Hard Landscaping

Over the years we have undertaken so many wonderful large scale hard landscaping projects and in this section I’m happy to run though what it takes to put a large scale garden renovation together. I personally like to work with plans as when there are measurements, areas and distances all produced from a professional site survey with information collected from professional site surveying.

On large scale works I like to make sure I can provide a ball park figure from a ground work prospective so our clients can have a realistic setting of how much things are going to cost as sometimes it’s just a little too high and it’s a waste of time to presume with further costings. But in most cases we can move on to the next phase that will be getting a full specification on materials and lighting if included or needed in the hard landscaping service.

Hard landscaping provides the base for your ‘soft landscaping‘ (flowers, shrubs, grass, etc). Types of hard landscaping projects that can be carried out by WG Landscapes are:

  • paths
  • driveways
  • patios
  • decking
  • all types of retaining and free-standing walls, including sleeper walls
  • fences
  • water features such as a fountain
  • tiered gardens
  • wooden structures such as pergolas and arches

A wide range of hard landscape materials can be used, such as:

  • brick
  • gravel
  • rock
  • stone
  • concrete
  • timber
  • glass
  • metals


Some examples of our hard landscaping projects

Ask us about the specialist large scale projects and full garden renovations we have undertaken in Berkhamsted and surrounding areas.

We have:

  • installed split level patios of well over 100m2
  • created tiered and split sectioned gardens in the most challenging spaces

With years of experience in hard landscaping, we tend to see the most challenging gardens as the most rewarding to complete. From start to finish, your specialist large scale project will involve the following steps, with continuous consultation with you to ensure you are happy with everything, from the plans and designs to the costs:

  • initial consultation
  • site survey
  • concept and outline plans
  • sketches of proposals
  • full construction drawings
  • planting plans
  • lighting plans
  • project management
  • plant supply, placing and planting

After all aspects have been sanctioned I will submit a fully detailed quote and breakdown of all costings in phases if required and if all is agreed the work can commence. We also offer a full start to finish project management service with our hard landscaping. This way our design team will keep everyone in the loop so no stone is left unturned during the process. A full payment plan will be put in place with staged payments to keep the project funded and a full after care plan if required. So please contact myself Walter Gibbs and take advantage of our free consultations and quotes.
