Major landscaping + mini refurb combined with upgrades to a detached house in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. The primary piece of work was a new driveway, approximately 95m² in size, and landscaped low maintenance front garden. The driveway featured high quality natural granite blocks and slabs incorporating special permeable, SUDS compliant, joints and bedding with recycled glass.

The landscaping involved building front garden walls from feature, shaped gabions [rock filled cages] which add a decorative effect but also have a practical use, retaining the higher ground on one side. The rocks selected were attractive Cumbrian river washed cobbles. Low maintenance bedding strips and feature timber fencing with bespoke steel posts finished everything off nicely.

The mini-refurb to the main house included new flush sash windows, new doors, new pre-coloured dormer cladding and various other upgrades and alterations to improve accessibility, security, storage, robustness, energy efficiency and moisture ingress.

The finished project is very unusual and unique, it has improved kerbside appeal hugely and is quite literally turning the heads of passers-by. The scheme’s success was down to the hugely collaborative efforts of all the people involved – clients, contractors and sub-contractors – everyone put in useful suggestions that were incorporated to make everything function and look better.

Problems Solved:

Multi-phase construction with different contractors and sloping gabion wall design in conjunction with specialist suppliers
