Moulsham Lodge, Chelmsford Essex

A small domestic project based in Chelmsford gave us a garden which needed a simple transformation involving levelling off the ground, rendering of a wall and new fence panels across the boundaries including a new double gate to enter and exit the garden from the driveway.

The south wall constructed from brick is one side of the neighbour’s garage has now been rendered using a gris glair colour to allow for a new clean finish and feature wall. Contemporary slated fence panels were installed for a modern fresh look with trellis work slotted above to add height and to increase privacy from neighbouring houses. Once the ground was graded, we were able to install a seating area constructed of limestone gravel held together with metal edging to allow a separation from the lawn was placed in the southeast corner to provide a space in evening sun. A small border along the south wall was created to allow a climber to grow along the wall and to allow year-round plants to provide colour and scent near the seating area. An L shaped border had been extended to now run along the rear fence and the northern fence back towards the house to frame the lawn. Shrubs and infilled planting to provide colour and structure throughout the year.

“Pebble Design have been fantastic and I can’t recommend them highly enough. Ben’s designs were creative and inspired, easily surpassing what I could have imagined myself. Ben an Grace have been working hard in the garden and delivering high quality output with no corners cut. They are a pleasure to have around; very professional but also nice and chatty. Ben always takes the time to explain what he is up to and what he plans to complete that week, it has been fascinating to watch the garden evolve each week. I’m very pleased with their work and how the garden is progressing.”
