In our previous blog, I dealt with the basic garden design concept and the construction of the raised pavement, which defined and dictated the build of this garden. Now in phase two, we will install the feature wall and water feature with the built-in planter, followed by three areas of Ipe decking and additional Ipe fencing. Feature Wall with Water …
The Design This is the first stage of our current project in London, NW6. It is quite a complicated garden design, comprising of three areas of Ipe hardwood decking, separated by two areas of Travertine paving. The travertine will also be used to create a feature wall, with a water blade and raised planter to the front of the collection …
We began to construct this garden just over a year ago, finishing at the beginning of December 2011. A time of year not normally perceived as ideal for such a major project, particularly when taking into account the vast amount of groundwork and excavation involved. Rain is your biggest enemy under such circumstances, but the gods smiled upon us. It …

We were to create a terrace with built in seating for entertaining and dining at the sunny far end of the garden that would be linked to the house with a new lawn.
This was our second project for this client, after installing a bespoke steel awning and made to measure softwood trellis panels in the back garden some 18 months ago. This time, we were called back to construct a wooden deck on the second floor roof terrace.
There is more to fencing than just creating boundaries. The right type of fence can provide all sorts of benefits for a garden. Not only does a fence provide security and privacy for a back garden, but it also can be an attractive feature in itself and provide a structure where climbing plants can grow.
The design of sustainable gardens is closely intertwined with the protection of natural ecosystems. It utilises creative yet practical garden techniques that do not interfere with the essential processes of nature.
Now that you have achieved your dream garden, it is time to face the practical side of things, i.e. garden maintenance. A colourful flower bed or a well manicured lawn does require attention to keep looking at its best throughout the seasons. For the plants to grow and bloom, there are specific tasks that need to be done beyond their …
Even when summer comes to an end and the cooler days are right around the corner, tending to the garden is a year-long pastime. Autumn is a fantastic season for garden maintenance if you are not so fond of the hot, humid days. This is the ideal time to condition the garden for spring and plant vegetable crops that can …
Our Client had recently moved into this prime period property, only a few yards from Hyde Park, just off the Bayswater Road. The property had no garden as such, occupying the end position of a cobbled mews.
