We are
hill experts

We can make steep
sections seem level

Using decking and integrated planting
to create new large level areas over a sloped site.

Garden connection to the home is key. Decking is a cost-effective attractive, durable solution. Whether it’s high quality composite decking or timber. Once it’s down you would never imagine the home is on a sloped section. This Cashmere garden now appears entirely level.

We stabilise hill banks with retaining walls and other solutions

We can offer land damage assessment, ground strength testing and stabilisation solutions. We core-test land where necessary and can keep costs down on retaining solutions based on what is actually required.

Expensive retaining walls can often be avoided.

We also revisit ugly existing retaining walls, with planting or cladding opportunities.

Where retaining walls are required, they can be constructed out of a wide range of materials. We have years of experience in building attractive retaining walls at a very high standard.
Our retaining walls are build to last.
