Before you start a gardening project, it’s worth working out how much you’re likely to spend. This will help you decide what you can afford and the best time to do it. We’ve put together a gardening price guide to give you a general idea of your project costs.
Do your research
Does your lawn just need a revamp or do you want to landscape your whole garden? Are you looking for a one-off job or does your garden need regular maintenance? It’s important to do your research so you have the answers to these questions. This will make it much easier to find relevant prices for your project.
Decide on a budget
It’s also sensible to decide on a budget for your project fairly early on. This will prevent you from underspending or overspending. It’ll also stop you wasting time researching products and services that you can’t afford. Be sure to be realistic when you set your budget so you don’t have to backtrack later.
