At Kingshill property Solutions, we consider a number of factors when providing a quote to give you an accurate estimate of how much your landscaping will cost.

What Factors Are Involved

There are many factors involved which can dramatically increase the cost due to several reasons like the number of materials used as well as the amount of added labour for the job to be completed. Please bear in mind all these prices are estimates, for actual quotes, get in touch with us today.

Digging the Ground Up

Firstly, many people choose to dig the ground up in their garden to have a brand new design implanted. Also known as levelling the garden out, you can expect to pay anywhere from £70 an hour for this service as well as pay per square metre for the material you wish to put down on your new flat garden.

Artificial grass

Artificial grass is a very popular choice for many people in the UK. This is because a huge garden may take too long to cut whereas a smaller garden means it’s not really worth buying a lawnmower. You should expect to pay around £30-£50 per square metre for grass laying plus the cost of the grass.


New patios are another feature which can increase the cost of your new garden. Patios can vary in cost due to the size and material being used. You can expect to pay anywhere from £1000-£6000 depending on the size of your space. As well as this, you will need to pay labour costs for a workman to install it for you.

Water Features

If you’re looking to add a water feature to your garden, you need to be aware that it will come at an extra cost. This is because the materials and labour for installing a water feature are more expensive. You can expect to pay around £500 for a small water feature and up to £3000 for a large one.


Fences are a must-have in any garden and they can quickly set you back a few hundred pounds. You can expect to pay anywhere from £400 and up depending on how many fence panels you are going to be needing.
