Our most frequently asked question is: How much would it cost to landscape by front and back garden? The trouble is there is no set answer as there are so many different materials, structures and elements to consider. I guess you could liken it to buying a new car or a new kitchen- some are more expensive than others as they have more gadgets or items. What we can do however, is show you some of our projects and what they involved and then give you a price for how much a similar project would cost. We hope it is of help to you and gives you some inspiration and guidance. Other places to look for inspiration when planning the design of your own garden would be Pinterest and Houzz.
In September 2017 we were contacted by garden designer Ivan Tucker from New Leaf Designs. We were approached to price up a design for a Reigate garden. After meeting with the clients and Ivan and producing a detailed quotation we were chosen as the contractor to construct their new garden.....
The client Peter contacted us knowing exactly what he wanted, right down to the type of water feature that he wanted. On the site visit Peter went through the different areas that he would like to be included such as a BBQ, fire pit, water feature and hedging. Susan and Peter discussed the area that the patio would cover and other important elements such as a certain width path to get the ride on mower off the drive and past the patio near the garage.
The clients approached us as a result of seeing our advert for our landscaping services in a magazine. Susan met with the clients and walked round to listen to their ideas. Then after two other site visits the project was agreed. The front drive was straightforward and the clients decided they needed to update the look of their drive but wanted to stick with gravel. We recommended a gravel grid stabilisation system to ensure the gravel would not rut, shoes and tyres would not sink in it and it would be stable for many years to come. It was decided that flint gravel would be the best choice as the clients did not want a 'golden' look gravel.
This project takes us to Ashtead in Surrey. We were approached by Mr and Mrs Reynolds to provide a quote for a new patio that they wanted constructing in their back garden. Ralph, our landscape foreman attended the quote and measured up. The brief was to install a slate patio with a pathway down to a shed and outbuilding. Due to the levels in the garden the patio would have to be raised and the client did not want any steps from the patio to the path due to taking some light machinery down it. There were a few changes to the design at the beginning and then the client decided on which one to go forward with. The next stage was ensuring the client was happy with the paving choice. Mr and Mrs Reynolds chose Green Slate from London Stone after visiting their showroom.
A large patio in Kashmir buff sandstone. The client, Lisa, contacted us after seeing our post on the Redhill and Reigate parent network Facebook page. She was looking for a company to take up her old rotten decking, sort out the levels and replace with an indian sandstone. We arranged a site visit and came out to meet Lisa and look around the site. Lisa knew the exact type of stone that she wanted so she had made trips to various stone suppliers and had chosen Kasmir Buff sandstone.
Artificial grass and Patio installation in Mint sandstone . The client, David, approached us to landscape his garden which was a blank canvas and needed something for entertaining his grandchildren, low maintenance and an outside area to eat. From our initial discussions we priced up some potential areas in the garden and the client asked us to come round to discuss the plan on site. Aye and I went for the site visit and sketched up a design with the client.
Complete Garden Makeover WeybridgeCinder Porcelain Paving . Our clients in Weybridge, Robert and Jerry, had had a few let downs with landscaping companies before they came to us. They had made quite a few decisions about their garden and had received quotes, a design and even had chosen a company to do the work. Unfortunately the company never turned up and so they were left looking for someone else who would construct their new dream garden. Jerry's internet search led them to us and so after some contact my phone and post, Susan went to Weybridge to meet with them to see the garden and discuss ideas. They already knew they wanted Porcelain paving, with new planting areas and had ear marked a pergola that they had spotted at the Chelsea flower show.
