Garden Consultancy Visit

A Garden Consultancy Visit is more comprehensive than a simple Garden Advice Visit. And more focussed on the particular problem that you have than the Design Consultancy Visit.

You may have found a suspicious plant in the corner of your light industrial estate, communal garden or at the back of the cricket pitch. Perhaps you need some general advice on a number of gardening problems.

Plews can advise both commercial and domestic clients on a wide range of queries from plant health issues to legal requirements.  Although Horticultural Consultancy predominates, we are able to advise on hard landscaping and legal matters relating to your garden.


Garden Consultancy Visit general format: –
  • A brief is agreed and the fee for the work set
  • This would include pre-visit preparation time, for example reading through relevant documentation received from you
  • On-site is at least 1 – 2 hours in your garden, depending on the issue you have
  • Follow-up and research time
  • Written report or statement of opinion on the issues discussed and that need to be addressed

Garden Consultancy Visits and the associated follow-up documentation are offered for all sizes of project. This might be a single front garden, offices or communal grounds of housing developments. We will suggest solutions ranging from simple tasks that you can carry out yourself, to liaising with specialist firms.

Don’t worry about your garden, get in touch and see if Plews can help!

Depending on your interests, we may suggest that you sign up for our monthly eNewsletter to receive gardening ideas and tips.
