Think Ahead to Summer

Last year we added a lot of delighted customers to our ever-growing list.

January has been quiet as usual as we all recover from Christmas, but enquiries will come in thick and fast now with Spring on the way. If you need a garden design and / or landscaping work done and you want to ensure your project goes ahead this season, I would strongly advise that you don't delay.

Although the weather is still pretty awful there are quite a few things that can be done now. For example, general tidying, fencing, new gravel gardens, decking and so on.

When it comes to laying bricks and paving, or anything involving cement of course one has to watch out for frost, but covering fresh work with bubble wrap or some similar protective sheet will prevent any problems arising. Actually laying bricks or pointing slab-work is more or less impossible if it is actually raining, so we try to wait for better weather for these jobs. But last year it was surprising how much we got done in March and April by dodging the showers and covering-up, so quite a number of clients had new patios and paths up and running well before summer.

We already have a few bookings for February and March, so make a start now and give us a call so we can get the planning stage started. Initial consultations and quotes are free of charge so you don't have to commit to anything for a while anyway. Major garden projects can take some time to plan, design and put into practice. So why not get in before the rush.

Apart from the “arty” side to a design there is often a requirement for a degree of structural design where features such as decking, retaining walls, ponds etc are involved. Unusual or special materials and features such as sculptures and fountains may have to be sourced and priced for the quotation. Specialist services may need to be contacted for additional quotations. There may even be local authority planning issues to deal with, if for example your property is a listed building, or in relation to front gardens and the new legislation on flood prevention. Don’t be fooled by the rate of progress presented on TV by the likes of “Ground Force”. You’ll also need time to think about the design and cost and discuss any modifications with the designer. Typically it takes about 15 weeks from the first telephone call to completion of the project.
