This typical 1950’s chalet bungalow was very non descriptive with just a front garden covered in tarmac. The tarmac was replaced with a marshalls tegular concrete block in three different sizes and a mixture of light to mid-dark colours. The random stretcher bond pattern creates a smart traditional appearance. This overall effect was highlighted with a single contrast with a dark grey perimeter band.
The project required new boundary fencing on 3 sides. This was created by building decorative brick pillars with an infill of close board fencing. The fencing was boarded on both sides to give a first class finish from all angles. The brick pillars were built using a quality brick and were high enough to allow decorative lights to give a subtle glow. By using the brick pillars, posts and decorative fence panels, the fence will have a longer life span.
Against the house, in front of the bay window, a medium sized flower bed was created. This was planted with Buxus Balls (Evergreen). Between each of the balls, an uplighter was placed to highlight the foliage and create a reflective glow on the wall. The total soil area of the flower bed was covered with a weed block membrane under a decorative black basalt gravel. This completed a very smart front garden for the bungalow.
