Our clients contacted us with a design produced by Aylwin Nissen. The original garden was main laid to lawn with lots of shrubs and a old yorkstone patio.
The brief was to construct a new patio that was in keeping with the age of the property with a circular brick raised bed to house a old olive tree. The client's yorktone was to be reused for a stone circle feature. We met with the clients and the designer to discuss the project in the more detail and firm up the smaller details. The clients saved some of the existing plants by relocating them to a temporary border.
As the landscaping progressed it was decided that irrigation would be installed. Brick edging was also added on to tie in the raised bed with the patio. A new fence was installed on one side of the garden where some large trees were removed. The paving chosen was tumbled black sandstone from London Stone and pointed with GFTK in stone grey.
The trees were planted by our team however the rest of the planting will commence in the Spring.
We completed the job in October 2019.
A guide price for a project this size (not including planting or designer fee) would be around £30,000 - £35,000inc VAT.
