The Drive way needed to be widened to allow a camper van to be parked, so the existing Kerbs were saved and re-laid in an opposite curve then filled in with a customer choice of blocks, although they dont match colour wise due to the availability the style is the same.

Rather too much plum slate on this driveway with a narrow side path way out of proportion, so the remedy… install a very pleasing light grey block with a dark grey outline, a percentage of graveled area was retained due to the property being at the bottom of a hill and can at times collect a lot of surface water. A couple of planting areas was incorporated¬† to break up the hardness and soften the look once planted.

An unwelcome snow storm covered us overnight but was soon gone to allow progress.

An old gravel /tarmac mish mash of a driveway was dug out and replaced with a new more consistent one with a new front door step built, a strip of block paving was added to prevent the loose stone topping from exiting the property.

A congested street required the owner to make more private parking space.

The old existing Lawn was dug out to make way for this, however the we did not want to loose the permeable ground space the lawn provided for natural rainfall, so a permeable membrane was installed and covered with a MOT type 1 material which retains excellent flow through, a loose stone chipping was added to the top for decorative purposes, a small block paved area was installed across the threshold to help prevent any movement of loose stone onto the pavement.

So… after a spell away phase 2 was started, the top area was slabbed, greenhouse and shed installed. The lower area had more drainage installed to take the roof water and main patio water, various levels of footings laid to accommodate beautiful Purbeck stone walling , this again was set off by continuing with Indian Sandstone paving . Shrub beds were created into the paved area and topped up with a quality loam 18inch’s deep for good root growth. A large pergola style arch was erected to access the garden from the main patio, some trellis work still has to be put up to screen and seclude the space once the intended planting has been done by the customer. Electrics have been installed into some of the beds ready to power the water features. A Large ouside garden room is currently being built across the main patio and the final touch will be a center area of luxury artificial grass.

Many thanks to Mick and Jane (Customers) for the hospitality during the many weeks work and for Jane’s enormous effort on deciding the relative areas that MSC LANDCAPES BUILT!!
