The costs of building a garden varies dramatically, depending on size of the garden, materials used, maturity of plants, etc.

The majority of costs relates to how much hardscaping is required (paving, decks, fencing, etc.), softscaping is relatively cheap especially if you use tubestock.

Costs can be cut dramatically if you decide to build the garden yourself (self build), be aware though that doing this does take a lot of time and patience.

The table below should give you an idea on how much you can expect to spend on building a garden, the prices are an indication only and depending on designs can differ greatly.
