Fencing, Gates & Outbuildings
The garden outbuilding required complete refurbishement. By using Waney Edge Douglas Fir boards the structure retains the original rustic appearance. Some of the structural timbers were replaced with tanalised and pressure treated timber.
The feather edge gate was built, as no "off the shelf" gate would fit the space.
The five bar gate is one of many projects undertaken at this home.
The stock fence became buried in the undergrowth after the supports had rotten away. New supports were installed, the existing wire fence cleaned and reused and the garden is now dog proofed.
Rebuild of Stone Wall
I was commissioned to rebuild a 20ft section of stone wall in Wiltshire. The wall had collapsed to ground level on the clients side and the remaining section of wall was unstable on the neighbouring side. I was also commissioned to remove ivy that had engulfed the neighbouring property, even growing through window frames in to the bedrooms.
The garden was completely overgrown and in need of a complete overhaul. Garden buildings were re-sited, 15 tons of soil were moved by hand to create a large open lawn. Mature shrubs and plants were re-sited and a vegetable patch created. Childrens stilted playhouse was built and painted.
