Our services

Earth Designs operates a comprehensive range of garden design services catering to a variety of garden needs in the Essex area.

Whatever your circumstances and requirements, we are confident we have the service for you.

Our range of services is as follows:



This garden design service is FREE to anyone within a 5-mile radius of the Earth Designs offices in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. The service involves a 1-hour site visit by our designer to discuss the client’s requirements and the potential for their garden.

Over 5 miles there is a mileage charge for a 2-hour consultation:

  • £100 plus VAT between 5 and 10 miles
  • £130 plus VAT between 10 and 40 miles
  • and for further afield please enquire

This consultation is usually enough to spark some ideas for you. If you decide not to proceed to the next stage of the garden design and build process, all chargeable design consultation clients will be left with any concept drawings and notes produced during the consultation. We regret that free 1-hour consultation clients cannot be left with the concept drawing and notes.

Following on from the garden design consultation, this service includes a full site survey, scaled design drawings, visualisations, planting scheme, and a spiral bound presentation including a detailed quote for construction (based on Earth Designs project managing). Every design is tailor-made to the client’s specifications. This service starts at £600 + VAT for a basic front garden design, with average costs around £1200 + VAT for a full garden design. Should the client wish to commission a garden build based on the design, we will refund the cost of the design off the cost of the full build (conditions apply).

This usually follows on from a design package, and is a top-to-tail service from concept through to creation. Wherever possible, all work is completed ‘in-house’, including hard landscaping, fencing, structural design, planting, and water features. Other services, such as tree surgery and electrical installation, are out-sourced to specially selected professionals. A senior member of the Earth Designs team will oversee the project at all times while work is underway.

The total price of the build will be marked on the quote supplied in the design package. We are able to schedule work according to the client’s availability and budgetary requirements by completing the project in stages if required. As this service often entails a complete redesign of the space, and each space is unique, prices will vary dramatically. As a guide you would normally be looking at a minimum of £8000 + VAT for a reasonably basic garden build, with average costs between £15,000 – £25,000 + VAT. However, we are happy quote for any landscaping job, no matter how big or small, and this is not dependent on the production of a design.
