Landscaping is a great way to turn an outside space into a fun, contemporary exterior living area that the whole family will enjoy. From simply paving and fences, to meticulously designed gardens A&B construction can create the garden of your dreams.
A garden for children & adults too?
The trick with a family garden is to create a design that not only looks good but is incredibly practical. After all, a garden needs to cater to the needs of you, your children and your friends. This means a combination of surfaces to deal with the various activities it will be subjected to, not forgetting planting to add interest, shade and perhaps even as a source of food (and learning for the children).
A space for chilling out?
If you like to lie in the sun – or shade – you’ll need to create an area that’s exactly for that purpose. So, what do you need? Ideally, a hard surface on which to place a chair. Put a lounger on grass and it will sink or sit unevenly, grass will grow long around its legs and die off underneath the seat. Natural shade is also a big bonus, so if you can put your seating area so that it’s partly shaded, and partly within the sun, this will save you forever having to move the chair or a parasol around it.
Busy Lives? Go low maintenance….
There’s no such thing as a zero maintenance garden – but there is such as a thing as a very low maintenance garden. The trick is in creating a space that’s easy to care for, but still has enough interest in it to make you want to spend time there (and invite your friends over). Hard landscaping is obviously the way to add interest – in terms of different materials and changes of level, but that has to be tempered with clever planting that looks good all year round, but needs little care. Basically, you just want to have a sweep round and a quick prune once a month, and be done with it.
