Hard Landscaping

Hard Landscaping is all the structure within the garden.  It often starts off at the boundaries with walls or fences, and includes patios, pathways, walls etc.  Getting this aspect of your garden right is crucial, as the constituent parts should be there for a long time.  Therefore, they need to be well constructed from good, reliable materials as well as pleasing to the eye.

We tend to do a large number of gardens that belong to period houses.  As such, we prefer to try and find materials that match the character of the house.  Using reclaimed materials such as old street cobbles, or flagstones is a really effective way of creating a timeless effect for your driveway, patio or path, whilst doing your green credentials no harm whatsoever!

On the other side of the coin, we are expert in creating large, complex decking, often raised off the ground by a considerable margin.  The sky is the limit, with our technical know-how and ingenuity it is possible to maximize space with these structures housing cubby holes or even a hidden spa should you wish!
