All Done... This deck is approx 38sq mts in size
Examples from some of our recently completed and on-going Landscaping work.
 
The pictures show the use of paving slabs as low retainer walls. This is a very strong and cost effective method of creating a solid wall to retain soil where garden levels change or there is a need for zero maintenance walling.  These slabs are set into a concrete foundation.
 
In the second picture we show engineering bricks set against the slabs to add detail but also to facilitate easy cutting with the lawn mower. This is part of the overall landscaping project which includes the decking pictures shown above.  Still building the deck at this time......
 
A few days further on now and the deck has been completed. This covers an area of about 38 sq mts and offers plenty of room for a good sized table and chairs and perhaps a swing or additional benches. Ideal for entertaining....
