Landscaping project in South Hams

This is another of our current projects – a large landscaping job just down the road from us here in Halwell. We worked on this property for the previous owner, installing a large pool here a number of years ago. It has really settled in nicely, looking like it’s always been there. The new owner wanted to work on some other areas of the land, so we bought in the excavators and dumper to level this area and excavate for this stunning wooden greenhouse and planter area.

The retaining wall is made from gabion baskets with facing stone pairs; function with style. We have since added an amazing sunken fire pit with nooks and crannies for wood storage, candles and inbuilt lights . . . and more gabion baskets! The low wall has been clad with matching stone too. A really beautiful project, and we can’t wait to visit next year when it’s well-established.
