Matthew’s Winter Makeover

A bit about Matthew…

Matthew May joined Ed’s Garden Services in March 2012 to be an Ed’s Operator in the Folkestone and Canterbury areas.

Garden work is never truly done and Matthew always keeps himself busy in the Winter months. The following garden makeover is an example of ways he keeps active all year round as he completed this job before Spring had sprung earlier this year.

Matthew tells us more about the work involved with this garden makeover…

“As you can see from the pictures shown below, the house was very new and only had a small patio. My customer asked for a larger patio area to enjoy in the Summer for BBQ’s and entertaining friends.”

“Firstly, we lifted the existing patio and path and used these slabs to create a new shed base.”

“We then fixed the issue of water running in the direction of the house due to the garden sloping. To do this, we dug out the new patio area so it tilted away from the house and used this soil to flatten the upper level of the garden.”

“We top soiled and turfed the top level of the garden. Then we laid down grey Indian Sandstone for the new patio and path. Lastly, we built a wall with sleepers and installed drains to tackle the problem of surface water.”

“I am very happy with the outcome of this garden makeover and so is my customer.”

Garden Makeover

Ed’s Garden Maintenance Operator Matthew May who covers the Folkestone and Canterbury area was recentlly asked to give a local garden a modern makeover.  Matthew decided to use Indian Sandstone, replace the existing lawn and move some plants.

The Front Garden
Matthew took up the old patio and flower beds, laid a concrete base and created a stone circle.  The existing wall was taken down and replaced.

The Back Garden
The old patio was removed with a new base layer and slaps added.  The borders were redone with a base and brick edge added around the turf.  The turf was re-layed and shrubs relocated.

 

The customer was delighted and said she was more than happy for potential customers to see the end result.  If you are interested in having a new lawn ready for the spring/summer why not contact us for a free estimate.
