Our recent work in Lower Earley / Reading involved some landscaping.
Plans were arranged with the owners who basically wanted two areas. One for kids to have their swings, slides, trampoline etc... and the other in grass. Two flower beds have also been included which have not been planted yet.
We had to plan and work around previously constructed areas like patio and pathways.. We only made one change to these which was the
extension of steps leading to the lawn. It was just two slabs before. We have rebuilt steps so that they stretch from side to side, whole length of patio.
Originally garden was just a plain, uneven, un-level tired patch of grass.
Ground consisted of very heavy clay which we have improved by incorporating a good amount of compost and mixing up clay and compost together.
It should give grass and other plants a very good base to grow on.
I hope you agree that we have turned it into something more interesting. Given some plants this garden could look amazing..
Garden's been sectioned off using railways sleepers.
Have a look at some photos taken at different stages of this project.
Any comments are welcomed.
