Garden Makeover, Congleton, Cheshire

Date: April 2022

Location: Congleton, Cheshire

Project: Garden makeover

Description: The client who had lived at the property for over 30 years decided the garden was long over due for a makeover. So they asked me me to design them a completely different garden to what they had.

For this garden I designed them a new seating area in the top corner of the garden to capture the sun all day and evening. I designed a decking area which is big enough for dining and relaxing on. To the side of this, a contemporary style border featuring a collection of tree ferns and topped with decorative pebbles, and large Indian stone pavers to connect the house with the decking. The lawn was to be reshaped to a crescent moon shape. To the left hand side, a large raised inverted sleeper bed with a built in bench an half pergola. The raised bed was planted with a mixture of trees, large shrubs, herbaceous plants and climbers, and running in front of the raised bed, a path of slate chippings with a water feature and box ball shrubs.

“Following an initial survey and consultation  Ryan provided us with a plan for garden renovation.  The work carried out by all of Ryan’s team was of an exceptionally high standard and we were kept informed throughout the entire project.  Any issues (drainage) encountered were dealt with swiftly. Once the construction work was complete the garden really came to life when Ryan finished all the planting, incorporating our particular requirements.  

The end result far exceeded our expectations and now look forward to many years of enjoyment in our new garden. 

We would have no hesitation in recommending Ryan and his team for any garden renovation project,  the whole project was efficiently managed and all members of the team were a pleasure to have working for us.”
