My last project from November 15 to Jan 16, starting with the relevant planning permissions obtained by the Project manager. A tree surgeon came in to take out 4 trees and thick Rhododendrons, i then removed the stumps/roots to the bank area and leveled the top area, next up was a piling company who inserted the galvanized steel poles over 2 meters deep to obtain the correct loading pressure, the 6 piles are capable of taking 10 tons in weight when combined. A local steel fabrication company then built a frame and welded it to the poles, next was spreading 10 tons of type 1 stone and compacting it, some new slabs were laid to complete a hard perimeter edge. A new 4ft close board fence was erected by me with sleepers forming a retaining edge to the top of the bank.Ducting was installed for the Electricians to feed a  cable through to power the new Log Cabin. A Water feature was then installed  before the next specialist company came in to lay a resin/rubber surface. New work/store sheds were erected then finished off with myself erecting a 6ft close board fence to the front. The whole point of this project was to make use of a lost overgrown corner and erect a new Log Cabin giving much needed outside covered space for the children that use the Hospice, I would just like to add what a wonderful job the staff do for the children and could’nt ask for a better bunch of people to have the pleasure of being involved with.

The final phase is now complete of a beautiful garden enhancing the recent build/renovation of a Bungalow in Broadstone, following the pictures through the front has been transformed from a build dump site to an attractive asset, the driveway was relieved of the tired tarmac and replaced with a decorative stone, moving to the back a Graphite indian sandstone patio was built over a natural purbeck stone wall, the pond was dug out and finished in the spring, the last phase has just been completed by adding stone edge borders followed by raised oak timber beds and an upright structure, a feature timber circle was installed giving a unique focal point to the corner of the property, using up the patio stone off-cuts a path was created connecting the patio to the lower seating area.finally Cotswold Cernery stone was added to give the garden a spacious and low maintenance appeal with well stocked shrub beds. The customers off this property have put in considerable time and helpful labour to achieve their goal and i believe few could argue its not been achieved!!!

New Indian Sandstone paving laid to replace a collapsed concrete slab and retaining wall, new stone wall and steps built along with a new fence using air flow panels due to the property being subject to strong winds. Plenty of work with the mini digger on this job
