CHOOSING THE RIGHT MATERIALS
The materials chosen for a landscaping project can really make or break the design of a garden, and our wealth of knowledge and experience in garden design are at your disposal to help you choose just the right materials and products to suit your particular requirements. It is important to strike the right balance between functionality and aesthetic value.
Our reliable, long-established suppliers provide us with only top-quality materials which ensure beautiful and durable results. Shown here are just a few selections, chosen from a very broad range of fine materials we install regularly.
Materials to Consider
We recommend natural Indian stone for areas to be paved, as it presents unique and varied textures and colours. Indian stone is truly “Nature’s Masterpiece”…it has been formed over thousands of years, and its enduring beauty will add quality and value to your garden and your home.
“Autumn Brown” is one of the lovely shades we select to provide a natural look and feel. It is especially suited to traditionally-themed gardens. With more contemporary designs, “Mint Fossil” introduces a soft yet modern effect.
You can rely on our experience and expert knowledge of natural Indian Stone when selecting treatments for your garden.
If you want an eye-catching, and comfortable seating area which will also blend naturally with the rest of your garden, talk to Jonathan about “Decking”.
You should always bear in mind that decking requires annual maintenance, not only to keep it looking like new, but (and very importantly) also, to ensure that it retains its value and gives you years of pleasure and service.
Steel cabling is often used in conjunction with the installation of decked areas to lend a more contemporary look to a timber installation. The cabling also helps to “open up” the space visually and helps improve visibility in both directions.
Nothing can detract more from the look of an otherwise-beautiful garden than a poorly-maintained deck which has begun to lose its colour and finish.
We are here to assist you in selecting the best style and quality of deck for your purposes, and to provide tips in maintenance.
We usually suggest edging a lawn, as it does help to define and accentuate the shape of the area. Many different types and styles of edging can be installed depending on the special look you wish to achieve.
Edging is also a very practical feature, as it does help to reduce the amount of care and trimming required.
Some of the more popular and effective styles are shown here, and we can design many variations on these to suit the particular application.
A lovely, colourful planted border can make a vast difference to the appearance of your garden. To enjoy it even more, you will want to keep maintenance time to a minimum. We solve this problem by first installing a “membrane” over the soil and then covering it with an aggregate in order to reduce the need for weeding.
