Hillside Terraced Garden
Transform a steep garden slope into and attractive usable garden space.
To turn a very steep slope into an easy to tend terraced garden. The customers are very keen gardeners and enjoy gardening but it was impossible being very steep, mostly inaccessible with poor clay soil with nowhere to sit in the sun. They wanted us to make the most of their space with an informal design as well as a water feature to add sound and movement.
What we did…
Initially we excavated the garden and removed much subsoil from site with diggers and dumpers. We then built a winding set of steps to gently lead you up the garden with curved stone retaining walls either side to create informal terraces using local walling stone to suit the area. Access paths and a curved patio for enjoying the sun were then laid and the flowerbeds were filled with topsoil and compost. We then took the customer to our wholesale nursery and chose together a colourful, varied and interesting planting scheme that will soften the stonework. A natural pond was also built with a waterfall trickling in to it to create a relaxing focal point.
The Perfect Garden
The customers now spend lots of time in their garden tending their plants, adding season bedding and vegetables and sitting out in the sun or by their chiminea on the patio.
What our customer said…
We are both delighted with the finished result and thank you again for all of the hard work, friendliness and professionalism demonstrated by the entire team throughout the project.
Put simply, the garden looks amazing! The area has long been unsightly and unusable. However, having taken on board our needs and requirements, the vision you had of creating a two tone gravel garden was exactly what we were looking for; high impact whilst at the same time offering low maintenance.
We now look forward to using the area more in the evening and enjoying the space you have created.
I would thoroughly recommend Landscape Creations to anyone wishing to carry out a similar project and thank you again for your kind offer of keeping in touch with tips and advice on how to keep the plants in good health and order. Again fantastic service!
