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.

More spring/ summer pics to be added…

An old gravel area plus a section of lawn was used to gain space to create this stunning new patio using Buff blend Indian Sandstone, a Pergola was erected to provide some shade once the customer has selected and planted some climbers to cover the top.

A Pine sleeper retaining wall was built incorporating a set back in step.

Fantastic Couple to work for and enjoyed an ‘afternoon tea in the summerhouse on occasions’ had a few giggles between us along the way making the whole job more delightfull.

An old Gravel area at the rear of the property was transformed into a clean slabbed space suitable for outside entertaining, small slabs where left out and in-filled with Quantock 20mm stone to allow the customer to plant groundcover scented plants.

Old crazy paving removed and a new concrete path laid for better wheelchair access, the old paving will be used in some gabion baskets to the right of the path at a later date for boundary support due to a very deep field ditch on the field side.
