Christmas Landscaping

For our landscaping project on the run up to Christmas this year, we’re working on a back garden in Filton, North Bristol. It is a long garden, backing onto small but very lovely allotments.

When we arrived a long lawn went through the garden with a concrete path running alongside it. There was a lot of concrete and rubble to remove from the garden, from the patio by the house, the path and a rather old shed/garage. There was asbestos in this building so the boys wore full hazmat suits and masks whilst knocking this down.

Planting along the edge of both sides of the garden had to be removed – there was a lot of ivy and jasmine growing over old fences.

Many trips were made to the recycling centre with this huge pile of rubble!

Once we had started removing old waste, holes were created along the perimeter of both sides of the garden for new concrete fence posts. The new feather edge panels went in with lightning speed by team Jerry.

Once the panels were in the tops of the concrete posts were cut off with a disc cutter so that they were the right height.

A trench was dug for some piping and the decking started being created. This will have soft wood sleeper raised beds on the edge of it with another raised bed further down the garden.

Once the base of the decking was created the concrete pathway was removed. Around this point we had really heavy rain for a day during Storm Barra. This didn’t stop our team of boys, who carried on all day…

Thankfully though the sun shone again and we spent a good day under the winter’s sun building the raised beds.

The raised beds further down the garden gives a good perspective to the area and creates a widening of the garden.

Come back to us before the holidays and see this garden completed!
