Landscaping Project With Water Feature Aigburth

After 27 Days
Date Completed: 27/01/2016

This landscaping project was carried out at Aigburth area of Liverpool, commenced in December 2015 and completed in February 2016.

In this garden makeover project we were transforming the whole rear garden, creating a new patio area, retaining wall, cedar seat and planters including cedar decking and contemporary water feature.

Here we transformed the whole garden which was approx. 400m2 area into a luxury usable space. We started by removing all the trees that blocked the light. Then we created a new contemporary screen timber fence all around the garden. This is a split level garden with two levels, with the upper level being 1.2m higher than the lower level. Before we transformed the garden, the levels were separated by existing old decking that had rotted. We separated the garden levels by creating retaining wall using concrete block with paving stuck to the block to give a tile effect contemporary finish.

The lower level area was transformed by using Marshalls symphony vitrified paving rustic colour for the main patio area and path leading to corner feature steps and garden gate. We also used cedar timber decking to create a large step with path around the large conservatory leading to cedar steps to give access to the upper level garden the opposite end to the paved steps. In the main patio we also installed a manhole and paved steps in front of the doors of the smaller conservatory.

The paved and timber steps both lead to the upper level garden, with the paved steps being a corner step design and the cedar timber steps being standard with a timber spindle design.

The paved corner steps lead to a curved path that we constructed using Marshalls Vitrified paving and the path leads to the other end of the garden through the centre at the lawn. At the other end of the garden we constructed a raised cedar decking feature around the existing garden building. We installed a contemporary glass balustrade – handrail around the edge of the deck near the conservatory side of the deck. In the middle of the path we constructed a contemporary water feature with three waterfalls and a small patio around it. The rest of the upper garden consists of a new lawn with planting in a border around perimeter fence screen. The planting will be carried out at a later date.

The whole garden has contemporary lighting installed on remote control, with contemporary wall lights, spike lights and brick lights.

What Our Customers Say

“Absolutely fantastic! We needed a way to stop water running underneath a poorly designed automatic door threshold into our Property. Abel Landscapes came up for a site-visit and advised on the best, affordable and wheelchair friendly drainage channel, making sure the water runs off down the street rather than into our building. A time amd date convenient to us was agreed. When the workmen came I was very impressed to witness a throrough and professional pre-job brief -all too often have I had it happen that after everything was agreed on site-visit, then the workmen turn up and ask “so what needs doing here?” not having been briefed about the job at all- not so with Abel Landscapes: they were briefed not only with everything that was agreed on during site visit but also the technical aspects and details of execution of the job. It was a joy to hear a proper job brief. Then the work itself was carried out swiftly and extraordinarily neatly. The finished job looks so good and un-intrusive I had to point out to staff that it’s already been done and they were impressed how well it fitted with the look of the front of our building. Most importantly though: it works! The drainage channel keeps the water away from our building and we can finally replace the sodden moss-ridden carpet. Thank you Abel Landscapes! 5 stars all round from communication over design to execution -oh, and reasonable price – I cannot recommend them enough! I would use them again in a heartbeat.”
