We have been transforming gardens and building for over 20years. With that in mind, we have returned to several gardens many times so they have a story to tell.
This is one of those stories!
In August 2012 we visited this garden and found this.
Our solution was to raise the wet garden with timber purlins and import 94 tons of soil and returf- basic and economical for this rental property.
Last year a representative of Haizhu asked me to meet him at this memorable address.
Haizhu had bought the property as a U.K. Holiday home and wanted someone to transform the garden. A key issue was to lower the levels (600mm) he was amazed when I advised 94tons plus would need to be taken out without even getting my tape measure out.
We agreed phase 1 reduce the levels, phase two replace the fencing, stage three simple paving with minimal cuts, a morning exercise area, feng shui theme.
Because of the language barriers we worked through interpreters and negotiated each phase as we progressed.
Please see my following feedback. Because of my poor English, you can revise it as you wanted.
We are a foreigner family and enjoy the English countryside life very much. To have a traditional English garden is our dream. The initial garden was very unsatisfactory, especially the raised part makes the garden looks very small, narrow and disorganized. We were lucky to meet our garden designer, Mr Mark
Hinkley and his team. They turned our dream into reality!
