was excellent. He was thorough in his pre-
and post mortem, was very communicative with me through out the job and was very accommodating to 'changing circumstances' I incurred. The finished result was very good indeed, so I would thoroughly recommend Xpressworkforce to others. In fact I have :)

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.
