This project was, like many of our projects, completed in two main phases. The first phase was to clear out and regrade the entire rear garden and create a raised wrap-around border to help disguise the prominent boundary fences.

About this installation
Oak sleepers were cut to size and then concreted into the ground to create a sweeping curved border which can be appreciated from all angles of the garden. We brought in fresh certified topsoil and compost in preparation for planting later on.
The terrace was laid using a fabulous bright and durable Italian porcelain tile product which offers low maintenance, anti-slip and anti-frost benefits.
Once the new garden framework of paving and walls was in place, we then brought in screened topsoil and re-levelled the area to reach a flat lush turfed lawn which instant knits the garden together.
The original concrete ’70s front driveway was gutted to make way for a much more appropriate expansive driveway to suit modern-day requirements.
We reconstructed the front doorsteps and platform using the same porcelain product as the rear garden but with a change of colour to tie in with adjacent granite setts which complement each other. The client chose the silver granite setts as they define the edges of the tarmac and also create a feature threshold at the pavement edge.
We arranged for our chosen tarmac specialist subcontractors to come and carry out our tarmac requirements to the highest standard.
