Following a modern renovation of the client’s house, a modern renovation of their outdoor living space was required. Originally a large raised patio was in place, with eight large radius steps around the whole area - approximately 1.80m above the remaining garden areas. For structurally integrity, it was agreed that this would remain in place, and would be covered with a new hardwood deck area.
Firstly a new brick retaining wall was built to disguise the old patio, and retain the edge of the new deck. These works were scheduled by the client, and completed in blue engineering grade bricks to complement the colour of the house doors, windows and fascia’s.
We then installed the new raised deck – to fill in the area between the house walls, with an angled section offset on a 45°angle to optimise views out into the garden. The framework was constructed using oversized tanalised timber, supported by vertical posts at regular intervals. The deck was then clad with ‘Yellow Balau’ hardwood deck boards, finished with a ribbed surface, screwed into place using high grade stainless steel screws.
Two large feature steps were then installed around the house walls to link the interior and exterior levels. LED lighting was also built in around the step edges to offer ambient lighting. A unique raised planter was also installed, being clad with slate walling stone to complement some of the feature walls inside the property. Bespoke balustrade and handrails were then fabricated, powder coated and installed to safely define the edge of the area. Feature steps were then installed to link the raised deck to the remaining garden areas.
I would highly recommend Revitalise Gardens. Having looked on their website I was impressed with some of the larger scale projects they have done. This job in comparison must have seemed relatively small for them, so I was very impressed with the fact that their customer service, advice throughout and attention to detail made me feel like I was a very important customer to them. The removal of the trees relied on me seeking approval from my City Council, and they were very helpful throughout this process. Highly recommended!
One of the best trades we have encountered. Excellent service. Polite and tidy. Early starts and full day worked. Work finished to a very high specification. Site left spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend this company.
Professional service from start to finish. Isaac initially came to inspect the garden and discuss my ideas on what I was looking to achieve. From this he was able to provide full drawings of what the finished garden would look like along with a full detailed quote. Upon commencement of the works the team worked tirelessly in order to complete the project within the agreed timescales. The end result is fabulous!
Isaac and his team have been efficiently maintaining the parts of my garden that I struggle with due to incapacity for several years. They are very processional, work to a high standard and are very good time keepers. I have been extremely pleased with the work they have carried out always discussing any aspects necessary. They work in a very tidy manner and are thoroughly nice chaps to boot. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Isaac and his team did a fantastic job on the front path and wall repairs needed. I have got quotes for more work and fully intend to use them again! They were considerate of the needs I had and my budget as well. They were quick too and worked around my working hours. I am really pleased with how it all looks now, they have done a brilliant job!!
Friendly, professional and courteous. Able to be flexible on arrangements. Delivered a lovely result and gave lots of tips for aftercare. Will definitely use again.
We own a newly renovated modern house; and the garden planting needed to match, Isaac listened to ideas we had and the design he prepared was perfect. We've had people taking photos of the garden, actually stopping outside the house to talk to us about it. They worked so hard to achieve this, they had the skill to be able to adapt the design as they went along, working with the natural features of the garden and enhancing them with the new bits. They are all incredibly talented at what they do, and really nice people to work with.
Isaac and his team were fantastic. Extremely polite and helpful with my constant questions. Hard working (even in the heavy downpours) and Isaac ensured the highest quality product but at a really competitive price. Highly recommended.
Revitalise Gardens have assisted with a project to make over our garden for my son Oliver aged 9 who is severely disabled and was previously unable to access the garden. They dedication and commitment to the project was second to none and the works couldn't have been completed without their input. The work has made a huge difference to Oliver and the entire family and we thank them greatly for this.
We have used Isaac and his team in the past and were not disappointed! We decided to ask them to come back again this year to do further works in our garden. We had various areas of the garden done; patio areas, new trellis fencing, a border shape changed and extended, new border plants and stepping stone paths. The team on our job was Nick and Sam. Excellent in every way - competent, professional, friendly and each had a sense of humour at all times, especially on the days when it absolutely poured with rain! Everything each day was left tidy. I would strongly Revitalise Gardens.
