Corfe Mullen Garden Design Project

Corfe Mullen

The client wanted a raised decking area set at the same level as the bottom step of the stairs leading down to the back garden from the house. It was to occupy the full width of the garden and feature an embedded plant box for a tree to feature in the deck.

The beds were covered with coloured stone to minimise maintenance and were planted with evenly spaced herbaceous plants and shrubs.

Bournemouth Project

Bournemouth

The customer wanted to replace the ‘ugly’ tarmac parking space in front of their house which had sunken in places and was starting to break up with block paving and a slab section marking the area under the covered door approach. The block paving was also to provide better run-off of surface water to the drainage channel and prevent the large puddles that used to occur with the old driveway.

In the back garden they wanted a unique design of mainly hard landscaping to keep the maintenance to a minimum but with enough space left for planted borders to provide a summer time flora bloom.

Swanage Project

Swanage

This garden presented a particular challenge due to the very steep slope and existing concrete steps. We terraced the garden using railway sleepers and clad the existing steps with decking.

The client did not want a handrail blocking the view over the bay so we fitted lights around the outer edge of the deck as a safety feature at night.
