Ryan’s terraced back garden was in need of a facelift, so he wanted to improve it with a retaining wall. An outrageous quote from a builder just to build a standard wall sent him in search of something more cost effective and visually appealing. He was able to completely transform his garden with WoodBlocX retaining walls, which also double up as planters and steps
An amazing project to work on was at RHS Malvern, where we worked with garden designer and gardening expert Jekka McVicar. It was a huge design as part of the Health & Wellbeing Garden in support of the Pathways charity, and incorportated large curved planters that revealed a central seating area.
We’ve all got an area in the garden that could look better or needs a bit of work. Ian had this problem but he also had an access problem; all materials would need to be transported through his house. This wasn’t a real issue as the WoodBlocX system is modular, making it really simple to move from the front to the back of the house by hand. Ian’s design included low-rise retaining walls that included steps and planters to bring the design together.
This is a brilliant example of a community coming together to create something they can all share. The layout needed to be easy to access with seating included. The finished design combined four large octagonal planters bordered with seating and planters, and because WoodBlocX are maintenance free they can be left to age naturally.
