Water feature made using a butyl rubber liner for a strong, long lasting product. Water is pumped from the main pond to the top of the rock feature creating a natural looking waterfall. The edges of the pond are planted with relavant plants that suit the damp soil conditions.
Long timber pergola with random rectangular paving path running to a circle made of block paving with a feature clipped box spiral. Supporting columns were then planted with climbers and the borders on either side planted to give all year round interest and colour.
Circular raised planting bed made with frost resistent bricks. This feature was planted with a range of herbs that would survive well in the sunny position with little watering necessary. A small ornamental tree was planted to create a focus at the centre. Block paving creates the circular walkway around the brickwork.
Raised brickwork features like this are often used to make water features, as their strength can withstand the weight of the water and the height can be created so the wall can be used as seating.
Brick piers made from old stock bricks create a bold feature with the type of brick matched with that of the house. The timber on top was then countersunk to give a more solid appearance in keeping with this type of feature. Using stock bricks like these instantly ages the feature and works well if the house is of an older period.
All types of timber fencing are undertaken with high quality pressure treated softwood used. This example was constructed on a low retaining brick wall made from engineering brick to prevent soil build up from the higher level of the neighbours garden. Timber can then be stained to fit in with the surroundings.
This style of 'arris rail' fencing in far stronger than panel fencing that is commonly used and has the added advantage that it can be constructed on ground which is changing in level.
