Mudeford Landscape Gardening Project

Landscape Gardening Project – Mudeford

The project for this property in Mudeford required a full garden redesign. The lawn was bisected by an old concrete path and dying shrubs and bushes were encroaching into the lawn area causing excessive maintenance issues. On one side the garden wall had become so overgrown with ivy it was obscuring light into the house.

Our remit was to provide a low maintenance, easily managed garden with lawn, patio area, pathway to garage and perennial plants which would not grow too big and require minimal attention. We also needed to replace a wall towards the end of the garden which had been damaged by a fallen tree.

We commenced work by clearing the ground completely and ascertaining levels for the lawn and patio and digging the trench for the foundation of the new wall.

The Finished Garden Design

We maximised the lawn area by making it a large rectangle and having a path to one side running adjacent to the new and existing wall. The other side was left with a border just big enough for small perennials to be planted and filled with decorative pebbles.

The patio area spanned the entire width of the garden behind the house from wall to wall and was big enough for outdoor furniture and barbecue area to entertain guests. We used natural stone slabs laid in a random design at the client’s request which was continued seamlessly into the pathway leading to the garage at the end of the garden. Potted plants were placed on the patio area to decorate the bare wall exposed by removing the old bushes and shrubs.

A separating, trellis screen fence was placed at the end of the lawn with a gate to provide some security and privacy from the cul-de-sac the other side of the garage. Once the garage was built, we returned to lay a block paved driveway from road level up to the entrance to the garage.

Our client was extremely pleased with the finished garden design and appreciated how little would have to be done to maintain it.

Natural Stone Patio & Paving Slabs

Natural stone has been the first choice for creating patios and paved areas for a long time and many examples of these areas still exist today. Even now, with many other man made options available, natural products are still a very popular choice for patios and pathways.

This property has a road and public pavement to the rear and was a little exposed to passers by. The client wanted a fence tall enough to provide plenty of privacy and sturdy enough to present a deterrent to anyone who might be thinking of doing more than simply passing by!

Close Board fencing panels were used to provide the required level of privacy and security with a natural and organic appearance.

Secure Rear Garden Gate

We also had to construct a gate which could be bolted and locked and also tamper resistant from the outside.

Why We Used Close Board Fence

Some of the key benefits of close board are closeboard makes an ideal privacy fence, cost effective and easy to install, offers wind resistance, secures your garden boundary, pressure treated timber, ideal for uneven landscaping e.g. sloping grounds and hills or corners.

The road side fence panels to this property had deteriorated significantly and were in urgent need of replacing. The panels were betwixt brick pillars comprising part of a low wall. We also had to accommodate a 90 degree curve where the wall of the property rounded a corner. A close board fence was chosen to provide the sturdy versatility and strength required but without sacrificing the appearance.

Car Park Space Fence

We also had to construct a full height fence with gate to provide separation from the garden and the car parking space at the side of the house but with a security gate for ease of access. This was also constructed using close board fencing.
