2012 – Happy New Garden!

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Happy New Year to you all from Gardenproud.

There’s nothing quite like a beautiful garden in full bloom to lift the spirits!

And as we all sit watching The News at Ten and listen to the threat of a double-dip recession we all need something to hang onto.

Well for just £250, plus the dreaded VAT( I’m sorry according to George Osborne this isn’t likely to be coming down yet) we can make you feel better and hopefully inspire you onto greater things!

That’s all it costs for Gardenproud to provide a series of concepts demonstrating how you can transform your garden. It maybe that you just want a fresh look at your planting, or a new terrace designed, or a vegetable garden, or the kids are getting bigger and you need to re-think the front driveway, or maybe you’ve bucked the trend and just moved into a new house and the whole garden needs a re-think. Whatever your desires we have the experience and expertise to help you realise your dream.

Don’t leave it till the tulips come out, call us now and be sure to have a much improved view by the Spring.

A garden to harmonise with a contemporary house transformation

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Challenge

The Client was undertaking a major refurbishment of their house, transforming it from a rather ordinary looking 1960′s property into a contemporary structure reminiscent of North American cedar clad buildings.

The garden was suffering from collateral damage from the building works and this needed remedying.

The Client also wished to create new pathways, a much enhanced pond and water feature, and wanted the terraces refurbished.

Gardenproud were required to dovetail their works schedule with all the contractors on site.

Solution

Gardenproud designed a series of pathways and beds that improved the presentation and access around the house.

They also designed a new waterfall feature, plus sandstone surround that helped transform this area into a subtropical terrace thus integrating with the building design.

New centralised steps were incorporated, dramatising the view of the terraces from the garden and improving access.

The upper terrace was cleaned, completely relayed, re-styled and re-pointed to work with new door and window openings.

An area to the side of the house was enhanced with further timber steps, driftwood, rocks and tropical plants.

Finally the lawns were re-turfed and fertilised in areas where they had received heavy damage.

All the works were completed on schedule and project managed by Gardenproud to cause least disruption to the Client, their labrador Nelson and other contractors.

Will 2011 be the year to invest in your garden?

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Well if 2010 was anything to go by the answer is yes.

Whilst house prices remained depressed in 2010 latest trends point towards improving access to mortgages and loans, particularly for home owners with or buying properties valued in excess of £500,000.

This could help stimulate sales at the top end of the market.

Apart from the enjoyment you can gain from a beautiful garden, a nicely designed and maintained one can help create a great first impression to potential buyers.  And research consistently shows that house price values or the marketability of a property can be increased significantly when you have an attractive garden.

If you are contemplating a project for 2011 then talk to us first, and from as little as £500 we can help you develop design concepts from which a project can be progressed.

We also have ground working teams who can carry out any hard landscaping and plants men on tap who can help with the soft landscaping.

Whether it’s a new space for the barbecue, a patio, a decking area, a water feature or a children’s play area you are looking for, or a complete garden re-design, call Tim Sykes on 07725 173820, or contact us at info@reallygardenproud.com
