Construction Cost: £10-15k + VAT (terrace area only)
This garden originally featured lethally slippery old crazy paving, old walls and a pond full of newts. Our brief was to create a larger, brighter sitting area – which would catch the late afternoon sun – and remove the feeling of sitting at the end of a tunnel.
The first part of this project involved the detailed design of the new terrace and retaining walls. The construction phase for this part included:
Removal of old pond – whilst rescuing scores of newts!
Construction of sweeping retaining walls, terraces, steps, trellis
Installation of drainage (French drains) and water feature
Border preparation and turf repairs
The next part of the project involved a master sketch plan design for the whole garden, to be implemented over time.
