Site name:

Bar Road

Start date:

Completion date:

November 2016

Various issues existed with this site but the main concern for the client was the boundary retaining wall, which dominated the garden.

We came up with the idea, in light of the properties position, of using faux beach huts to break up the length and height of the wall and to add a bit of fun!!

These were manufactured at a local sawmill and delivered ready for erection. Low maintenance was incredibly important due to the client’s end users, being predominantly retired. It was decided therefore, that synthetic turf was the way ahead and it achieved very dramatic results.Similarly, composite decking was used to extend the life expectancy of the decking areas.

All the beds were membraned and mulched with local river cobbles of varying sizes.


From first sketch to final bloom, YGS Landscapes have planned, designed, installed
