Garden Rebuilds

July 7, 2013 by Sam

We like to work with each client through every stage of the project from initial design ideas through to  finalising heights and adding features. Using our experience and expertise we can help you realise your dream garden.

Property in Headingley, Leeds

Property at Hebden Bridge

This project included a few different stages, the dry stone walling consisted of around 200m of wall around the perimeter of the property and a large retaining wall which became a parapet wall towards the top. Notable features of the walls include through stones that were cut to the width of the wall (none protruding) and round tops all made on site. While building these walls we also removed 6 large tree stumps from the garden, repaired two flights of steps and patched up a field wall that had been damaged by the owners pigs.

Old boundary fence and gate replaced with newly built drystone wall, gate and posts. All built with freshly quarried stone brought in 20 ton loads. (please click images)

The other side of the lawn following a public footpath up the hill. the client was so pleased with our workmanship we also built around the heating oil tank, repointed a large flagged area and sandblasted an area of rock by the decking.

Animal enclosure, pillars, security gates and mortared wall with integrated planting areas.

Three tiered walled garden

Originally a barren hillside, this now consists of lawn, patio, flower beds, and veg patch with plenty of area still left for a shed, greenhouse and hot tub!   It was one of the first major jobs carried out solely by the junior members of the team and includes 5 flights of steps, 3 arches, 3 elevations and innumerable cheekends, corners and retaining walls! (finished in winter 2005)

A very steep hillside

Now with patio, steps, pond, rockery and several seating and planting areas. (Pictures taken on very grim winter’s day!)

Four tiered vegetable patch and flower garden

Following the course of the stream with steps and stepping stones to a menhir feature. Very large footing stones / foundation stones were used to help prevent water erosion.
