Gravel gardens are an ideal way of having a low maintenance garden, it provides an ideal area for drought tolerant planting and is relatively cheap to design. You may even require the gravel garden for off road parking/driveways but wish to keep a level of beauty at the same time with flowers and border plants.
Costs: - Gravel and membrane to suppress the weeds is inexpensive so it is better to spend a little extra on the plants and garden sculptures (if any) these will add more interest to the gravel garden.
Maintenance: - Less watering and weeding is required because of the gravel mulch and membrane.
We will prepare a landscaping design for the gravel garden (if required) a specification and a cost schedule before implementing any work, we understand you want little disruption as possible.

please take 5 mins to read this as this is the best testimonial we've ever had !!
We'd like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the work carried out on our garden.
The work that has been done is to the highest standard and faultless. Throughout the work being done even through the weather effected days the friendliness and professionalism shown by your team is a credit to you and your company name. The exact finish article to how we wanted this to look in our heads is astounding and the fact the shared surrounding areas outside of the garden are untouched during and now the work is finished shows true commitment and care.
As you know the real reason this work was required is to give our little boy the chance to play where he didn't have anything before that was safe enough. Not only have you provided this you've changed his life and for this we cant thank you enough.
Please pass on our thanks to your lads and we will sure to recommend you and your company to anyone that ever comments or asks us about it.
