About this Event

How to set professional design fees

a 2hr webinar by Paul Hensey

How do you calculate your fees for a new project?  Best guess? What you did last time plus a bit?

Do you struggle to decide what to charge clients for your services? 

Do you feel you always do much more work on a job than you’re being paid for? 

This webinar will show you how to quote for design work to ensure you charge appropriately.

The objective of this talk is to give you confidence and tools to improve your approach to quoting design work.

This talk will work through several methods that might be used to set the revenue earned on a project:  from the quick, through to some more robust methods. 

Different projects may require different approaches or resources and a range of pricing methods can be useful to appreciate the best way to manage work and therefore charge.

Additional income streams will also be discussed:  what aspects of a project, other than design that might be charged (plants, hard landscaping materials, additional services).

 Topics covered: 

  •  Calculating your efficiency and running costs

  •   The hourly rate

  •  Quick methods to estimate a project’s potential

  •   Repeatable quotation methods

  •   Working collaboratively

  •   Work schedules

  •   Getting paid

  •   What to do about bad debtors

  •   Revenue streams other than design

 Every design practice is different, but a comprehensive, repeatable quotation system is critical to maintain a healthy business and competitive position. 

This lecture will demonstrate how to establish a rate for the work that designers do. 

The sample spreadsheets used in this training session will be issued to attendees.

TARGET AUDIENCE: This course is aimed at anyone working as a garden or landscape designer. It is ideal for those in the early stages of their own business, and equally valuable for those already working and who would like to maximise their earnings.


Can I access lectures that I have missed

All lectures are available as a recording with a copy of the slides used.

Access will be charged at the fee of the original lecture and obtained by emailing me


How does training over the internet work?

I use Zoom software. It was developed as a platform for holding classrooms and meetings over the internet and can accomadate everything from a 1-1 teaching session to a +100 attendees. You do not need to download any software; simply follow the link that you receive a few minutes before the training is scheduled to start.  

Do I need to download and software?

No. The tutor will "host" the event so there is nothing to do except follow the link that will be sent to you.

Do I need to take notes?

Not unless you want to. An advantage of online training is that the sessions will be recorded. This means that you can review and replay any part of the lecture. The recording can take a day to be processesed and a link will be sent for you to access and download the file.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
