This was one of our favourite projects, a small front garden in Leighton Buzzard. Our customer had a clear vision in mind of what they wanted, with the main aim to increase their curb appeal and add some value to their property!
The first thing to do involved stripping out all of the existing weeds and plastic membrane and clearing the site in preparation for the slabs and the brand new turf! This didn’t take long and before we knew it, we were into phase 2.
The next step was to install the picket fence out the front with a small garden gate. This not only helped with adding value but also made it the perfect enclosed area for small children or animals, as the house was near a main road.
After the space was clear and the fence was finished we began laying the slabs leading up to the front door. We recommended the cotswold stone base, a light and clean looking stone that would really contrast against the green lawn. The slabs were laid and the bespoke sized raised beds were built and filled with topsoil.
We were soon on to the new lawn and immediately as we began laying the new high grade turf, the garden began to take shape. There is something quite satisfying about nice green turf!
The finished photo shows a much nicer looking, more functional front garden that helped raise the curb appeal. Mission accomplished!
