I was just going through some old photographs and I came across these from last year when I was asked to design and build a ramp suitable for a powered wheelchair to access the high threshold of this bungalow. The owner asked me because she didn’t like the look of any ramps she had seen […]

The importance of front gardens.

Post Image

Front gardens are often neglected or paved over in favour of parking and yet they can make such a difference to the appearance of your home. Not to mention giving you a real warm welcome feeling when you arrive home after a hard day. Most often people feel that the front garden doesn’t matter so […]

Post Image

Any landscaper will tell you that a single bold statement feature can hold together an entire garden. This project involved taking into consideration three major points of view.

None of the areas are very big but they go around almost three and half sides of the property creating a challenging design commission for me but, one with lots of possibilities.     The client wanted water features, places to entertain, somewhere […]
