On this massive project our remit from the customer was to turn what was left of his garden/building site after his extension and orangery had been built into a garden that he and his wife could joy in there retirement and also work in and tend to at there leisure.
From the initial installation of the substantial concrete footings needed for the retaining walls that would hold the split level Indian stone patio though to the bespoke wrought iron railings that the customers were involved with during the design.
New lawns with drainage underneath along with the customers consultation with our horticultural expert Ray to decide on the range of tree, flowers and plants that were to be installed. Outside lighting built into the paving along with new paths built to the right levels and gradients for the customers ease.
From the initial consultation the customer was impressed with my confidence in delivering his vision of the project on time and on budget although as with many projects the design can change as you progress through the different stages of the project but as long as discussions between myself and the customer on budget and timescales are kept transparent and regular then it is very easy to progress without too many hold ups.
This project was personally very satisfying on completion as it was started during the winter spring months in the cold and wet and can be very hard to envisage what, when and how the end project will look like, but once the weather got better and the different stages came together quicker and easier (and warmer) then I’m sure you’ll agree that the end project is a garden that anyone would be proud to enjoy.
