  • Client Comments

    “Many thanks for all your hard work in producing a superb decking for our garden. We are really please with it. It has definitely created an additional living space (weather permitting). We have moved the outdoor table up onto the deck and thereis still plenty of room. Suffice to say, we have used it a number of times already and have had a number of people interested in the work, some who have come round to have a peek and some from the photographs I have taken. I wouldn't be surprised if this didn't generate more work for you.”Jon S

Heavenly Garden Transformation with Ipe decking, Casarta paving and pleached hornbeams.

There is nothing quite like the feeling we get from creating a garden like this from scratch, and knowing that the pleasure it brings our clients will last for years to come.

Long narrow gardens are hard to break up without screening, which tends to make them look small, so we looked at alternative ways of creating different areas which would link the garden together. We used Ipe hardwood decking with Marshalls Casarta Slate pavers for the main areas, and then used artificial turf with some specimen planting to soften the garden. The bench gave a focal point for the eye and is also a great spot to catch the last of the evening sun.

The brief was to ‘make me something fabulous’. What do you think? Did we do it?

As an added bonus we won the ‘hard landscaping’ catagory at the APL Awards 2015 for this project.
