This was a high-specification garden refurbishment in Radlett, Hertfordshire. The client wanted a beautiful and sohisticated low-moderate maintenance outdoor space for entertaining friends and family, which they required to be finished in time for a summer party. The project start date was delayed almost 3 months due to appalling weather.
The design includes two terraces, an upper terrace looking out onto surrounding farmland and a lower terrace beside the house. The lower terrace is designed for al-fresco eating, entertaining and relaxing by the swimming pool. Planting is very neat and precise with topiary hedges and box balls. Bright white porcelain paving invokes a holiday atmosphere.
The upper terrace houses a more intimate seating area with gas fire pit. Planting is more relaxed and informal and paths use the same porcelain paving as the lower terrace. A beautifully maintained formal lawn is ideal for impromtu ball games, sunbathing and picnics.
Harrowden Turf took great pains to ensure that every roll of the 110m2 turf delivery was as good as it could be.
All credit must go to the team of landscapers who prepared the soil and laid the turf to a very high standard. They also had the job of keeping the newly laid lawn healthy during the heatwave.
Work was finished on time and on budget, much to the delight of the client and Landscape Consultant.
Richard Bickler of Arbour Landscape Solutions has worked with Harrowden Turf before. "As usual, I'm more than happy with the turf and the service from Harrowden Turf. Communication was excellent, and just as importantly, the price was right too."
