    Landscaper or Gardner Consultations

    Gardeners

    Can I get an initial consultation with a gardener or landscaper before going having a landscape garden drawn up and eventually constructed? Does this usually involve a fee and if so, how much would it be on average?

    "No fee should be charged for a quote or any advice given there should be a no obligation quote put in place."

    "If I was quoting for the work I wouldn't charge but if you personally wanted the drawings, plans, and how much it will cost I'd charge otherwise I'd be doing a free day of work for someone"

    "Yes, you can get an initial consultation even if you have your own plans. This should not involve a fee and I think you will find most gardeners/ landscapers don't charge a fee. I certainly don't charge a fee. Chris"

    "Hi

    We as a company offer free no-obligation quotes, as some people like a guideline so they can then save for the project to be done in the future.

    I do believe some companies charge a fee."
