We were asked to build this garden for a local garden designer.
The access to the site wasn’t great and certainly posed a challenge. Most of the materials and even the heavy machinery had to craned in.
The first job was to excavate the site to create more usable space. All the generated spoil was removed from site by grab lorries, lifting the material over the hedge.
New reinforced concrete walls were built to retain the banks. These were later rendered and painted for a contemporary aesthetic.
Kandla grey Indian sandstone was laid to the main patio.
The clean lines and warm grey tones of the natural stone compliment the New England style of the property.
The lower level was paved using a combination of Indian sandstone and reclaimed Granite setts, planting pockets were included to soften the hard landscaping.
Once the rear garden was complete we turned our attention to the front of the property.
The existing timber edging was removed and replaced for Granite setts.
We installed a Granite sett rumble strip to the driveway threshold to reduce the loose aggregate dressing from travelling off the drive with traffic.
The decorative aggregate was removed and replaced for crushed Ragstone. This hard wearing stone compliments the property perfectly.
Reclaimed Granite setts were also used to pave an area of the front garden. Planting pockets of lavender soften the stone setts.
