|Doing up the Front - 2003
Click any picture to enlarge.
|Having got the back garden looking almost as we wanted it, though it's always going to be a work in progress, we've started on the front. But this time it was a case of getting in the professionals.|
|This was the starting point. The tree had grown too large and the whole thing looked scruffy||The crazy paving had to go, as did the 60's style wall||So the man with the digger arrived and pretty soon neither were to be seen|
|Once leveled, it was time for the construction to begin. Start with a strengthening matting||And a heavy compactor (which you can see parked on the neighbour's drive)||The walls were rebuilt in reclaimed brick, sympathetic to the original house-bricks|
|We are keeping a little bit of garden so that we can 'green' it up a bit later||We went to work one day and, when we got home, the paving was virtually complete||The house originally had a front gate as well as a drive, so that was included in the plans|
