PROJECT TYPE: GARDEN LANDSCAPING

“The aim was to create a maintenance free garden for our client”

Wye Valley Heritage cleared the garden and removed the existing Leylandii Hedge.

Heavy machinery was used, capable of lifting root balls and excavating a foundation for a retaining wall.

To minimise costs, the wall was constucted of 4 inch concrete blocks laid flat with soldier brick edging seen visible on the top.

Left over soil from the excavation was used to back fill the wall incorporating weep holes

Slotted fence posts were used with the fence to minimise cost in this area.

300 x 1.800mm ground boards were used to form the facing of the wall.

5 foot Feather Edge (Close Board) panels were errected and topped with a trellis top panel 1.8 x 300mm to finish the look.

The newly levelled ground was covered in a ground membrane (Taram) and a base layer of 40mm stone (OMT) was put down over the top.

Part of the garden was coated with a layer of 30mm decorative stone (Forest of Dean Chippings).

600 x 600 reclaimed paving slabs were used to form pathway leading down the garden to a private seating area.

The pathway also created a partition between the lawn and decorative gravel.

The lawn was constructed by distributing a layer of washed sand over the stone for drainage and to ensure a uniform finish. Artificial grass (Astro Turf) was arranged for a totally maintenance free garden.

Reclaimed curb edging was used to edge the turf and the path and timber boards were in position the maintain the existing party fence

Landscaping Testimonial

Lyndon was highly recommended to me by a family member. My garden had become too much for me to look after as I needed a maintenance-free alternative. Despite being a major project the disruption to my day-to-day life was minimal and Lyndon worked very hard to get the garden just how I wanted it. The end result is stunning and I can enjoy my garden again. Thank you so much. Trevor - Hereford.
