Upminster

Upminster finished months ago been rubbish at updating! But worth the wait..........
Pete Morley from The Plastering Co prepares the pond with beaded edges, mesh for strength and render aid as a scratch coat. Once Pete has finished with a rubbed up top coat, 4 coats of G4 Bonda glass pond sealer is applied.  Pond is now ready for the for water, lighting, pump, plants and fish  




Oak raised sleepers and retaining wall ready for planting- left. Below- pond construction has started with a shelf at each end for marginal planting and lights, the pond will be rendered and sealed with G4 pond sealer.


Upminster continues.   Jenny our designer has designed a new area with raised sleeper veg beds.We have started to build these in Green French Oak planed with a chamfered edge.

New drive and Art Deco gate

Image
A new front drive and gate for Mr & Mrs I in Leigh on sea Essex. We were also asked to commission a new gate to complement the art deco front doors. I think this has been achieved to great effect!

Swiming pool transformation

Image
A fantastic transformation in Rochford Essex Mr and Mrs R wanted a change from the Indian sandstone around there pool, and asked for a more Mediterranean feel.........



 And this picture shows how well this was achieved........ the picture does not do justice to the 1200mm x 1200mm porcelain tile, but believe me it looks amazing. We have also introduced new lighting around the pool...
