Terracing and Paving Project - Dunning

This stunning project took place in the large garden of a new build steading development in the small country town of Dunning.

Consultation and Concept

The garden was a good sized blank canvas with a steep banked area to the rear. 

The client wanted a garden with areas to grow plants, fruits and vegetables. An attractive seating and entertaining space in keeping with the property was also a requirement.

The client asked for a potting shed and garden lighting to be included within the design and as part of a project-managed package. 

A design drawing was produced to effectively use all of the available space and several different materials were considered for the paving and patio areas.

Garden Features

Our design incorporated:-

  • Walls constructed from wooden sleepers erected along banking to form terraced planters.
  • Three matching sets of steps constructed for ease of access to the different levels.
  • Smooth Casarta light grey slate chosen for paths and patio to complement the style of the property.
  • A smaller raised bed constructed from sleepers on side boundary.
  • Fresh turf laid to form central lawn.

Completed Project

This blank canvas with rear banking was transformed into a garden with real impact and plenty of style.

The vast terraced planters provide the perfect space in which to grow a variety of plants and produce.

Modern Casarta slate in light grey with smooth finish gives a contemporary feel to the paved areas of this modern country garden. 

A potting shed and the garden lighting chosen by the client were essential components of the finished space and were incorporated within the complete project-managed package the client desired. 

In the words of the client several months after completion, "I remain delighted by the reaction of every one who see it - it clearly has real wow-factor and is such a pleasure to spend time in as well as look out at every day."


Client Testimonial

“This is one of these occasions where it's hard to find the right words. I was excited about the garden but also a bit nervous because it was such a huge investment for us. I am one extremely happy customer. All the guys who worked here were a pleasure to deal with. They worked hard in challenging weather and I gather that because of the ground conditions, it all turned out to be a lot more difficult to do than originally anticipated. The end result is more fabulous than I could have imagined so a huge thank you to all the team. They've done a brilliant job on the garden, but also in representing the company; all the neighbours are impressed with the consideration shown, the care and tidiness of how the work was done, and the finished product.”
