Some of our garden transformations
A Large Traditional Courtyard
This was part of a 2 acre garden surrounding a very large 16th Century brick cottage. A winding drive leads from the main entrance gates, through a large expanse of lawn, to a parking area to the side of (and at a lower level than) the house and project area. The project entailed converting a large undulating area of lawn to the front of the house, and the surrounding shrubberies on varying levels, into a traditional and fairly formal courtyard garden, with lots of interconnecting paths and pockets of interest.
Ultra Contemporary Family Garden
Simplicity works, but it isn’t always easy to achieve – in this ultra-contemporary family garden, every little detail was important, from the the lines of symmetry in the structure, to the location of the parasol, and the routing of the gas pipe for fire pit! Get everything right and the result is stunning.
ALDA Landscapes provided a friendly, helpful service throughout the consultation, design and construction process. Good communication, innovative design, highly skilled construction with meticulous attention to detail from start to finish. We are extremely pleased with the result.Andy Stephenson via Google
Just wanted to send a quick note to say thank you all again for the incredible work…. We feel more lucky than ever to have such a beautiful space during this time. I was out watering yesterday and someone stopped to compliment the brick wall out front and ask who did it. It happens regularly and we are always excited to tell them who we worked with.Aimee and Steve
