These works were completed around Easter time 2018 for our customers in Tonbridge Kent. Yes its an hours drive from us over the Forest, but well worth it. It was a physical project but we transformed their frontage. We used a good local firm to cart away the debris and Parkers obtained the blocks for us.Preparation involved several grab loads out, retaing walling needed with secure footings and a well prepared brick drive was laid.
Below you can follow the works
When we first visited
Not a welcoming front garden. Quite a slope and overgrown
First job was to clear some of the green waste
Handwork and our mini digger was used to clear
Then we had several grab loads of soil.sub soil to go
We kept digging and piling carefully. We were uncovering drains,
After clearance we put a sub base down and laid footings for the brickwork
Once cleared Peter could get on with the walling
We set the wall on an attractive sweep
We had to be aware of and make good drainage found
More materials away and delivered
walling is now well underway, weep holes placed
Blocks can now be laid over the compacted sub base!
Peter carefully lays
Drive taking shape
The pattern looks good!
