We love getting feedback from our customers and have really enjoyed working with this customer who needed us to help him sort the garden in his new home which had been left in a terrible mess by the developers of this new build bungalow. The garden was sloping in all directions and had a very steep bank at the end of the garden which meant that the customer who wanted a garden shed and a studio cabin for his art hobby could not be fitted. The customer was also a very keen gardener and wanted to make the space he had in the garden prepared ready for him to turn it into a Japanese inspired garden.
The customer had visited several times our Downham Market Log Cabins and Shed Display Site which is located next to Downham Home and Garden and behind the famous Arbuckles on the A10. He spent a good time discussing with our team his requirements for a summerhouse for his garden to use as an art studio which was one of his keen hobbies. He also discussed our range of garden sheds and how we can help him prepare the garden to make it suitable for the summerhouse and shed and also give him the garden he so desperately wanted.
Our team spent time working through his list of requirements and was able to understand his needs and to suggest suitable models that would work well as a garden studio and also look great in his garden.
Part of our service is to offer a free site survey to understand the requirements of the work and to discuss face to face what is involved with the work, address any concerns and also get a feel for specifically what is needed to get the desired end result.
This job required a massive amount of levelling of the garden, positioning of a railway sleeper retaining wall and then the fitting of a Probase plastic grid base to support the summerhouse and shed. Once the ground was levelled, we then spread many tonnes of blue slate onto a heavy duty membrane to give the finish the customer wanted ready for him to prepare his garden design.
Once the garden has been prepared, we fitted the log cabin onto the Probase and then painted the cabin on the outside and inside with Sadolin Supadec to the colours the customer had selected.
The transformation of this garden was simply amazing and for our team to have been involved seeing the initial mess to the amazing end result was such a privileged especially as the customer had recently lost his wife and was downsizing from a much larger family home and was clearly still very upset and needed the garden sorted so that he could get his art studio up and running. The customer was such a lovely man and was great to work with. He was also a very talented gardener and garden designer, is a very talented artist and its was such a pleasure to do this garden redevelopment for him.
