Fresh and funky - Little Venice

The client, Raksa, says ‘Wow, what an amazing job you guys did! I can't believe it's the same garden. Thank you soooo much! ’

We Say - this garden was a pleasure to build. The brief was quite loose and we were free to use good quality materials to transform the garden into a much more contemporary space.

First job was to clear all years of weeds that had taken root. Then sorting out the levels and compacting a good layer of MOT substrate to support the paving. Black Limestone was chosen to give the modern feel required, pointed with a dark grey resin mix.

White, rendered raised beds were created to emphasise the modern feel. Trellis of course had to be hardwood lateral trellis. We used Meranti hardwood which has a natural lovely colour and grain. At the foot of the stairs yet more hardwood, Balau this tme for the decking, which had to be stepped to cope with the uneven surface

Finally the planting; low maintenace but with plenty of interest and colour. Grasses, Lavender, Hebe and so on with the features of an Olive tree and a Magnolia to lend a Japanese stylistic theme
