This project was for a very large, rear garden that required a fence for the entire rear border of the property and new, durable garden lawn which needed a hardy turf. The garden fence and laying new turf for the lawn was just the first stage of this project
Our client had an extension built which left the level to the garden via an old concrete patio area too low. The whole side of the extension and around to the main house had to be brought up to level after removing the concrete patio and old paving slab pathway. This was replaced with a natural stone patio area with a step to allow easy access to the extension. The new, sweeping patio led to large planting boxes made from railway sleepers which also acted as a retaining wall.
Planting beds constructed from sleepers were also installed parallel to the rear fence, once the new turf had properly rooted. Each plant bed section was tiered to accommodate the slope of the garden.
Future Project Work
Our client has also instructed us to commence work on the block paving for the driveway. This will involve taking up and salvaging as many of the blocks as possible and then the surface will be covered with stone and compacted to create a solid base to keep the driveway even and level throughout. This will prevent the the blocks sinking and causing problems.
