CASE STUDIES

Alderley Edge Site - November 2012

This was an extremely challenging job to undertake, the client wanted a level lawn from left to right across the garden, but the site had a cross fall from one side to the other of about 900 mm.

This meant building a retaining wall down one side of the garden to retain the earth, but as the lower part of the garden was a boggy marsh area, a concrete pad had to be constructed on 14 piles to ensure the foundations were stable enough to hold the wall.

The wall was constructed from pool blocks which had steel running through them which was tied into the footings, then filled with concrete.

The site was the built up to the desired level and this involved importing 900 + ton of spoil, and land drains were installed, a grade A festival turf was laid on a screen of 70:30 root-zone.

The hard standing on the site was constructed from Silver grey Indian Stone and was edged with a granite set,

A tiered hedgerow was planted down either side of the garden to create interest and depth and a garden room was installed at the rear of the garden courtesy of www.gardenaffairs.co.uk
