Hard Landscaping

Block Paving available from Elstow Landscaping and Gardening services:
Hard landscaping, is everything except for plants and soil and is a fundamental to the design of your garden. Hard landscape materials give a sense of permanence and structure that hold a garden together.

Your garden should be used and enjoyed and needs to be constructed taking into account your needs and wishes within the constraints of a particular site.

A garden is an ‘outside room’ which should be somewhere to sit, to entertain and to play, somewhere which can also be decorated and furnished, to suit your own tastes and needs.
There are many possibilities for developing outside space such as: outdoor lighting, sound systems and heating, living walls and water features are just some recent ideas. More than any room in your house, your garden will allow you to express yourself and to create something special.

The demand for better gardens has allowed Elstow Landscapes to respond with increasingly inventive and unusual structures, and more imaginative use of materials. All of this means that your garden can be a truly welcoming environment that can be moulded to your individual tastes and needs, whether you prefer a minimalist look, a calming space, a Moroccan courtyard, an Italian haven or a wild garden.

Elstow Landscapes can source hard landscaping materials to suit any design of garden. We would welcome the opportunity to discuss your individual requirements during a free consultation.

Lighting

Why not add some soft, warm and welcoming lighting to set the mood on those warm summer evenings.

Well positioned lighting transforms a garden into another world, you just won’t want to go back indoors.

Elstow Landscapes supply and install an endless variety of lighting that will show off your garden in a different light!

You can choose from looks such as chrome, solid brass, carved stone, stainless steel and wood, timed mains lighting or solar powered, and underwater lighting for your koi pond.

Lighting has many uses, not just to light the way but to emphasise detail in your garden, for example if you have a feature tree, a pretty but hidden corner, a special personal collection of roses that you’d love to see at night.

Tree Surgery

Tree surgery is a practice of repairing damaged trees to restore their appearance and to arrest disease.

Injured or diseased parts are first removed, even small cavities in the bark may harbor injurious fungi and insects.

Elstow Landscapes being professional tree surgeons commonly perform many tasks in addition to surgery that are difficult for the individual gardener e.g., large-scale pruning and providing proper support when needed.

As a last resort it is sometimes necessary to actually fell a tree. This can be because of a number of reasons from a tree causing damage to property to the tree actually having damage of some sort. There are a number of different ways in which a tree can be taken down and this would depend on the surrounding environment that would dictate the best method. We can safely remove virtually any tree to ground level. We have years of experience of working with all sorts of trees and sites, including removing very large trees from very restricted sites.

Many trees in residential areas have become the subject of Tree Protection Orders, this is where the local authority has put a designation on a tree to say that it cannot be removed or worked upon without prior consent from the local authority. So long as there are valid reasons for the work being carried out to be done then there is not normally a problem getting this permission from the local authority. This process normally takes a number of weeks although in emergency cases such as dangerous trees it can be applied for and obtained in less than a week.

Ornaments

There is a seemingly endless choice of oranaments for the project, from pots, sundials and figurines, right up to designer sculptures.

At Elstow Landscapes we can source and supply many varieties of garden ornaments that will be pleasing to the eye and give your garden that extra edge.

Its Not Just Plants

Paving and Driveways

A driveway is more than just a place to park a vehicle, it is an important entrance feature for your home or business. With our expertise and a variety of material applications, we can create a driveway that is not only functional, but aesthetic.

When complemented by the right plantings, lighting, and landscape accents, we have the ability to transform your driveway into a unique feature that distinguishes your home. In its’ simplest form a walkway is the shortest route between two points. Geometry and pattern can create a sense of formality. Curved lines, on the other hand, can create a sense of informality, mystery, and blend naturally into the landscape.

The addition of steps, landings, and site furnishings can further transform a simple path into a stylish complement to your property. Patios are structural features that, as extensions of your home, create multifunctional spaces for outdoor living.
Designed to accommodate your needs, a patio can increase the enjoyment of your garden throughout the year. Starting with a solid foundation, our patios are built to exacting standards, with an attention to detail.

Turfing

There’s nothing like a lawn to bring the various disparate elements in a project together. It’s easy on the eye and helps highlight other more ornamental features within in the garden. Best of all, it adds much needed space to the garden and provides evergreen continuity too, but a lawn shouldn’t be viewed as a growing carpet that looks after itself. Think of it as thousands of tiny plants crammed together that need to be cared for like other plants, even though they are not quite as demanding. The great thing about a lawn is that anybody can grow one successfully regardless of their experience or love of gardening. A lawn is easy to look after and continues to look good if it’s not abused too much

Do you really want a lawn?
The first thing to consider when covering the floor area of a garden is what finish suits you and your project best. Although a lawn is the traditional ‘material’, it requires looking after and is less suitable in certain circumstances, especially tiny, restricted areas, dense shade, hot dry spots and on steep slopes where it’s difficult to maintain. In these situations, groundcover plants, landscaping materials or even wildflowers might be a better option.

Artificial Grass?
Low maintenance, pet friendly, no weeding, looks natural, no bald spots, long lasting.
Artificial grass has come a long way from its early days of school football fields. We can install a very natural looking lawn for those who want not hassle gardens, areas with high shade and show homes or office spaces.
Lay it in opposing directions and instant stripped lawn.

Decking

There are so many plus points to having decking, a great one is that it is installed to the height of your house floors, so not only is there no step down, from the inside it can make your rooms feel more spacious.

Installing decking can make great use of a dull corner of your garden, ideal for eating or entertaining on or just simply soaking up the sun.
