Frequently Asked Questions

How much does garden design cost?

We do free basic garden designs for customers considering using our landscaping services. If you are outside our work area or would just like a design, prices start at £200.

Do i need to know what i want before getting a garden design?

Can you work to my budget?

Our garden designers are experts in getting the best value for money. If you have a fixed budget, its best to let us know this at the start so we can make recommendations with this in mind.

How does an online garden design work?

After contacting us we will ask for some information about your garden including images, the address and any ideas you have for the garden. From there we use our design software, Google earth and your images to model the current garden (this is usually very accurate). We then model your new garden and give you an estimate and design.

This helps us to show you what is achievable. When you are happy with the design and price we arrange a site visit to measure up the area then we send over a quote and final design with all the details.

Can i use your garden design with another landspcaping company?

We reserve the rights to any design or estimates produced by us. If you would like to use them with another company or to build it yourself we ask for a one off £240 fee to buy the rights to the design to use with anyone you please.

The Acorn team were absolutely fantastic, from design to the work being done, everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful. The lads on site were very friendly, worked fast, and left everything clean and tidy. Our garden transformation is fantastic and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

I only leave reviews for things I really like, and I’m so impressed with the team at Acorn Landscape Gardening from initial enquiry through to complete garden transformation. David did a great design based on a few photos I sent him. He was great about the couple of changes I wanted to make and provided a new CAD drawing so I could get an idea of the finished effect. Ian conducted a thorough site visit, taking more photos and measurements. Already I had a sense of the kind of company they are. The crew doing the work (Zac, Terry and Warren) were fantastic -really polite and friendly and they worked hard in the blazing sun. They transformed my tired looking, overgrown garden into a beautiful space that we can enjoy for years to come. They also do a great job clearing down, so my drive looked better when they left than when they arrived. Apart from the evidence in the back garden, you would never know they had been there. Now to the garden centres to choose some nice plants 😊 Thanks Acorn team – highly recommended.

We have just completed our garden transformation and could not be happier with the results! The service from Acorn was incredible from beginning to end. The design process was really collaborative and Gaynor really helped bring our vision to life while navigating some complex requirements. Ian and the team worked through all weather conditions to create a high quality family garden for us. They came up with solutions to problems and suggested ideas that we hadn’t considered. We are very grateful and would highly recommend their services. Thanks, Hannah and Mark.

Acorn have recently redesigned our rear garden installing a new patio and also re turfing. In addition, they removed a concrete wall along the side of the house which has made such a difference to the look and feel of the area. We are so happy with the results and can’t praise Acorn Landscaping enough. Ian and the team worked so hard in all weathers and did an amazing job! We really love our new garden. Many thanks to all at Acorn Landscaping.

Our lawn was transformed from an area of grass, paving slabs and an invasion of Mares Tail weeds, into a glorious array of coloured Indian Stone paving slabs. Absolutely stunning. Grateful thanks to Ian and his team of professional dedicated workers. Highly recommended. Mrs. Jp. Fishwick and family.
