The garden was originally a flat rough lawn. Three weeks later there is a patio facing the sun and newly sown lawn edged with herbaceous cottage garden plants.
This is the start of a project to break up rough concrete and improve drainage in a narrow space between the house, garage and boundary fence. Watch this space as the work progresses.
This was a small job to repair a rotten fence brought down by a smothering of ivy. The client removed the ivy himself and wanted to re-use the existing gate. We’re always pleased to recycle and reuse.
We’ve been travelling around a lot recently. The last job was making a palace for guinea pigs in Kent. This one is a slate-roofed barn in a garden in Buckinghamshire. Designed in consultation with the client and built from scratch. As usual assisted by Milo. Wood was sourced from our experts at http://www.linnellbros.co.uk in Silverstone.
We don’t believe in endless blogging so we’ve been quiet for a while. This week Mervyn has been landscape part of a school playground in anticipation of new reception children playing in the area. Day 1 was hot and humid. Day 2 it poured with rain. But Mervyn never gives in. Here are some pics of the work and the finished scene. Machinery hired from http://www.wtphire.com/
I enjoyed myself this week clearing the cottage garden. What’s not to like about skips and diggers! Jeanette stood in the road acting as banksman and was amused by children passing by who were thrilled by the big toys. The skips were hired from http://grahamchurchillplant.co.uk/
