Bespoke design to rear garden and Driveway upgrading

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. The brief was for a fresh contemporary look but keeping in mind the period property.

We have proposed using a blend of different materials and colour to create interest,  functional areas and privacy, along with establishing new levels to negate the sloping lawn and the upgrading of steps from concrete to a facing brick which  is sympathetic to the building facade. Lots of modern looking planters will double as seating surround the upper terrace and a modern look fence will provide screening and a back drop for the clients planting plan.

The extensive drivewaywas resurfaced by replacing the gravel with a rustic tumbled edge block paving.

The full project was completed in 8 working weeks to a fixed price quotation.
