Paul completed a major overhaul of the patio and garden area on the seaward side of our home. Our thoughts had been to bulldoze the area and start afresh, but with restricted access the use of heavy machinery was not an option. On the initial consultation, having noted our concerns, Paul convinced us to retain the existing pond and adjacent structural features, and to only realign and modernize the paved area, and replant the surrounding gardens. We are extremely pleased with the result and now get much pleasure from our garden his vision, meticulous planning, and attention to detail has transformed an average garden into a stunning oasis.
