After: New lawn and refurbished summer house with decking


Our brief was to reinstate the garden back to its former glory and install a new patio level with the interior floor to give a seamless transition from the new extension to outside.


We rebuilt the paved patio area using saved paving slabs, adding new slabs as required, bringing the level up to be flush with the inside and installing a drainage channel at the threshold.

We added  new railway sleeper ‘picture frame’ edges to the lawn before laying a new lawn and new planting. The deck area and arbour were rebuilt and the summer house was painted.
