Border Design

If you want a design for only one existing or new border, or if you want to redesign a tired border, we also offer a border design service.

Border Design

As with the initial stages of a full garden design, we begin with a meeting at your home and garden, which we offer free if the garden is within a 10-mile radius of Sherborne. If you are enquiring for a garden outside this area, we will only charge travel expenses. During this meeting, we will discuss the border in the context of the rest of the garden and landscape. We will also show you examples of our work.

If you would like to proceed, we will return for a second visit, for which we charge by the hour, with travel expenses if outside a 10-mile radius of Sherborne, after which we will produce a Planting Plan, the cost for which will depend on the size of your border. To give you an idea, a 3m x 4m border will start in the region of £200.

The Planting Plan shows the exact position of all plants that have been selected. To accompany these plans, we will provide you with a Plant Schedule that contains a list of plants with sizes and quantities and a Maintenance Schedule, to allow you to plant and maintain them yourself over time, or hand to a nursery/planting contractor. I can also supply the plants at a competitive price.
