The initial phase involved planning the dimensions and curvature of the raised decking & pathway. The outline of the path was sketched onto the grass throughout the garden, providing an insight into how the finished outcome would look.
Regular client liaison ensured we followed their landscape’s vision to perfection, ironing out any potential kinks in the early planning stages.
Each decking board had to be flawlessly trimmed into shape in order to create the perfect curves, used for the curved path. In doing so, we could make certain that all gaps between the boards were at a 45-degree angle to the edge of the pathway, creating a seamless consistency down the entire curved footpath.
The finished pathway was warmly received; the outcome of the project was a beautiful sight but also allowed the client to appreciate the garden’s complete magnitude.
This project involved designing and building a bespoke garden water-feature. We began with the construction of the base foundation, which supports both the main water tank and the wall.
The wall is then partially built to allow accommodation of the water pump, water blade and balancing tank.
The main water tank and water blade are then fixed into position and the remainder of the wall is fully erected to complete the water-feature structure.
Once the water blade feature is complete we run a number of tests to confirm that there are no leaks, and to make sure that the water pump and working top-up are working as intended.
When all testing is signed-off, we finalise the project by positioning plants around the base and edges of the water feature. This helps soften the outline of stone and steel, breaking up some of the solid lines and allowing the garden water structure to blend into the surrounding landscape.
Before laying the reclaimed Yorkstone paving slabs, it was essential to dig out, level off and measure-up the area due to be paved.
This was done, ensuring that the paving was on a very slight gradient, allowing for water drainage whilst maintaining a natural, unwarped perception.
Utilising the reclaimed Yorkstone paving not only added a timeless look to the garden, but the natural stones also connected character and charm to surrounding backgrounds.
The final outcome showcases how a moderate Yorkstone project can create a beautifully flush garden pathway as well as forming a natural segmentation of the garden landscape.
Before a new turf is laid it is vitally important to prepare the soil for installation of a new lawn or turf.
There are certain things that need to be taking into account, such as understanding the; types of soil, PH level, site gradient and drainage direction, which are all essential to determine where the existing soil may need preparations.
We recommend staying off the new turf for up to six weeks, this is to help establish a healthy and happy new lawn, also required is a regimented watering cycle which when in place well help nurture the newly established lawn.
We can help by installing an automated watering system, from something simple like a timed sprinkler or something more permanent like popup sprinklers that can water the lawn at night and remain completely invisible during the day.
