A pond in Maidstone


The first design commissioned and built since simple life became design only and used sub contractors to do the landscaping. There is a wall to the far end of the garden, two trees to keep, an Ivy and a dogwood. The requirement was to build a pond, have some raised beds for planting, an area of paving to sit and entertain and reduce the amount of spoil removed as far as possible. There was also a budget cap of £5,000.

As it turned out, there was also lockdown and the difficulties that presented to overcome. After several conversations and a couple of revisions, the final design was agreed and a meeting with the Sub contractors arranged. The work was carried out by Bart of Vu Gardens.

As you can see they have done a marvelous job of work.
