Tiered stone walls, Exeter

The clients’ original patio was very slippery and uneven. Their rockery area was becoming difficult for them to maintain and the access through the rockery to the rest of the garden was not practical. The brief was to create a new, more usable patio, tier off the rockery area to create beds that would be easier to maintain and create better access to the garden. The works included: construction of three stone retaining walls in a dry stone effect, a sandstone patio and steps from the back door of the house to the lawn.

“Green Man Gardens have done an excellent job in our garden, putting in a new patio and terrace. They kept us fully informed as they did the work, talking through different possibilities. They were very conscientious, doing the work carefully, to a high standard and using good quality materials. They were friendly and approachable, often putting in that extra effort to accommodate our needs. As they proceeded through the job, they minimised any inconvenience and always tidied up thoroughly. We were very pleased with the final result and asked them back a year later to do a path to the end of the garden and a retaining wall for a screen of small trees and shrubs.”
