Large Projects

We pride ourselves in undertaking high quality, large scale landscaping projects for both domestic and commercial customers across central Scotland.

Balmaha

This was a new build site, so required extensive groundwork. The patio, terrace and steps were faced using Stile Moda porcelain, while the risers for the steps and the fire pit were built using hand-tooled Caithness stone.

 

A Fagus Purpurea hedge was planted on the boundary line running parallel to the road for screening. Newly turfed lawns were installed throughout the area and a quartz gravel driveway built.

Bearsden

A large part of the process of the design was ensuring the materials chosen were in keeping with key features in the area because the building itself was listed.

With this in mind, a Marshalls granite eclipse slab was used for paving, offering a contemporary feel to accent the house. We sourced bullnose blue brick for the flight of stairs and retaining walls to give the same effect.

 

The flight of stairs incorporated a custom made curved stainless steel handrail, waymarker lighting, and a smooth rendered dividing wall topped with double bullnose brick between the stairs and the driveway.

 

The driveway itself was made from silver granite resin-bound gravel and topped with crushed glass for extra grip. A circle lawn was built, edged with the granite eclipse paving to match the patio area, and turfed.

Kirkintilloch

The area was quite overgrown so, after extensive excavations, we had a blank canvas to work with. The main obstacle in the garden was to create a raised patio, between the back door and the lounge of the house, laid above the damp proof course.

We overcame this using the Macdeck system, which allowed us to lay the slabs on a raised carbon fibre platform. We built resin-bound gravel paths which meandered through the feature trees and around the edges of the flower beds which transitioned into promenade natural Indian sandstone paths passing through Scottish oak pergolas. Boulders dug up during excavations were then re-used to edge the paths and create raised beds. Finally, a sitting arbour was placed at the edge of the longest line of sight, offering a peaceful perspective through which to view the garden.
