It might be siesta time for much of garden life, but early January is a great time of year to be thinking about garden landscaping. We’ve been working this week on designing a really lovely elliptical shape for a paving area in a client’s back garden. Time to bring out the angle-grinder! It’s oh so easy to have a perfect rectangular shaped paving area, so we were delighted to be given the brief to come up with something a little different. Having also managed to procure some wonderful warm honey toned sandstone @ £25 per square metre (York paving at £75 per square metre, move over) – for a mere few hundred pounds we are, this week, putting the finishing touches on a fab new landscaped area for our client. All that’s needed is some complimentary coloured wooden furniture, a large glass of G&T and a bird feeding station, then it’s time to sit back and enjoy the beauty of late winter, watching the buds of those first early woodland spring plants soon appear.
