“We have been using David at Forever Green Landscapes now for at least 5 Years. We decided to have a new perimeter fence and gate in our old house plus a paved seating area at the top of the garden which he did in black limestone and it looked fantastic!
We sold that house in 2013 in two days with three people bidding on it and the garden was the main thing that sold it!
We then moved to a larger house which required renovating, David laid two patios side and rear in Indian stone with fancy steps leading into the garden. He also removed a pond and re-turfed a very tired lawn for us.
Some fencing was replaced and then the garden was dressed and tidied up.
The resulting work cost up around £6,800 with materials and labour but has added £10-15k on the houses value accoring to 3 of our local estate agents! (from the condition we bought it in!)
David designed the patios to create the most impact possible with our budget and it was well worth the wait (and mess)”
I had first met Dan when he owned his first property in Ripon. Dan wanted a blue stone patio laid in a corner of the his back garden. The corner was of no use and it needed to be transformed into a summer patio area.
A few years past and Dans family grew larger, needing to move to a bigger home. Recently purchased a bigger house on quarry moor in Ripon, The garden had not been maintained for a long time.
We discussed the following work that was to be done in the garden.
1. The existing pond in the garden needed to be filled for the children’s safety.
2. A new patio are was to be laid including a seating area.
3. A large step was to be constructed on the patio area for new patio doors to be fitted into the property.
The patio area was made to curve, with the step made to match. A maron brindle brick was used to edge the patio and for the front of the steps.
This idea with used to tie in all area in with each other. When the existing pond was filled, the area was prepared and turfed, allowing the children to enjoy the new garden.
I later went on to lay a patio at he side of the property. The first indian stone patio was laird turning the five random sized slabs to make the two areas differently.
The second Indian stone patio was laid with the paving joins staggered in coarses.
