Project Description

Including New Sandstone, cobble setts, Hand built timber trellis fencing, New low maintenance planting scheme, Shingle and bench area.

Heather from St Albans Hertfordshire had very plain uninteresting garden and need some advice on how to make it look a little more exiting.  She contacted Carl from New Dawn Garden Life to see I they worked in the St Albans Hertfordshire area and to get some garden design and landscaping advice.

New Dawn used sandstone cobble stone setts to create a large sweeping flower border ready for the new planting scheme.  The plants included some structural plants and plants with interesting leaf shape and colour. This is to give interest all year round. You see in the photos that the garden is looking reasonably full despite it being a brand new planting in January.

The hand built trellis fencing creates a large attractive screen. The trellis is built from ground level about 600mm above existing fence height. This makes it look complete and neat. In time the new trellis fence will be covered in beautiful flowering climbing plants.

The cobblestone sets also provide the perfect frame work for some decorative shingle… a great place for a garden bench. Weed block membrane is cement secured under the cobble stone ensuing that it won’t poke through (a common problem that occurs in poorly constructed shingle schemes). The weed block effect is maximised meaning the customer can sit and relax on her new bench without worrying about any work that otherwise would need doing to keep her garden in order.

These are the comments that New Dawn Garden Life’s St Albans customer posted.

16:04 15/04/13 New Dawn Garden life have transformed our garden from an overlooked blank canvas into a beautiful and more private area that we can now enjoy and entertain in. Carl listened to our ideas and came up with a great design within our budget. His team has to be complimented. They are the nicest bunch of men that we’ve ever had doing work for us….so polite and friendly but also hard working, knowledgeable and determined to do a great job. I would highly recommend them and I will use them again. Great work!
