A leaking existing pond had largely filled in over time. Our client wanted a new pond and had a idea in mind, together we came up with the design for a more formal looking pond
The resulting pond and surrounding paving sit very nicely in this corner of the garden, once the grass had been reseeded and had grown back the pond look as though it could have been here for a hundred years.
We were asked to design a deck and patio area around this hot tub. The aim was to link the hot tub with the rest of the garden and create a private feeling area at the same time
Using green Oak for the deck and steps and reclaimed flag stones for the paved area the result looks soft on the surrounding landscape. Small lights were incorporated into the steps and deck to enhance the mood when sitting in the tub at night
Our brief was to create a garden with an outdoor room, vegetable area and a feeling of space
The garden incorporates three raised beds for vegetables, a new flagstone path leading to the garden room complete with living Sedum roof. The curved trellis was build in place to add privacy to the garden
One of the larger clay lined ponds we have built, here we are getting ready to lay the bentonite clay liner. The trench around the edge is used to anchor the liner in place.
Later the same year the pond has settled in, complete with boardwalk and dipping platform.
Part of our brief was to reduce the amount of concrete used in this school development. To this end we used very large and heavy reclaimed stones to create the foundations for the low retaining walls in this courtyard
The courtyard at the Steiner Academy Hereford
We were commissioned to create a climbing structure using natural timber, here the large Chestnut posts have just arrived on site.
Once the Chestnut poles had been stripped of bark each joint was carefully cut and bolted together in accordance with our engineers specification. The result is a safe and beautiful play structure
Taken at Walford Primary school we had just started work on an outdoor teaching space. We had worked closely with the school and pupils to design and exciting space for recreation and learning.
The boardwalk creates a great circuit for the children while the central area makes a great summertime classroom.
Our brief was to design a garden that would open up the space, bring in some flowing water and make several seating spaces
We used Welsh building stone and Herefordshire flag stones to terrace the garden and create the sitting areas, the slow flowing water moved over a bed of pebbles and gravel.
These photos show the before and after shots of each project.
We hope you agree that each one is an improvement!
