Garden landscaping is the core of our business model. We design and build gardens of all shapes and sizes and our dedicated team of staff have vast experience reaching all the way back to when Garden Options was established in 1997.
We have a particular passion for working with natural stone. There are a wide range of products available and we love working with Sandstone and Limestone materials, both of which are UK sourced and imported from abroad. Reclaimed paving is also a favourite and we love the character you get when working with York and Caithness flagstones.
Another feature important to us is garden walling. We particularly enjoy building dry stone walls using locally sourced reclaimed stone. We find that this creates instant character in a garden space, harder to achieve with brick or concrete.
Water features are a bit of a passion of ours. We love the challenges that water creates and our experience tells us that water features need to be treated with respect. Simple design and clever engineering are the secret to their success and we love the instant excitement and enjoyment that they bring.
We also have experience in building timber structures like pergolas and archways and various forms of timber decking and garden structures.
We cover all aspects of what is called ‘sort landscaping’ and some of these include preparing and laying turf to form new lawns, building and filling raised beds to create vegetable gardens and larger earthworks to alter land gradients in garden creation.
Preparing and implementing planting layouts is another area of garden landscaping that we greatly enjoy. After the construction of a garden or garden feature, it’s the planting that really brings the area to life and we do our best to suggest planting layouts that offer year round interest with colour, texture and scale to complete the overall look and feel to the area.
