When designing your garden there are several things we have to consider to ensure you get the most out of your outdoor living space. Installing a new garden can include replacing your existing decking, turf and patio in order to create a whole new exterior look for your family and guests to admire. When deciding whether you should have a patio or decking installed you should consider the look, the time you have spare to maintain it, and the location you wish to have it installed. Patios come in a wide variety of colours, textures and materials including concrete, exposed aggregate, natural stone and flagstone. Patios may incur a longer installation time than decking, however, they require less maintenance and have a very long life-span. Decking is a cost-effective alternative to a patio and you can choose either composites or natural wood to construct it out of. Choices of material include pressure-treated lumber, redwood, cedar and hardwoods, which can all be installed quickly and easily. Our designers can create you a landscape design for the border of your garden complete with flowers, plants, trees and shrubbery that complement your garden and maximise the potential of the available space. Popular choices of flower include lavender, sedum, rudbeckia, geranium and phlox. The most common trees chosen for gardens include alder, ash, English oak, hawthorn, hazel, holly and silver birch, although we take all personal requests as long as the soil depth is sufficient.
A popular element of landscape design is the growth or installation of grass through the process of planting or turfing. Turfing is the process of laying partially grown lawn onto a soil base as an efficient way of creating grass in your garden or property. Whilst grass seeds can take up to a month to fully germinate and then up to six months to be fully grown, turf can be ready to use within a few weeks of installation. Before we lay new turf, we must prepare the ground to give the turf a good base to establish roots and grow on. Preparing the soil involves eliminating any weeds including couch grass and levelling out the ground using a rake to ensure the lawn grows evenly. We also treat the ground with nutrients and lay down a fresh, good quality layer of compost before installing the turf. You need to maintain your turf by applying feed, regular watering, scarification, top dressing and aeration to ensure it continues to grow healthily. Different types of turf contain different ratios of rye, bents and fescues, depending on the type of lawn you require for your property.
Fencing and Gates
In addition to adding aesthetic value to your property, installing fencing and gates as a boundary can add a sense of security. Popular types of fencing for homes are concrete posts, wooden fence panels and picket fencing, however palisade fencing is a more popular choice for commercial properties due to the level of security it provides. All our fences are fastened into the ground using concrete to keep them secure during extreme weather and damage. Types of gate available are hardwood gates, softwood gates, double driveway gates, automatic gates and gate pillars, which all provide different levels of security, although we can custom make gates upon request. We understand that replacing fencing and gates is a large investment to make, which is why we aim to build only the highest quality of fencing using locally sourced materials where possible, whether you require traditional or contemporary fencing for your property.
We take care of the planning, preparation and installation involved in your landscaping project, and will appeal
planning permission for you if this is necessary. Working in Chelmsford
