    Too much block, walls….overdone. It’s not a plaza for god’s sake, it’s a yard.

    Wow! I live in North Wales and am struggling on my own with the hardscape in my garden. I live alone and its difficult trying to work projects alone. My garden is on three levels and on the right side its just a long slope, I;m digging it all at the moment and am finding old bricks, tiles, fire glass that has just been buried in the soil in the past, I am sore and disheartened. You are absolutely amazing and your clients must be thrilled. Well done to you and your team.
