High Street, Cuckfield, Feb 2007

These works Started in early February 2007. This job was first looked at in September 2006.An initial consultation was undertaken and a few ideas were considered..

When Ian viewed the garden was as below:-

We came up with a few ideas and drew up a rough plan. As our customers were not going to be available during the construction it was agreed that we would intially complete the preparation and then fine tune the project once the initial concrete base was in and we could all meet up for a site visit!

First sketch Sept 2006


We had no idea of the size of the well or the old sunken greenhouse area when this sketch was drawn. Once excavated we found the well much larger and the pond had to shift. A space for a shed on the right was added and the left area by the greenhouse became a small upper terrace. These changes you will see in the pics below

Works began rapidly in February 2007, we dug out using our mini digger and disposed of the debris immediately by our small tipper trucks. The property has a shared drive, so our remit was to work as quickly as possible in a tight situation. We met a few days of heavy rain whilst we were working! Simon and Barry braved it all.
