Location: Alsager, Cheshire
Project: Garden Design and Construction
Description: The client wanted a small sitting area outside the door with the main patio in the top corner to catch the evening sun and the garden to entertain their family with seating area and space for the grandchildren. They also wanted an area where they could grow some fruit and vegetables and borders which they could plant up themselves. The garden has been finished with Raj Green Indian stone, a raised bed made from sleepers and a lavender hedge linking the two patio areas. Borders edged with Everedge were also installed for a crisp look, and three feature trees to balance the garden.
Client’s testimonial: “Having seen the garden Ryan had designed and installed for a neighbour, we asked him to come and help us to plan our garden on a new build estate. I love plants and wanted to do most of the planting and placing of shrubs and perennials myself, but we needed some help with design and doing the heavy structural work. We were both impressed with how Ryan listened and took into consideration all we wanted, the aspect of the garden and our budget. Within days he came up with a plan which, with a few minor adjustments is what we now have. We are delighted with the end result!
We now have a large raised bed for vegetables and some soft fruit, two patio areas, one of which gets the morning sun and the other the evening sun. We have a lawn large enough to play family games on and borders where shrubs, roses herbaceous plants and bulbs can be grown. Ryan bought and planted four small trees and 2 large shrubs, but we are enjoying choosing and positioning everything else ourselves. Throughout Ryan has kept us informed of how things were going and he and those helping with the project have come and gone without much disruption.
We now look forward to many years of enjoyment as the garden matures.”
