Design and Landscaping
For major landscaping projects, a significant proportion of the value is created during the design phase. This is when the big decisions are taken about your project that will bring the high-impact result you will be looking for. We will provide you with a full design and build service, starting with a free initial consultation, followed, conditional on your instructions, by a detailed measured survey. Then drawings, schedules-of-work and materials-specifications are generated for your consideration and feedback. Only when you are fully satisfied with the specifications will we carry out the work on site. At every step you will be involved, for feedback, approvals and development of the plans.
In many instances, the landscaping forms part of a wider-ranging project where all specifications and drawings have been generated in advance by your architect. Herringtons is ready to work to your requirements, following an initial review and feasibility discussion. Our work begins with site set-up and clearance, marking out from your drawings, then we proceed with grading, drainage, levelling and landscaping work according to your specifications. From the tough underground stuff such as deep foundations and drainage work, retaining walls and underpinning, to finely crafted walls, gateways, access roads, pathways and drives, paving, ponds and water features, we are ready to fulfil your most demanding landscaping requirements!
Groundworks and Drainage
Perhaps you are building an extension and remodelling the garden at the same time? Or you are carrying out a new build where the landscaping of the site plus the drainage and groundworks are all part of the same project-phase? Herringtons can deliver a complete groundworks, drainage and foundations-laying service according to your specifications. Better still – when the building work is complete we can come back and carry out the garden landscaping to finish off the job!
