Mobility friendly garden created in Gillingham

The brief from my clients was very clear – to create a mobility friendly garden which flowed from one section to another.  The clients were keen to get rid of their existing lawn which suffered from bad drainage and surface water pooling and to use stone and gravel to create an oasis of tranquility where they could easily get around, relax and entertain.

Access from the conservatory was a key consideration and had to be completely redesigned for scooter access and mobility.  The solution was a curved path flowing out from the door on both the left and right hand sides to provide seamless access to a new patio and a second seating area.

A french drain was also included to solve the bad water drainage problem.  The hard landscaping was all  done by Mike Kynock of Landscaping & Property Care and his team using Raj Blend Sandstone and Cotswold round gravel.
