Gardens & Landscaping – New Patio
New Patio & Garden Make-Over, Streatham, South West London
We had worked with this client in the past, designing and constructing their original garden and patio some years ago. Recently a full width extension to the rear of the house was built as part of a major renovation. The garden was sacrificed to carry out these works. The old patio was removed and the building works took over the entire garden space. ‘Before’ pictures (below) show the state of the garden and patio, the starting point for this project.
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.
