Sleeper Retained Lawn

 

A new build property with a very badly thought out garden, left this client with an unusable  area of garden where the ground had to fall almost a metre in a very short area.    Added to that a very poor quality job of lawn laying, and something had to be done. The solution was a retaining wall built of softwood sleepers, with steps down to a hoggin path along the pre-existing fence.   The now retained lawn was dug out and re-laid on a well-prepared surface.

 

Project Year: 2018

Project Cost: £10,001 - £25,000

Country: United Kingdom

Area: Beckington

 The upper level of the garden is retained by new treated softwood sleepers fixed to strong timber posts. A timber board protects the boundary fence from any build-up of water

 A Cotswold path-gravel (hoggin) is compacted to create a solid and low-maintenance path along the bottom of the wall, with steps down from the lawn. A new planting border is created at the top.
