Maintenance & Support

Webscape Gardener is happy to provide ongoing support for your website, including routine maintenance and updates, consultancy, meetings (online/face-to-face), development, or editorial support.

You can pay for ad-hoc work as you need it, or choose a maintenance package.

Please note:

All Maintenance Plans are for a minimum of 3 months. The ‘Extra’ plan is only available as an annual plan.

Prices given above are per website per month (or per year). If you have multiple websites that need support, please contact me to request a combined quote.

Un-used support hours will not be rolled over.

Payment for Maintenance Plans must be made monthly/annually in advance, unless otherwise agreed.

To cancel a Maintenance Plan, you must give at least one month’s notice.

A rush fee may be applied for urgent work. This will be added to your next invoice. Alternatively it may – at my discretion – be deducted as ‘hours’ from your allowance.

If your website was built by someone other than Webscape Gardener, I may need to carry out a site check before accepting it for an Maintenance Plan. In some cases, there will be a small fee for this check, depending on the complexity of your site.

Not sure which plan is right for you? Get in touch and we can work it out together.

Ad-hoc Work

Ad-hoc work is charged at £40 per half hour, or part thereof.

A rush fee of up to 50% may be applied for urgent or out-of-hours work.

Hours of work

My usual working hours are 9.30am-4pm, Monday to Thursday, excluding bank holidays.
