City garden, Clifton, Bristol

Here’s some pictures of a small city garden in Clifton, Bristol

The work included, rendering of the wall to cover old brickwork, laying of grey porcelain paving, installation of a slot drain in front of bi-fold doors for drainage and installation and cutting in of two recessed manhole covers to disguise the manholes.

Finally screening in the form of cedar slats to create a more intermate garden space.

Difficult job as everything was going through the house with particularly tight access at the front. Also less that ideal weather (see pictures)

Looking forward to seeing it when the rendered walls have been painted

Front garden makeover Staple Hill, Bristol

Here’s some before and after pictures of a front garden makeover in Staple Hill Bristol we’ve just finished.

We chose to used Symphony vitrified porcelain paving for its contemporary look but also as its low maintenance – This is due to the vitrified process that ensures reduced water absorption.

The paving was edged with a grey rumble block edging to define the pathway.
Finally we constructed a small bin store and created a small raised bull-nose planting bed in the corner for interest.

Garden makeover in Bristol

Here are some pictures of the build process and finished garden we recently completed in Bristol.

It was a tricky project due to the slope of the garden. To get around this we opted to terrace the garden to make use of the space.

We incorporated circles into the design to add shape to the otherwise square garden and continued this theme in the terraced steps and in the patio shape at the top terrace.

The lawn area was rotovated and levelled to lessen the slope.

We used buff coloured slabs to lighten the garden but also opted for porcelain for its durability and contemporary look. The finished effect really transformed the garden space and makes for a fresh, spacious feel.

In addition to the garden we also erected 25 meters of closeboard fencing with concrete gravel boards which completed the look.

Have a look at the pictures below
