An old uneven concrete patio was dug out and rebuilt from the subsoil up using fresh hardcore and then a modern Fossil Sandstone slab was laid.

A linear drain was added to assist winter rain run off.

A small evening patio was created at the top of the garden using some of the existing concrete slabs, timber sleepers were added to level things up.

Bumpy front lawn removed and replaced with new turf after leveling, a border was created along the sides for a hedge to be planted along with a low maintenance gravel strip.

In the rear courtyard garden the moss riddled lawn was removed and replaced with a quality 20mm Quantock stone over a membrane in the central area and to one side, a timber sleeper raised bed was built to give some height and further shrub beds created to add soft planting.

After investigation in lifting the sunken slabs, it was evident the sub-base was not prepared correctly and had dropped, a new base was prepared and the offending slabs re-laid, all old pointing was  cut out and re-pointed.

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!!
