OAST HOUSE CLOSE - LANDSCAPE DESIGN & BUILD
"Jamie was recommended to us by a local builder he has worked alongside for some time. We had inherited 2 large patios that, when laid originally, were put straight onto earth using "dot and dab" so had no real substructure, had become uneven plus were prone to waterlogging after heavy rain and one section had been undercut by our natural pond so had started to tilt in towards the water. Jamie came up with a design that lifted the patios above water level with a good substructure, oak sleeper and gravel edges around natural Indian sandstone slabs with a couple of small flower beds built in. The work involved a fair bit of excavation and humping outgoing and incoming material by hand and barrow some distance as we could not get machinery to the site. We finessed some elements of the design as the work moved on but overall the final result was as close to the original plan as possible. We found Jamie responsive to our changes and he consulted us along the way as issues developed to ensure we were fully part of the process and approved as needed. We are well pleased with the end result and the new patios should outlast us! Would highly recommend Jamie"
