The initial phase involved planning the dimensions and curvature of the raised decking & pathway. The outline of the path was marked on the grass throughout the garden providing a view of the route.
Regular conversations with the client 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 curve for the 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 design.
The finished pathway was warmly received; the outcome of the project was a beautiful sight, and allowed the client to appreciate the entire garden.
This project involved designing and building a bespoke 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 finished to complete the water-feature.
Once the water blade feature is complete, we run tests to confirm there are no leaks, and to make sure that the water pump and top-up are operating correctly.
When all testing is signed-off, we finish 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 water feature 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 to be paved.
This was done, so the paving was on a very slight gradient, to allow water drainage whilst maintaining a natural, level perception.
Using the reclaimed Yorkstone paving not only adds a timeless look to the garden, but the natural stone also connects character and charm to surrounding background.
The outcome shows how a moderate Yorkstone project can create a beautifully flush garden pathway as well as forming a natural segmentation of the landscape.
Before new turf is laid, it is vitally important to prepare the soil correctly for installation.
There are certain things that need to be considered, 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 preparation.
We recommend staying off the new turf for up to six weeks, this is to help establish a healthy lawn, also required is a regimented watering cycle which when in place will 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 popups that can water the lawn at night and remain completely invisible during the day.
