Decking Work

Posted by on Jan 25, 2014 in Projects

Decking offers an extension to your living area, a platform for socialising and relaxing, giving the illusion of a much bigger space. It can be a heightened platform to overlook your garden, or used to level out a sloping garden; single or multi level. Your proposed decking could offer a built in barbeque area,  water feature, table and chairs or even accommodate a hot tub! Here at Bourne Again gardens we can design and build to your specification, making your decking area exclusive to you. Decking can be made out of various materials, the obvious one being wood. We always use tantalized wood for our decking, offering a much longer life span due to being pressure treated. A preservative is injected into the wood, making it a well priced product, which is quality and always locally sourced by us. We are noticing an increase in demand for recycled and sustainable products for the garden and as a result of this are offering composite decking as an alternative to wood. Composite offers all of the benefits of wood but is sustainable and as flexible, without the need to stain/varnish. Recently Bourne Again Gardens carried out a raised decking project to overcome the problem of a heavily sloping garden. The decking was made to be in line with the rear door step offering an extension of the house, leading around to the original rear exit. The conservatory was higher then the rear door so a step in the decking was added to accommodate this. Our customer did not require a balustrade for aesthetic reasons, making the appearance of a full, spacious garden. Due to not having small children this did not create a health and safety issue. Our customers were delighted with the finished project which offered them an extension of their newly created sun...

Indian Sandstone Paving Job

Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Projects

There are lots of different types of paving but the most popular type we get asked for time and time again has to be Natural Sandstone. It offers a hardwearing, strong stone with a natural appearance which is ethically sourced and reasonably priced. The slabs are frost resistant and suited to the British weather. Gary and Andy have just finished a job using Indian Sandstone in Raj green. Indian Sandstone colours vary from green, brown, plum and grey. They slabs come in different sizes to enable a random pattern. Our customer asked for the old paving to be lifted and taken away; then the ground prepared for the new paving. A random pattern was used for the main body of the paving, edged with sets in the same stone. The paving was laid then pointed using a wet mix to make it to give a solid finish and to prevent weeds. Here is the job before, during and after …. The old paving to be taken up. Dolomite added and whacked down to provide a solid base to accept the paving From the other angle! The random pattern design process taking place Almost complete, sets in the same stone laid all the way around the outside. Completed and pointed Indian sandstone paving area view from the back gate. View from bottom corner. Natural, ethical, hard wearing, frost resistant, hand cut – this paving has it...

Welded Garden Sculptures

Posted by on Mar 9, 2013 in Projects

Gary at Bourne Again Gardens has recently put his artisic side to good use by designing and making some welded garden sculptures which have been commissioned by customers. The first was the design for the welded mushroom sculptures below. They were made for a customer who was looking for something different in her garden. The sculptures are approximately three feet and two feet tall and have two prongs at the bottom so they can be stuck into the ground. Last summer we did a stall at a garden open day for the National Garden Scheme (NGS) and sold out of these sculptures in two hours. These welded garden sculptures are priced at £25 a pair plus postage. Each is individually made, no two the same. They can be changed to suit your design.   The next piece that was designed was for Kimberleys Mum as a bespoke piece for next to her natural pond.   The dragonfly was commissioned to have a four feet wingspan and be a couple of feet tall. Gary designed the dragonfly and made it in his workshop using an anvil and Mig welder. The bare bone skeleton was put together first… The rest of the detail was then added to the dragonfly. The following pictures show the finished piece in situ by the pond. Please fill in the contact form if you are interested in having a bespoke piece designed and sculptured for your garden. The perfect gift for the gardener who has everything. The typical gardener will always be on the look out for something ‘different’, and here it is! A truly bespoke design and made entirely by hand. Each piece is different, made with love and built to last. The dragonfly is priced at £120 plus postage or free local delivery. Please use the contacts page for more information or to specify your...
