Our client requested an easy to maintain solution to an overgrown corner of their garden.

The brick weave paths around the house were to be incorporated into the overall scheme and inspiration was to be taken from castle acre priory medieval herb garden. The herb garden had sunken planting areas within brick paving. We also had to make this scheme work with the house and an interesting solution was requested.

A hard core base is covered in a weed suppressing membrane and then a soft sand layer. The edge is cemented into place and then the blocks are laid.

The planting areas are planned out and set in before the brick weave is continued.

The raised sandstone sawn walling bed is build and the bench sits snug in the arms.


Next week the pergola and planting will be completed and I will add the finished garden photos.
