Gravel gardens are an ideal way of having a low maintenance garden, it provides an ideal area for drought tolerant planting and is relatively cheap to design. You may even require the gravel garden for off road parking/driveways but wish to keep a level of beauty at the same time with flowers and border plants.
Costs: - Gravel and membrane to suppress the weeds is inexpensive so it is better to spend a little extra on the plants and garden sculptures (if any) these will add more interest to the gravel garden.
Maintenance: - Less watering and weeding is required because of the gravel mulch and membrane.
We will prepare a landscaping design for the gravel garden (if required) a specification and a cost schedule before implementing any work, we understand you want little disruption as possible.

Although my wife and I broadly knew how we wanted our garden landscaped, Gareth used his expertise and experience to fine tune our ideas. The result was beyond our expectations and numerous people have commented on how wonderful the garden looks. This was the second time we have used Gareth and have no hesitation in recomending his services. Paul Bedwell. Glossop
