Timber, Fencing, Decking, Arches, Pergolas
Timber has been with us since gardens began with wattle fencing rustic arches and more. Timber now often takes on a new dimension by becoming a main part of the garden’s visual character with treated timber being planed and polished, and used horizontally, vertically and diagonally.
Boundary fencing is no longer just panels nailed to posts and then painted bright colours. Panels can be part of the visual effect with vertical, horizontal or diagonal rails to allow the wind to gently flow through the garden without producing a wind vortex over a solid structure.
House and Garden constructs bespoke structures to ensure a client’s garden is individual. Trellises are a versatile structure for providing bookends to an archway and provide semi-secluded barriers around seating areas under a Pergola. The most common way of Trellis is by nailing each panel to a post, but this we believe is not appropriate so we screw each panel to provide easy dissemble without the concern of breakage.
Pergolas are bespoke built with all rails mortised to give a solid and visual pleasing structure, making sure that the timber used is of sufficient sizing for the area it covers.
Decking is again coming into fashion from the viewpoint of producing a pleasing walkway from house to garden. Our Decking platforms are built with posts and extended hand rail posts, sunk into the ground with the appropriate number of joists bolted together to provide a solid framework. The deck planks are then screwed into position. Now metal, glass or plastic panels are used to provide the security between posts under the Hand-rails, or with trellis panels to match the other features in the garden.
