Bespoke Project

At New Leaf Gardens we can offer a full design and landscape service and bespoke garden projects like this one…Beautiful stone walling with a garden seat created in an old cottage garden.  We created a new Yorkshire Stone paved area, a cut above the block paved driveways and not a lot extra in material costs.  […]

A few ideas and photos

I haven’t added to galleries and ideas for a while as we have been very busy over the Spring and Summer. One of the comments we have had from people we have done gardens for is that we should have more photos on our website. So, until the site has a bit of a re-vamp […]

I do like a pond….

Ponds aren’t for everybody (they don’t go well with young children!) but I do like to get them in as many gardens as possible. I like them because they add more interest to a garden than anything else I can think of.  They are great for wildlife, look good most of the year and can […]

With Matt the builder on board, we are more than happy to look at doing block stone driveways and I thought it would be a good idea to show some pictures of driveways he has done. The terracotta setts driveway is mine. It’s been down for a couple of years now and there is no […]

Make the most of your space

The weather has been so mild this winter (up to now) that we have managed to keep going.  We have been working on the hard landscaping for three large gardens so that they are ready for planting up once the weather improves, probably after Easter. We also worked on a large decking project that has […]
