Hi
Do you need a designer too? Or just a landscaper?

Hello - not sure I know the difference? Wanted someone to do the complete job - clear the land, recommend a planting arrangement (& the plants) and then plant them.

Does that make sense?

Cheers, Paul.

Well landscaper would do the hard landscaping (that's the labour part) and usually plant the plants too. Also they can do the whole job including design but there's a risk that the design and plant selection won't be the best quality ones (sometimes they depend on what the landscaper has in stock on his yard at the moment Wink ) It's very important because of the odd weather we got the last couple of years... You need to get the plants right - the hardiness and the size matters, the whole year round interest etc.. Most of landscapers provide the whole service with a free design but not always the design is a good quality, like I said. So it really depends on what you want, how big is your garden (yours' not so big) and if you're ready to spend a bit more money and get a designer (price depends on the size of the garden again).

I can recommend a good designer. She might know a few landscapers. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to do that in my post??? I can send you a pm and then you can decide.

easyram, would you be able to send me a pm withe the reccomendation of the designer please? I have a relatively large back garden that is in dire need of some love and attention, would be nice to get the design done before the winter so I could plan the work out over next year.

I was very temped to get a groupon deal a while back for a crowd based in dublin called maximise design http://www.groupon.ie/deals/dublin-special/maximize-design-landscape-gardening/295702
but I wasn't sure about it at the time.
