Water Garden

Landscape Design in Shalford

Pond | Split Level Deck

This sloping garden was once a series of ponds and waterways set into a rockery, but time had taken its toll and I was asked to re design, incorporating a bigger pond and some grand steps up to the top of the garden. I decided to build a larger pond above ground and layer the garden, using levels as well as steps. We re-used all the old stone in the garden to fill the Gabion cages, and built three decks and a floating seat using hardwood, which compliments the light coloured stone. There are various planters, one of which houses a water feature above the pond. We added new planting and a sloping pathway to allow mower access from the lower lawn to the upper lawn. Outdoor lighting included lights in the pond and led strips under the floating seat. It was a complex build but with great results.

I was extremely pleased with the work that Ben Swanborough recently did for me. He understood exactly what I wanted, and went to great lengths to make sure I was happy with everything on an ongoing basis. His attention to detail was brilliant! Both he & Piers were a pleasure to have here. They always arrived early, worked a full day, and left everything tidy before they left. I would certainly employ them again, and would happily recommend them.

Ben Swanborough has completed three different garden projects for me over the last ten years. I first saw his work when I visited a friend's garden and was taken aback at how it had been completely transformed. Ben always manages to understand the desired end result and, with his design skills, plant knowledge and creative flair, I have always been delighted with each project. I have no hesitation in recommending him, you'll have been lucky to find him.
