Garden Design Case Study – Dukes Wood, Crowthorne

<< Back

This client wanted a new garden and Owen put them in touch with one of the garden designers we know and trust to come up with a garden design that the client felt made the best use of their entire garden. 

After the ground clearance and excavation of the top area of the garden, stone walls that needed to be taken down and existing stone steps, the plants that were to be kept will be dug out and put to one side for future use. 

The existing York stone wall was renewed in the sections as per design using stone already on site.

The same bricks were then used to create the four steps that take you from the existing patio up to the new lawn area.

A porcelain patio was installed with the same slabs used for the top of the steps.

A timber pergola was installed around the grassed planting area. The grass was artificial turf.
Some low retaining walls were built using good quality pressure treated softwood sleepers. These were supported by being laid upon a concrete footing and strong timber fixing screws.

Patio slabs matching the new veranda were used as stepping stones to take you from the new patio to the illusion door. 

The new planting borders were extensively dug over with weeds, roots and debris removed.
