Landscapers and Garden Design
To make sure that your garden project flows seamlessly without undue delay we divide the project into a number of elements.
Hard Landscaping elements include all the patios, walling, pathways, and driveways etc., where important foundations have to be laid before stoneware can be constructed.
Timber Landscaping elements include Boundary Fencing, Trellises, Pergolas and Decks that provide a stable boundary or platform. They are now often used as room dividers which are excellent for segregating seating and those secluded areas round the garden. Timber pergolas provide supports for climbing plants and a shaded zone for dining or relaxing.
Water landscaping elements include water features which can be incorporated into the patio and decks or be part of walling from a classic Lion’s head water spout to modern stainless steel water blades to copper bowls to disperse the water into rills or pools.
Ponds are great but their careful site position is important, not only because of overhanging trees and shrubs that will easily shed leaves and debris into the water, but it is worth remembering that water and children just do not mix, so their positioning is paramount for the safety of children.
Soft Landscaping takes includes all the soft elements such as lawns and planting. Before the lawn can be laid it is important that the area is carefully mapped out so the turf can be ordered and there is sufficient drainage so that lawns don't become boggy through heavy rain. Borders are dug deeply and that good quality soil is in situ to give the less hardy plants the best start in life. Incorporated within soft landscaping is metal strips that are used to edge lawns where they come into contact with shingled driveways or pathways.
Garden Lighting can sometimes be an afterthought, but we know it is essential that cables need to be laid early and they must be installed deep underground. Cables for pond pumps and filters must have their own circuit and be positioned to provide the best possible water flow, therefore up-front planning is important. The latest LED Lighting is excellent for low power consumption but needs its own cabling and laid underground, so identifying cable runs early will save undue frustration and costly cable installation after the garden is completed.
Inspirations include all those incidentals which are so important to personalise the garden such as pots – troughs – Urns and Sculptures. These are ideal for covering up un-slightly drain covers if they cannot be buried beneath a layer of shingle or incorporated into a patio by an inset paving stone for its disguise.
