Project Description

Including, Sandstone paving, turfing, sandstone cobble setts, drainage system, plant borders.

Andy from Lewisham, South London SE13 hand a small town garden that desperately need Landscaping. He contacted New Dawn Garden Life to see if they travelled to the Lewisham area and for some garden design and landscaping advice.

He said very scruffy garden and wanted it sorted before their wedding day.

He wanted a low maintenance garden with a few places to do some fun planting. His wife-to-be wanted to be able to sit out and enjoy her garden without worrying about to much work to keep it nice. She also had different levels that needed a solution.

We created a garden with two seating areas.  The solution to the differing levels is also a place that can be planted.

Have a look at the pictures.

The path and patio are Indian sandstone that will look great for years to come.  The drainage system allows the paving to be brought to the threshold of the house and protects the house from damp.  Sandstone cobbles form the plant borders making a visual impact and low maintenance.  The divide between the two levels are railway sleepers that can be planted forming a living retainer.

19:06 14/06/13New Dawn did a brilliant job transforming our jungle into a stunning garden. During the design process, they came up with different ways of improving the end result, but were also very flexible with specific requirements we had. The guys delivered a quality garden and cleaned up after themselves – despite the only access being through the house. Good experience from start to finish.
