Well, after 4 months (inc Xmas break) this very interesting project is finished bar some final detail around the pond, old concrete paving and borders were discarded and the new layout was constructed, a large area of lawn was changed into flowing shrub beds packed with a good seasonal plants, ( Planted by the ever hard working Jane ‘customer’, good work Jane! ) a pond was dug to approximate shape and levels by Roger ( Customer and very keen helper! before i arrived) from then on the pond was shaped, footings and concrete block wall’s installed by myself ready for Arron ( A B Aquatics ) to install the liner pump, and complete the pond stone work.
The new Indian Sandstone Paving ( Umbra Grey ) was installed to wrap around the house meeting the driveway, Purbeck stone was used throughout the project to build various walls hugging the paving.
My favorite feature of the lot has to be the stone circle created to give a seating area lapping up the evening summer sun!
Oak pergola frames have been installed by Roger mapping out a garden walk way.
Finally the driveway was cleared ( much to Jane’s delight ) and a layer of 20mm Quantock grey stone was spread.
A big thanks to my 2 collegues helping me out with all the work, and a massive thank you to customer’s Roger & Jane for there hospitality and help along the way.
