    “Jon and his team of merry men (Willie, Richard, Joe and new boy Ben) have done an absolutely fantastic job on our garden. Armed with a very basic specification from me, they provided excellent suggestions for improvements and changes throughout the whole project which has resulted in changing our jungle into a usable and pleasant space. They coped wonderfully in the heat and were a pleasure to have in our home. I would recommend them to anyone looking for any garden improvement work.”Lisa W

Garden makeover Southwick, low maintenance garden with paving and planters

We created a 3d render for our client to visualise our ideas

Our proposed design for our client

Client: Private house owner

Design: Jon Lee

Build: Jon Lee, Gaving Hunter, Wesley Hogg

Materials: Fairstone antique paving, Marshalls drivesett duo block pavers

Brief: This garden was created after years of collecting individual items that were great on their own, but set together in one space simply looked cluttered. Our brief was to create a garden that would be classically low maintenance, with easy access for planting.

We began this project by removing a large amount of material in order to create the new levels on which we then used Marshalls Fairstone paving to create a new patio. We removed all areas laid to lawn, with its need for constant maintenance, and installed raised planters instead. After creating a blank canvas by excavating with a digger, we then set our new fence lines to increase the size of the garden. Hedges, lawns and anything that needed trimming were removed. Once this was done we marked out the proposed paving and changes in level and began the hard landscaping.

Take a look at the pictures below to see how we went from an idea on paper, through to a 3D design render and finally the completed project.
