“I was pleased to see the garden change over the weeks. The men had to construct the decking to one side of the garden, they made a solid framework before laying the decking boards in place. This was all done to a high quality and nothing was too much trouble. The existing flags had to be removed, and the design Astek had suggested worked perfectly, the patio now has a curve with setts around the edge and lawn. The planting of the beds around the sides of the garden were done with experience and knowledge of the plants and the whole area was covered with bark mulch to prevent weeds, making it low maintenance. i also had a lawn laid, which was laid perfectly level and I was given instructions on how to get the best from my lawn. I can honestly say I would recommend Astek for their garden design knowledge, paving experience, decking skills and their knowledge of the right plants to suit your requirements and personality.” – Liz Ashley
This garden was overgrown and had some mature trees that blocked sunlight from the rear of the house. Our clients wanted space to entertain and be able to use the garden as an extension of their living space. Our scheme developed a circular themed garden with an Indian stone patio, and raised deck to provide room to make the most of the gardens orientation. This also focused on the existing covered seat area, and developed more focal points throughout the garden to unify the area and create linked interest points to be viewed from the separate seating spaces.
Edgings were used to link the patio to the rest of the garden, and provide a mowing strip to the lawn, this not only helps to keep the shape of the lawn, but defines the shape of the beds and cuts down on maintenance needs.
Plants were chosen to give colour, texture and interest all year round, and reflected our clients personality and style.
Detail was incorporated to enhance the feel of the garden such as L.E.D lighting to the steps of the decking and coloured pointing for the patio to lift the colour of the paving. As most of our gardens are, this was bespoke, and tailored to our clients individual needs and wants.
