One of the biggest frustrations with hard landscaping is being able to imagine what you want without being able to sketch it out. Often it’s a struggle even to describe it, because what you’re after is an effect, or based on an idea you saw somewhere else some time ago. We can help!
We offer advice on all aspects of hard landscaping – including design – drawing on our many years’ experience of what does, and doesn’t, suit different styles of garden. We build patios, paths, retaining walls, drives and brickwork. We create features that will last for years because we plan well and build to the highest standards.
From paving to pergolas, fountains to fencing, hard landscape features are what gives the landscape form and structure on which the softer elements can perform.

Unfortunately, many people see the hard landscaping as an afterthought or the underlying current of good landscape design and this is unfortunately, a mistake. It should be your first consideration and your first design element.
The hard landscaping not only gives you something to build on, but it will also solve the bulk of many basic purposes- diverting water and drainage, the basis of your outdoor living spaces, preventing erosion, and the very foundation you need to create a long-lasting space that brings your property value up.
