Contemporary garden in Monifieth

Date: July/August 2015

 This back garden posed a few problems. Mainly with the level difference between the house (conservatory) and the garden which also sloped away from the house.

Garden re- design.

Date: February/June 2015

Our Dundee client tasked us with re-designing their large featureless back garden. A conservatory is being added in the summer but our clients wished use of the garden before the conservatory was installed. Being a flexible company we suggested a 2 stage project. With plenty of garden space we suggested leaving the patio work outside the house and conservatory until later in the summer. This was acccepted by the client and works commenced in early February. Large sleepers have been used for retaining and doubling up as raised planters. The slope was reduced and a new lawn laid, feature steps will welcome the user from the conservatory, leading up through the garden.

Raised feature deck with glass screen steps and patio

Date: February 2015

Our client asked us for a solution to their tired patio set up.Decking was suggested to overcome the substantial height difference between internal floor level and external ground. The client was keen to avoid the feature looking like " a box" and suggested a brick surround to match the house. Although an expensive option this direction was persued. Finding a brick to match the 30 year old house proved difficult, again our client took a pro active approach and together we found the bricks down in Edinburgh.We offered a choice of balustrade and the client opted for a clear glass look. The result is an outstanding feature, adding a luxury item and an extension to the room beyond the patio doors.

Bridging the Gap!!!!

Date: March 2014

Our Dundee clients had an area of ground which was 3 metres above their main garden and unsued due to it's sloping nature and access from street side. The unused upper garden could be an asset to the home if taking advantage of the elevated position within a densely populated modern estate of 3 storey town houses. We suggested joining both levels with an external spiral staircase to compliment the clients desire for a contemporary look in keeping with the modern building and it's archtectural feature's. The lower garden was modernised with black limestone paving replacing the old buff concrete slabs and the new lawn was edged with limestone cobbles, a deck and planter completed the lower garden. The upper garden slope was excavated, retained and a suitable level surface created to allow for a reasonably sized deck. Timber planters and an access path were added and of course the Meditterean style spiral staircase.

Create new garden entrance

Date: Feb 2014

Our Dundee client had a peice of land to the side access of the house, the back door exited onto the land which was rarely used. Furthermore, there was a boundary fence preventing any access to the driveway only 6 metres away. Our reccomendation was to open up the fence with gated access and path to the driveway and re-pave the side aspect. The client now has use of the land and ease of access from the rear entrance to the driveway.

Custom Designed Courtyard

Date: Dec 2013

Our Dundee client's Victorian Villa required a new look to the front aspect,the site was elevated and north facing,with little sunshine during the year and little obvious approach to the front and side access doors.

Clearance and re-instatement of overgrown plot

Date: Dec 2013

Our Dundee client introduced us to an elevated section of their garden which had gone un- maintained for many years. The remit was simple, clear it all away and return the plot to use. Access proved to be the overriding issue here, with many steps and paths to negotiate to get to the elevated site. A labour intensive operation, with 28 loads of green waste to remove from site and dispose to waste site, with no access for mechanical equipment it was literally removal by hand to small van and away.

Bespoke design to rear garden and Driveway upgrading

Date: Nov 2013

Our Dundee clients recently moved into this victorian villa and invited us to come up with proposals to re-design their back garden. The current situation is a mixture of raised patio, beds, decking with sloping lawns and "bolt on" features added in previous years.

We produced a design which ticked all the right boxes.

Upgrading and enlarging terrace plus a tidy up to rear garden

Date: Sept 2013

Our Dundee client asked us to remove a portion of the raised lawn to create more patio space. The current concrete surface had been down for many years and a new natural stone surface was requested.

Summer 2013 newsletter

Date: August 2013

The year has become very busy with high demand for small and medium sized projects. We like to think  ( our customers may tell us different!) that we can respond quickly to a request for a small project, eg perhaps one man for a week, we can fulfill those requests with a flexible workforce including the pre planning tasks of project scope and planning, the old addage of "if you can start tomorrow etc"   does not necessarily fit our profile.

Revamp of back garden to very low maintenance

Date: June 2013

Patio,seating area on sloping site

Major works to provide feature entrance steps, feature patio door steps and substantial retaining walls and associated steps and paving.

Winding and sloping stairway with matching terrace

Date: April/May 2013

Our Dundee client wanted to upgrade the current gravelled access paths to a more stable surface. The height difference from door to pavement was 1400mm over a distance of 8 metres. The client did not want too many steps ( 8 would be required) so a solution was required to create a path with steps taking the curve into consideration. A real size display was constructed for the client to "test" before commiting to the project.

Steps and Terracing

Date: April 2013

 

Brechin Garden Project

Date: February 2013

Our Brechin clients asked us to come up with a design for the garden space to the front of the house. They had a good idea of what they wanted but required assistance to bring it all together and in a layout to balance modern living and low maintenance with traditional country lifestyles such as veggie growing plots. The original entrance gate needed to was resited to be nearer the front door. The front garden revamp will provide, a hardstanding surface in Natural Sandstone to house front allowing amenity and entertaining space, Bespoke raised planters combine low maintenance and ease of access, for herbs and flower displays. The new lawn will comprise a 25mm multi spun yarn artificial turf system split by a central path which leads to the raised planters at the bottom of the garden. a small picket style fence will surround the lawn providing a temporary barrier between the young canine companion and newly planted vegetables. 

Hardstanding,Paths and Steps

Date: Aug/Sept 2012

Our Dundee clients asked us to provide an aesthetic and functional solution to the current gravel paths and concrete hardstanding of their Victorian Villa. The new curved and sloping paths, joining upper and lower levels would require careful and accurate building skills to ensure a balanced appearance to either side of the central and circular lawn. The concrete hard standing surrounding the house was removed and replaced with Natural Indan Sandstone including  a feature inset "Nautical Star" reflecting the clients Naval vocation. The entrance at street level was extended to give a more open feel when entering the property.
