Retaining Sleeper Wall With Block Paving


A lovely small job completed before Christmas.

A sleeper retaining wall with seat, all waterproofed behind to protect the timber.

Brett Alpha Antique blocks were used to blend in with existing paving.

It tidied up the back of the garden, while creating a usable space for sitting out.


Tennis Court Path

Indian sandstone paving edges this tennis court, with autumnal colours.  The sleepers created the space for the path by keeping the soil back.IMAG0073.jpg

Having taken 14 grab lorries of spoil from this garden, the footings are being completed for the retaining walls and steps.

Tumbled sandstone walling will be used to face up the concrete block walls.

‘It’s the most Muckiest time, of the year’!

Dredging a moat at this time of year was never going to be a tidy job, but we got there in the end.

An 8 ton digger and a 6 ton dumper kept the boys spirits up though!

* A merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all!*


Walled Vegetable Garden Near Abingdon

This walled garden near Abingdon was designed to keep local badgers out.  The chainlink fencing drops down into the ground, along with concrete slabs 450mm beneath.Appleton 1 Appleton 2

The bricks will compliment the new house which is to be built, being Coleford Cotswold Buff.

The ground was an old orchard, so the soil was of a high quality.
