NATURAL STONE WALLS / RETAINERS
I have found in my garden designs and renovations over the years, that there is something majestic, and stunning about a natural semi dry stone wall, where the stone mason craftsman can create a low wall ,stone faced wall, or bespoke sculpture that will reflect back the simplicity yet most pleasing of texture and presence that will complete any space.

“Simply said natural stone looks good no matter what setting, focal point, renovating a tired garden it is placed in” it crossed all style lines. I find that natural stone creates a reflective quality in any home, it can also be designed to be functional or have a sculptural quality to the finish We work with a number of quality stones from around the country different colours and finish, depending on what is the best to complement your designs.

CONRETE BLOCK WALLS
Concrete walls are another way of giving a contemporary finish and a clean finish.
Blocks give you great flexibility in creating divisions, sloped spaces, or bespoke features.
They can be plastered and then finished with paint, or with a permanent rendering finish.
I have found that plastering existing walls, even though it might cost more is worth it in the long run in terms of the quality of finish. This can scare people off, all new renovations have a lot of glazing nowadays and, I think if you are doing feature walls you should plaster all visible lines.

New cut railway sleepers are also another attractive way to build retaining beds, this works well in small spaces, or where you are isolating an area as part of the overall experience.
