Marple – Brand New Garden Lawn

Transformation of a Back Garden Lawn in Marple, Stockport

This back garden in Marple, Stockport was suffering from long-term neglect when the new owners contacted us. We rose to the challenge and transformed it from an unusable wasteland to a family back garden again. The garden was hand-weeded and hand dug with top soil screened, treaded and planked until it was perfectly level. Finally a new meadow turf lawn was laid and watered-in. You can see the transformation from start to finish of the job in the photographs below.

If anyone is looking for someone to landscape their new garden or maintain an existing garden, I can highly recommend David Andrews of Evergreen Landscaping in Marple Bridge. Tel. 0161 456 3861 / 07791 833143. Having recently moved here, the ‘garden’ we inherited was actually a muddy wasteland. David and Steve cleared and prepared the ground, laying new turf to form a lovely lawn edged with borders ready for planting. They also dug out and prepared ground in our driveway and planted two new hedges. Additionally, Steve cleared a lot of weeds from our patio even though we hadn’t asked/paid them to do this. The work was done quickly and efficiently, and they started a couple of days earlier than planned to fit in with better weather. They gave me excellent advice on how to maintain the new lawn and hedges, and also helpfully recommended a company for some other work we need doing (cavity wall ties). The company in question gave us the best quote, saving us a lot of money, so David’s local knowledge has also really helped us. There are a lot of so-called ‘landscapers’ out there, but if you want someone trustworthy and experienced, who genuinely cares about what they do, I recommend Evergreen. If anyone wants more information they are welcome to contact me.
