Landscaping a garden. New patio - Calcot / Reading.

New back garden patio area in a garden in Calcot


Not beating about the bush let"s see what the patio area looked like before and after.

And some still photos of the same area..


Our job was to remove old decking, clear out old patio, and gravel. Install new gully and channel drains including all the connections needed.


The next stage planned for this garden by the owners is to lay artificial grass - someone else"s job as we don"t do it.

Due to the above the edges around the new patio have been left as is.

From start to finish this company was very professional. I even received a video of the job that had been completed. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be using them in the future for our customers.

Topiary work as a weekend relax

Together with my great son we"ve done a quick topiary work on this conifer.


One of us was responsible for cutting itself whilst the other for tidiness afterwards. I think both of us have done a brilliant job ! 🙂

Topiary work as a weekend relax

Planting in Shinfield, Reading.

We"ve done some planting together with turfing and edging job for this customer in Shinfield already, but we"ve been asked to come up with ideas for another area... So the idea was to create something like below



Originally the area was quite empty with one biggish viburnum and looked like this


Once cleared and rotovated it turned into a plain field..


And here we have started ... Lonicera"s are in as a frame for some flowering perennials - we"ve given them 5 enclosures, one more than originally planned. Also some background along the fence - this one is my favourite plant.. wait and see for yourself, we should have that completed shortly.

Now waiting for more plants to be delivered..


Planting started but not yet completed


TO BE CONTINUED ...
