Summit Landscapes – Large Garden Redesign

Redesign

This large garden redesign project in Potton, Cambridgeshire, was one of our biggest landscaping jobs to date. We moved and used hundreds of tonnes of materials and paved over 250m² of Indian Sandstone. As usual, we started with the mammoth job of excavating the large back garden and saw tonnes of spoil, waste and building debris removed from the site.

Landscaping

Working our way from the furthest part of the back garden, we dug out and built a double stone wall to efficiently control and direct the natural stream that runs from east to west through the middle of the garden, allowing the flowing water to become the main focal point of the garden.

Planting & Sandstone Paving

The far bank was left as one large flower bed that was prepared with top soil, ready to plant. We turfed the near side bank with fresh grass and paved with beautiful Indian Sandstone. This Sandstone formed three semi-circular patios on different levels. The largest patio had a decorative balustrade and came straight from the back door, creating the rear patio from the house.

We paved pathways in Indian Sandstone on both sides of the house with borders for planting on either side. The paths ran round to the front of the house where they met a freshly-turfed banked front garden. We also laid a new sloped block paved driveway.
