Deck railing's planter- Garden design ideas

This week, at last I had first 2 sales of the extra large version,

But also great if…

Probably not, and it is…

Garden Design Showcase - A garden for entertaining

The objective was to create a garden with space to entertain and enjoy. Existing beds needed retaining and a shed was required. Privacy to the south was important, as was a degree of order and ease of maintenance.

The solution is based around a strong control axis layout, focussing in a circular lawn with water feature, between a generous new patio and secret garden beyond an informed hedge. Here are the practical needs of greenhouse, shed and compost bin.

New oak sleepers…

A team effort

Last November I went to see prospective clients on a site near Cheltenham, and knew straightaway that this project was one that I very much wanted to be involved with. The house was very contemporary, with curved facades and large areas of glass. Inside the style was personal and distinctive, with a large collection of mainly North American art. The big windows gave great views out onto the garden, and the clients were keen to really transform the currently uninspiring garden.…

A Designer At Work: Time Management Techniques

Everybody has their own way of working and I’m no different, but as small business owners we often need to do many different jobs in one day – the types of jobs that larger companies have entire departments for: so there is a need to optimise time and focus on efficiency.

 

I am primarily a designer and I don’t know about you but my brain certainly behaves a little bit like a computer running on low RAM: too many applications running at once and ideas take a long time to load. …

R.E.D Equipment is Must Choice for Any Artificial Surface Maintenance

A programme of routine maintenance is essential to preserving the playing qualities of a synthetic sports surface. A key benefit of artificial turf is its capacity to support usage levels far greater than a natural grass pitch could ever withstand, especially in winter or prolonged rain periods, and regular care and attention is required throughout the life of a synthetic surface to achieve this.…
