Marcus Richardson from Ed’s Garden Maintenance has recently had an interesting project.
The customer claimed to have little gardening skills but loved spending time in the garden. The brief was to come up with ideas to give the front and back garden a modern makeover, with a natural look to compliment the surrounding plantation and to create a garden with symmetrical clean lines and that requires little maintenance.
Marcus decided for the front garden to lay new turf, create a brick edging and add some gravel and shrubs. The back garden was more of a challenge as it was very steep and needed to be terraced. Marcus started by rebuilding the steps, installing a deck on the top tier and laying turf. The next step was to remove the shed and build a brick BBQ, South African style to retain the privacy that was provided by the shed. The decking was expanded to tie in with the rest of the garden and over the next few months Marcus will plant more shrubs to give a more secluded feel.
The customer said “I have been delighted with the result and I am looking forward to spending more time in the garden next summer.”
