Semi Circular Lawn with Planted Borders

The owners of the house had moved in eighteen months ago and were desperate to alter their front garden.

A large Hornbeam had been removed about a year ago, which had previously shaded out the lawn, so it was very patchy and worn out.

To brighten up the space they had added some colourful Hellebores and bulbs, but this border needed some structure. The gravel area had merged with the lawn and looked generally unkempt.

We scalped the lawn and removed some Portuguese Laurel and began landscaping the area for the new design.

A semi circular trench was dug to create a concrete footing for the Raj Green edging stones. These were laid whilst we continued levelling out the ground around it.

As the garden was sloping in different directions we worked hard to create the right levels for the new lawn and borders. Once the edging was in place it was pointed, whilst we further prepared the soil for the base for the lawn.

Once the rolls of turf started going down, the garden started coming into its own. We craned in three bulk bags of bark mulch over the hedge, which was a good time saver. Mulch is the ultimate conclusion to any garden, it retains moisture in the soil and suppresses weeds.
