What can I expect from the consultation appointment?
Our surveyor will typically spend one hour with you to discuss your needs and offer their expert advice on landscaping your garden or driveway construction.

This meeting is to establish your desired style and use of the area, type of materials and budget to ensure the proposal is tailored to your specification. Following the consultation, you will receive a bespoke landscaping proposal which includes the project summary and breakdown of fees.

Is it possible to design a section of the garden?
Yes, it is possible to redevelop one element of your garden. This could include a large patio area, planting scheme, driveway, or garden structures for example.

Summit is also happy to create a design that can be implemented in stages.

Will I receive a design for my project?
Not every landscaping project will require a design, this will be discussed during your consultation meeting. If a detailed design is required as part of your project, a fee starting from £500 plus vat will apply. The design concept will include 2D drawings and a 3D virtual walk-through.
How much does a landscaping project cost?
This is question we are asked regularly and is difficult to answer, as every project varies in size, design complexity and material specification.

To offer an example, landscaping a medium sized garden may cost between £10,000 to £70,000 dependant on the design specification. Heavily landscaped projects can cost in the region of £150 – £250 m2 and a garden with mainly soft landscaping and a large grass area can cost between £50 – £150 m2.

Therefore, it is so important our surveyor fully understands your needs and budget expectations during the consultation meeting, to ensure we effectively tailor a landscaping proposal for you. In the interest of offering an attentive service to our customers, Summit Landscapes has introduced a minimum order value of £5,000.

Research has suggested well designed and beautifully constructed landscaping can increase the value of an average property by 5% – 12%.

Will you supply the materials and plants?
Yes, all materials and plants are provided by Summit unless requested otherwise. This is to ensure material specification, timely deliveries and plants are suitably established. Following installation, it is the owner / client’s responsibility to ensure plants are adequately watered. Our landscaping proposal includes all materials and labour.
