Garden Design & Build for Essex & London

Katrina went to present a garden design in North London. The client has a small courtyard and would like it to be workable space for both adults and the children. So with this design, Katrina can show that the space can become a multi-functional by creating a large open pergola to hang children’s play equipment. This would hang from a stainless steel rail which flows through the space. We can also create a relaxing space for the adults and incorporate a ratten sofa. The presentation went very well and Katrina is hoping we’ll get the build.

Katrina continues to work on the garden design in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. The plot is particularly difficult as it is has different level terraces with a 1,500 mm difference. Katrina is designing composite decking and relocating the steps to the left hand side of the space to allow for large upper terrace. The lower garden will be lawned and non-invasive bamboo will be cited to help combat the water logging. Katrina is due to present to the clients in the next fortnight.

The garden design in Thorpe Bay, Essex is nearly complete with the client selecting a different summerhouse and a smaller greenhouse. It is a heavily planted garden, with a large lawn to retain the family space. Katrina will return to the client and present on Saturday.

Matt and the build team are nearing completion on the landscaping project in Leytonstone, East London. The arches have now been erected and just the lighting and some finishing touches remain.

The garden build in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex is progressing well. 75% of the sandstone set pathway is now installed and the framework for the decking is complete. The composite boards should be fairly simple to install over the next few days. Next week the pathway will be completed and the posts for the screens will be installed. The client is to choose the colour for the Perspex panels once samples we have ordered arrive.
