Ongoing projects

Garden refurbishment in Cheddleton

After previously landscaping a lot of the garden the client decided it was time the patio was updated from the tired old paving. So we designed and laid the new paving out of large Indian stone, with even more room for planting.

Small Garden Transformation, Biddulph, Staffordshire

The clients recently moved into the house but the garden had been neglected for some time. They had no idea what, if anything, could be done with a small space...

Garden Design and Construction, Astbury, Cheshire

The client was sick of how featureless and boring the back garden looked. But wasn’t sure what to do with it but definitely wanted something interesting done to the large bank side. Including a water feature. And wanted a contemporary look.

Garden Re-construction, Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent

The clients garden backs onto the river trent. Unfortunately the bank side was looking a bit scruffy and access was getting difficult. So the solution was to build up some terracing using inverted sleepers to get some nice curves. Gentle steps were then added to make the access easier. The idea is to slowly progress along the bank side.

Pond and Patio, Packmoor Stoke-on-Trent

The client had an old pond and waterfall that leaked, surrounded with vey old and tired paving. As they loved sitting watching their fish, they really felt it badly needed renovating. So with not going away because of the Coronavirus epidemic, they wanted to spend the money making the pond area a nice place to enjoy for summer.

Patio and Gazebo Seighford, Stafford

The client wanted to move his hot tub next to his shed but the existing decking was too weak to take the weight. He also wanted it covered with a gazebo for all weather use. The client wanted Indian stone to match existing pathways, so we laid the patio with Raj Green Indian stone. We then erected a gazebo over it ready house the hot tub.

Small front entrance refurbishment, Congleton

The client felt the front of her house was looking a bit tired. Not much ever grew well due to shady north facing aspect, so we cleaned out the old bed and added fresh soil and rocks. We then planted up with shade loving plants. For a dramatic look we added three tree ferns and under planted with evergreen ferns for all year round interest.

Small border refurbishment, Congleton Cheshire

The client was tired of how untidy the old herbaceous border was looking, so they wanted a complete change with the idea of it looking good all year round. The old plants were completely removed and soil cleaned out of roots and bulbs, and the border was replanted with evergreen shrubs to give all year round interest. The border was finished off with a metal lawn edging.

Pond and Stream Refurbishment in Wolstanton, Staffordshire

The client thought that the existing pond and stream needed a bit of a lift. They wanted one of the ponds made bigger and the stream made wider.

Large Garden Design and Construction in Congleton

The client was in desperate need to get the garden landscaped. They wanted a large sitting out, entertaining area where they can make the most of the sun...

Pond Refurbishment Newcastle under Lyme

This client's pond was looking a bit scruffy, so a refurbishment was in order. The client wanted a brand new look for their new pond, so the old pond was cleaned and stripped out.

Water Feature Installation in Knypersley

The client wanted a rockery with a cascading waterfall, but without a pond so that he could enjoy the sound of water falling in the garden.

Garden Design and Construction in Alsager

The client wanted a small sitting area outside the door with the main patio in the top corner to catch the evening sun and the garden to entertain their family with seating area and space for the grandchildren.

Pond Refurbishment in Stockton Brook

At this property, the pond was getting overgrown, so the shrubs were thinned out and covered with pebbles to make maintenance easier. 

Border Design in Newcastle-under-Lyme

This area was previously covered with the branches of the tree and scrub underneath. Gardencare had the tree crown lifted, we imported a few ton of soil and large rocks to create a rockery. We planted the border with tree ferns and a mixture of small ferns suitable for dry shade.

Border Re-design in Newcastle-under-Lyme

The client at the property had an unused grass bank which needed some life. We suggested creating a rockery using large rocks to hold the bank up, and a range of plants which will fill the border in the months to come.

Full Garden Re-design in Biddulph

On this property, the garden was sloping and had a pond. However, this was becoming impractical with a toddler running about, and the owners couldn't relax and let her play without concern that she would fall. The garden was therefore fully re-designed to be made safe by getting rid of the pond and creating level areas so that she can play...

Garden Transformation in Alsager

This client wanted a large patio designed for alfresco living. This project included laying an Indian Stone patio for their outdoor furniture to occupy, and building a raised bed including Mediterranean plants to remind them of their holidays abroad. We also planted a Portuguese Laurel hedge which, when fully established, will be the perfect spot to keep unsightly bins.

Small Garden Refurbishment in Cheddleton

There was a section of this client's garden which previously had no plants due to being quite shady. We planted this section with tree ferns, small ferns for the shadiest parts and specimen acres, and the area was finished off with large pebbles for a contemporary look and to keep weeds at bay.

Waterfall and Stream Refurbishment in Newcastle-under-Lyme

Waterfall and stream refurbishment

Waterfall Refurbishment in Congleton

The customer wanted her water feature and waterfall improved. We worked on re-designing the surrounding rockery and planted up the rockery so that it was full of colour all year round.

Installation of Pond and Waterfall in Biddulph

This project was the installation of a pond and waterfall. We used a high quality pump, filter and lining and built up a rockery feature around to pond, including a variety of plants which will keep the pond looking attractive all year round.

Garden Design and Construction in Biddulph, Staffordshire

The client needed their garden re-designing to a contemporary style to suit the property, after a garage had been removed. They wanted a large patio for Alfresco dining and a tropical theme for the planting. This was achieved with an Indian Stone patio, installation of a raised bed, and grey slate was laid over a membrane to eliminate weeds and make the garden low-maintenance. 

Re-design of Property Entrance in Newcastle-under-Lyme

The client at this property felt that the front of the house looked unkempt, so Gardencare came in to tidy up the land. We cleared out all of the old shrubs, and tidied up the trees. We put down a new, healthy lawn and placed some decorative boulders to make the space look more spacious and tidy.

Pond Refurbishment in Bemersley

This was a pond installation originally completed by Gardencare quite a few years back. Over the years the planting had overgrown and was looking cluttered. The rockery was cleared out to leave minimal planting. The waterfall was rebuilt and then covered with pebbles to give it a contemporary look.

Waterfall Refurbishment in Biddulph Moor

On this project, the waterfall's surroundings needed revamping to make it more appealing. We designed a rockery and used a variety of plants which will continue to fill the beds over the months to come and make the waterfall an attractive feature all year round.

Refurb of Steep Garden in Little Chell

This project involved transforming a very steep garden which was overgrown and unusable. 40 ton of material was removed in order to install terraced levels using sleepers. We installed two large borders and a level lawn in the middle. The client now finds this garden more easier to use, and will be including plants in the borders over the months and years to come.

Dividing Border Re-design in Biddulph

This was a project completed for 2 neighbours, who were looking to improve the look of the border between their properties. They felt that it was scruffy-looking and needed re-designing to smarten it up, so we carried out a small refurbishment on the patch...

Pond Refurbishment in Cobridge, Stoke-on-Trent

The client already had a plastic pond and waterfall in the base of an old greenhouse but wanted a larger, deeper pond and a proper waterfall to be kept in the same base. Gardencare took out the old pond, dug a deeper pond and installed a high-spec pump, filter, and lining, and created a pebbled surrounding to make a feature of the pond.
