Dear Andy, I enclose a cheque as promised. The garden looks great and grass has grown very well with all the rain it's had. Have solved the puzzle of the Gazebo which is now up and painted green and have added 3 buddleias and a sedum to the borders. Hope your new greenhouse is doing well. Thanks Again. Jo

Just a little note to say thank you for creating my patio, working so diligently and restoring my faith ! A job well done, which I and all the children in my care will enjoy greatly. Thanks Lisa

There's a growing trend at the moment for using ultra modern materials and sharp angular layouts in the garden - especially at the front of the house. This has the initial effect of giving a "whole" design approach to the property. It's possibly not so relevant to the rear of the house, as you're generally looking from the house to the boundaries and beyond - which gives a whole different set of problems to overcome.
Return to the front /side garden, the benefits of the modern look - it's the first thing you see when you get home or friends /relatives visit and it sets a tone for the property in general. That clean look reflecting the bright airy look of newly developed homes. It also frames the property, clearly defining your boundaries. When it comes to maintenance it's a case of keeping that definition clear and keeping nature a little at bay.
This maintenance, though relatively straight forward, needs to be pretty constant, especially autumn /winter when decomposing leaves from neighbouring trees drop into sparkly granite chippings and machined ceramic paving becomes green tinged and slippy with algae thriving in our temperate.
I try, when designing front gardens, to keep those cleaner elements close to the house - paving leading to the doorway, granite chips under the windows and at the side of door entrances on which to put suitable planters / plants to frame the door away from the house itself. I like to use elements similar in style and colour but perhaps are a bit softer in appearance and when weathered, in the case of hard landscaping, won't detract from the overall scene.
Incorporating car parking, fencing / walling, privacy and a pleasing look to the front of your property needs a quite a bit of thought but the results should make that design, time and effort every bit worthwhile.
