Child Friendly Garden Transformation

Today was another really fabulous transformation process as you can see from the photo’s below – Mr & Mrs Neilsen contacted us for some advice on how to make their back garden useable yet aesthetically pleasing and safe for their now toddling little girl. The photograph below shows how the garden looked before we started….


The garden has a lovely decked area, perfect for enjoying those balmy summers evenings barbecuing with friends – and when they first did their garden and utilised the decorative stones looked quite stunning in stark contrast to the rest of the garden but over time the stones get displaced and dirty and the whole garden starts to look somewhat messy.

Mr Neilsen works offshore for long spells at a time and has very little time to tend his garden. Mrs Neilsen has her hands full looking after their young daughter so has little time to tend the garden either. They wanted a garden which was still of a low maintenance nature yet safe for their daughter to play in. We were asked if we could cover the existing area with our artificial grass – which of course we could and the rest is merely history – the photo below shows the transformation and really makes this garden stand out. Ultra low maintenance, child friendly and aesthetically pleasing – that’s what we would definitely term as a truly Unreal Garden….

….And Here’s The End Result!!!


It took some doing but we completed this transformation and made the garden a stunning, low maintenance easy to enjoy garden for years to come. One of our greatest challenges to date and complete with a simple decked patio now too!!!

Grimsby Garden Overhaul – Scartho Top


From This……

This week we embarked upon turning Mrs Hollingsworth’s Garden Nightmare into something of an Oasis. Set on the relatively new development known locally around Grimsby as Scartho Top (or colloquially as Scaffa Top) – Mr & Mrs Hollingsworth have a very nice house with a decent sized back garden, but as with most new developments, the gardens are the last aspect of the house the builders seem to consider when building houses.

The ground was badly drained and although the previous owners probably thought that by laying the back garden most to gravel it would likely be low maintenance – how they were wrong!!! Gravelled gardens can be lovely but really need to be laid with consideration as to the purpose they are meant for. Gravel can be very nice to look at and can create wonderful features in parts of gardens if used sympathetically but they are seldom ideal when pets or children are present – and definitely not laid loose.

the Hollingsworth’s got in touch having seen our Facebook Page and the previous garden transformations we have carried out all over the region. We visited their garden and discussed their options, discussed how the garden was to be used and what they hoped to achieve and arrived at the conclusion of installing a great quality artificial grass which would stand up to the rigours of a young family. We suggested the use of our aluminium artificial lawn edging, again due to its maintenance free properties and expected longevity and also supplied a range of top quality plum slate chippings to create a beautifully contrasting border.

We think that the whole garden is quite simply stunning and a place for the whole family to enjoy. What do you think?

To This….


We’d like to express our thanks to the Holingsworth’s for letting us realise their garden ambitions and wish them good luck with their new baby due in a few weeks time….
