Construction of new courtyard garden with large cruciform pond designed by Oliver Castledine.
The pond construction was reinforced concrete base with block wall sides with in-situ fibreglass liner and Yorkstone copings. Small Yorkstone ‘morning’ and ‘evening’ terraces were placed either side of the pond. There was a bespoke square glass pedestal retaining lilies. The near end of the pond was shallower to allow for marginal planting and large cobbles, the return from the filter system was regulated to flow uniformly through these to avoid stagnant areas of water. A balance tank was included to enable maintenance of the water level. There was also a bespoke glass waterspout beneath steps and glass balustrade, designed to match architectural details within the house. Lighting and planting schemes were installed including hardwood planters sourced from Holland.
Additionally the verges to the drive were laid with turf and the paddock was graded and seeded.
