A New Garden from Design to Completion Emerges from a very tired garden by creating a blank canvas We were able to create manageable levelsThe end result has turned a Garden with very difficult access into one
which is a joy to use and to relax in
whilst soaking up the stunning views
though the changing Seasons
In the Grounds of Anthony House, Torpoint,….is this old Coach House, which our Client is restoring to an Exceptional Standard, including the courtyards, walls and gardens.
A section of a 3.6 metre high perimeter wall, that had long been demolished, has been rebuilt using lime mortar and stone from on site, not shown here; It is best viewed by taking a stroll along the byway that leads to Wilcove, [Another wall of ours can be seen in Dormy Avenue Mannamead],……… however here are some other examples of the work that we carried out.
The brief here was to create a fairly low maintenance garden with a variety of Relaxing Spaces. The picture here is the finalised design
This was a Mammoth undertaking, a crane was needed to lift a mini Takeuchi digger in and out of the garden. As a result
the levels here have changed dramatically; Main Drains covered before are now accessible via inset inspection covers, and the Garden is now far more manageable offering many areas to relax in all with different views of the garden.
The brief: to create an easily managed space for entertaining family and friends, with a wow factor. The front garden to be maintained with the minimum of work. The front pathway linking the two areas to flow through seamlessly.
Here the use of natural stone works very well in creating a pleasing entrance to this property and garden; the huge granite slabs show some of the tool marks and drill marks use to split the granite.
The job lot of Granite came from a quarry near Bodmin Moor, and included cubed hedging stones,,and around 18 of huge slabs earmarked for steps.
This courtyard was old, and dated with decking that was rotting away, uncertain as to what we would find. We went down the design route.
It has certainly brightened up this courtyard,I think, to great effect!
Here we used Stonemarket’s Granite revolve paving, combined with the project packs of grey granite, further around the property we used the blush variant, that offers a faint tinge of warmth to the paving.
The curved bespoke steps use’s the blush variant; the former for these were made on a cad program to provide the even joints and paving size.
The grey granite used here is sourced from Lantoom quarry, and works well, the raised beds clad in the same granite, brings a clean contemporary feel to this courtyard; used for skateboarding by the boys during the day, and entertaining in the evening. The coping on the raised beds provides additional seating, and space for the odd glass or two.
The Pizza Oven originally started off life as a barbecue but developed into this . Whoosh!!
This project was a joy to do for a very fine and well travelled Lady. A Lady that new exactly what she wanted, this made me draw on my artistic skills and then some. here copper porcelain and Ipe are brought together in a modern contemporary style
Here are a few of the driveways that we have installed over the years.
Things haven’t really changed that much since Roman Britain, apart from these salient points.
