Landscaping recommendations for works carried out on the front and side of our house

Postby brigittehalliday » Thu Jan 20, 2022 2:47 pm

The work needed involves:

1. Widening the driveway by about 1m, so we can park a car easily and re-charge our car. 
2. Taking up the existing paving and re-laying sets including continuing through the gate (we have seen some that we really like which are 10cm square). We’d like the sets continued up to the steps at the side of the house as the ground is rough concrete.
3. Taking out the collapsed internal low level wall, steps, brick plant box and strip of concrete on the ground in front of the flower bed.
4. Re-building the steps and low internal wall.
5. Re-pointing the front and side and boundary brick walls and top with grey engineering brick - the boundary wall may need re-building?
6. Render the brick wall adjacent to the house with the gate so that it matches the house.
7. Refit a new lockable gate (yet to be chosen)
8. Digging a narrow ditch and putting down invasive bamboo lining to stop next doors bamboo plant from growing beneath our garden.
9. Re-laying some patio stones at the back/side of the house where they have moved and laying some more gravel/core where needed. We want to let the house out in the future.

HI
We used London City Stone for a step re-build, wall, railings and new path. Really pleased with the end result and they were delightful to deal with from start to finish. Not the cheapest but I am glad we went with them and very happy to recommend.

We ourselves went on a recommendation from a very happy neighbour.

Phone number of the person (Neil) who we dealt with throughout is +44 7968 316070

Good luck.
