Clients brief to construct a large formal garden with a good selection of features and to include all planting.
In this project we constructed a large concrete formal pond, we used stone ballast railing to enclose existing patio and matching copping around pond. We then constructed cobble paths around entire garden and laid turf. A summer house area was created with storage overhead.
For the fence line we used mature Portuguese laurel to create an evergreen instant hedge, with trellis fence used with evergreen climbers in areas with restricted space. We then used a mix of other plants to clients taste.

Expectation Landscapes is based in Haywards Heath covering Lindfield and Cuckfield and completing projects across Sussex and in London locations. A number of our projects involve the design and construction of ponds and there are some others included in our portfolio.
I started the renovation of this garden by removing all existing walls and old foundations. I then replaced all foundations and added a new foundation to around the pond area to allow for pond to be raised in height for greater effect. I then built all walls using second hand York stone walling which was then weather painted.
