Today we started hard landscaping in Newquay, it’s actually a project in the village of Crantock. There’s lot’s to do on this project, including the installation of limestone paving that will wrap around the house. A new flight of granite steps will lead up to the main entrance door.
A customer in Truro asked us to replace their Bath stone columns at the main entrance to their town house… Bath stone is actually a limestone and there’s a few open cast limestone quarries up in and around Bath.
Our hard landscaping landscaping project at Sennen in Cornwall has come to an end, and it’s looking awesome… This landscaping project was extremely challenging due to the access restrictions and the very nature of the work. We installed limestone paving around the swimming pool on a bed of flexible adhesive with latex additive.
We are now installing the slate paving around the house. We have five slate patios and two slate paths to install. First we reduce excavate the necessary areas before bringing in the hardcore.
Finally the wooden gates arrive and the site can be made more secure with easy access. But first the Limestone gate posts must be prepared for the intercom system and cabling. The gates are lifted into position using a hiab on the delivery lorry.
Currently we are carrying out landscaping works down at Sennen in Cornwall, right at the top of the cliff over looking Sennen Cove.
Our landscaping work takes us all over Cornwall & Devon but today we are in Bath. Managing the tarmac contractors on site. For more information ring us on 01726 814466 or pop into our showroom in Par near St Austell in Cornwall.
A garden pond was worked into the design on this project, right next to the swimming pool. We excavated the pond using a swing shovel but due to the shape of the pond, there was a lot of hand digging.
We’re at that stage of the project, time to set out & install the Tegular block paving kerbs. As you can see from the photo’s, before we start installing the kerbs, we install steel pins close to the line of kerbs.
We carry out all types of hard landscaping works throughout Cornwall. And we’ve been working on the composite decking on this project, finally finished! It’s all about setting up correctly from the very start, and on this decking installation we had a few features to deal with, including a swimming pool, pond and bridge.
