Emergency Landscaping & Garden Reconstruction | Boxgrove, Chichester

After a bus crash left this Sussex Garden severely damaged we were asked to make good and reconstruct the areas.

The crash caused huge damage to an old Sussex flint wall and the impact caused glass to shatter all over the front of the property.

For safety and due to the damage caused we had no choice but to start from scratch.

First up we removed all the debris and glass which included excavating the lawn, shingle areas and bedding areas.

Once a blank canvas was re-established we started with installing new wooded shuttering to retain the top soil, new lawn then separated the areas from the planting and shingle sections.

We levelled off the lawn area using topsoil and rakes followed by re-turfing and back filling the flower beds with fresh topsoil.

Finally we re-pruned the damaged trees and removed any damaged branches. New plants and hedges were installed to replace the damaged ones and finally we added back the marine shingle to finish off the pathway areas.

The finished garden looks great alongside the the newly constructed flint wall.

You would never know such a collision took place!

Landscape Design & Build | Chichester City Centre

This garden design project was an absolute pleasure to complete.

Set in the heart of chichester, with it's incredible views of chichester CATHEDRAL, we were spoilt for choice regarding the POSSIBILITIES of such a sought after location.

Working closely with the owners, we decided to strip the old garden back to a blank canvas and start again. The areas had been left far too long unattended and the garden had become overgrown and unmanageable.

For practicalities, we went with a sweeping pathway which wrapped the bedding areas. A large patio area at both ends of the garden complimented the views and sun traps.

Old style brick edging, bespoke solid oak pergolas and long trellis boundary beams all featured heavily in the design.

Once the planting was finally installed the garden came back to life. This is most certainly one of our showcase garden builds!

Landscape Garden Design and Build Project - Yapton, West Sussex - Phase 2

After 10 weeks of incredible work from James and the team we have finally reached the finish line!

We are absolutely delighted with the results and look forward to maintaining the garden in the future.

Our tree surgeons and tree services were a large part of the project removing approximately 30 tons of dead, dying and diseased trees and hedges, brambles and bamboo.

Once the tree and shrub removal was completed James and the groundworks team made light work of the levelling, excavation and irrigation, not to mention the new pond and York Stone installation.

A truly enjoyable project end to end. Once the grass seed starts to establish we will get the first cut out the way, then more photos to highlight the transformation!

Landscape Garden Design and Build Project - Yapton, West Sussex - Phase 1

We originally visited this stunning property in 2017. Here are some images of the initial site clearance prior to garden design.

More before and after photos of the clearance...

We then had to wait a few months whilst the tree and conservation applications were approved to further remove larger tree specimens which had been highlighted as dead or dying. A few tree reductions also took place. Watch this space!

Landscape Design Project | Cambrai Avenue, Chichester.

This week our Landscaping team carried out a garden transformation in Chichester, West Sussex.

The work description was as follows:

1. Remove shingle and ground matting from front entrance. Remove stumps and level off area.

2. Create two wooden raised beds either side of the rear back garden.

3. Create divide between existing garden and new hight shingle path leading to garden studio.

4. Instal Indian sandstone stepping path leading to garden studio.

5. Infil around new Indian sandstone stepping path and raised beds with marine shingle.

6. Remove stumps in the back garden. 

Despite the dreadful weather at the beginning of the week we managed to complete the job before Virgin Media took up half the street installing fiberoptic broadband!

The final garden design looks great! Once the borders have been planted out and the grass seed begins to tie in the two garden areas we are certain the small garden will have big appeal!
