Landscape works, including plantings, are a serious investment. Good design is the first step to achieve quality in both the hard and soft components of the landscape. On top of this, proper construction materials and techniques are vital to ensure that landscape works are a lasting and enjoyable investment.
When evaluating quotes, it is important to understand exactly what you are paying for. To avoid poor construction and planting it is important to be sure that the detail of the works given in different quotes is comparable. A cheap quote may at first seem attractive but may only be cheap because risky cost cutting measures are being employed. As the expert in landscape garden services, Van Leeuwen Green puts real effort into developing a quote that is accurate, reasonable and takes into account all site factors to create a high quality landscape. Some of the factors that will influence the cost of landscape construction works are as follows:
- Site preparation requirements such as levelling and rubbish removal
- Quality and type of materials
- Specifications such as foundation strength for paving
- Complexity of works
- Soil preparation
- Plant species, stock size and planting density
WHAT WE PROVIDE
Detailed, itemised quotations
This allows you to budget and schedule installation over a period of time. In addition, if you wish to obtain quotations from other contractors, you have a detailed benchmark for comparing estimates.
If Van Leeuwen Green has designed your garden you will automatically receive a written quotation shortly after receiving your final design plan. For small and simple projects with clear-cut parameters (such as installation of a new irrigation system, laying new instant turf or a single area of paving) we are happy to provide you with a quotation without the existence of a design plan.
However, for complex landscape construction works we generally do not provide quotations unless some kind of design plan is available to use as a basis for the quote. This is because without such a plan it is virtually impossible for all parties to be clear about exactly what works are being undertaken.
Quality workmanship and attention to detail
Our team has enormous experience and a broad range of complimentary skills, with expertise in all areas of landscape including paving, decking, planting, instant turf installation, garden sprinklers systems or garden irrigation systems, lighting, paving and water features. We make sure that your landscape is constructed using quality materials and proper specifications so that the landscape lasts over time. This includes the use of plant species that are long lived and reliable and proper soil preparation to ensure that plants look good and enjoy a long life span.
Broad range of landscaping services
By offering so many services ‘in-house’ and with a large network of subcontractors for specialised services, we can simplify the whole process. In addition, with such a direct line of communication between the various aspects of design, construction and maintenance within Van Leeuwen Green, at any stage potential alterations or questions you may have can be dealt with efficiently.
