This was a very big project from the start. Working for a lovely couple who have not been able to enjoy their garden for years due to it not being wheelchair accessible. She provided me a basic design of what she wanted to make it accessible with a section for her own style of planting.
In this project we were tasked to create a more interesting space for planting add more colour, with pathways around the outskirts of the garden to the existing decking. The customer wanted planting to remember her roots from New Zealand. Cordylines and phormiums with the dotted fern were the go-to plants to achieve this effect.
Here we started off with an area that was covered in weeds a concrete slab once a old shed base and a pit used for getting underneath cars for repair. It was filled with hardcore and old building rubble and a stable base was created to lay on. In this project we use reclaimed Indian
Here we prepared for visitors to be aloud back to visit their loved ones after lockdown restrictions had been lifted. We created a safe concrete pathway with high standard handrails and protective fencing so no one would injure themselves as they walk down the slope. What was to be added was a summerhouse with the
Here the ground slopped quite dramatically and the customer was beginning to struggle getting the mower up and down the hill. They wanted to make the ground level so they could sit out and enjoy the garden more. Here we terraced the garden, using a wooden sleeper instead of a wall reduces the cost as

What was needed was a way to enjoy what was already there! We installed a shingle pathway with a full subbase
For this project the ground was very much uneven and not suitable for entertaining. We built an extremely sturdy deck using 6×2 timbers for the structure and regular decking boards for the surface. We were able to level the ground completely only including one step down and keeping to building regulations of being 30cm off
For this client we created a pathway using the slabs that they inherited when purchasing the house. To outline them and extend the width of the path we used a slimsett paving block in a brindle colour. All individually concreted in for strength and longevity. We also installed this fantastic terracotta water feature which makes
Here we spruced up a planting area and added to what was already there to make a statement as you enter the property. The final image is the planting 3 years on which shows that this project has been a great success! New Zealand planting such as phormiums and cordylines give you the sense of
Here the client asked for a weed filled lawn to be removed and a new lawn to be laid. The second terrace to merge with the first and a new deck to be created. To lower costs of waste as the access to the property was difficult, up hills with steps making additional topsoil and
