Space for Family Life

Primary image

For those who have children, you will know that their endless energy needs a space to exercise itself. We can design spaces that allow your children to play safely and still meet the needs of the adults, whether that's gardening or relaxing.

Having a family is a wonderful part of life. However, balancing the needs and safety of young children with perhaps that of elderly members, it can be be quite difficult ensuring your driveway or garden are safe places to play and enjoyable for the whole family.

We are experienced at landscaping environments to meet the demands of family life and show some examples that we have built to accommodate.

Your Scenarios


We can design and build a wide range of stylish and practical patio and terrace areas to meet your needs.

Add to that a table and chairs, barbecue and retainer walls for protecting soft landscaping and plant life that can also double as a seating room for your guests, and you have the perfect set-up for inviting family and friends.

The photo featured on the right is a circular seated area, ideal for situating a barbecue.

Playing and Sports

Children love to run around, and together with their bikes, scooters, footballs and tents you may wish to make the best use of any open space you have for them.

Swimming pool area protected by fenceWe can help install the right mix of patio and turf area to meet their demands, together with safety considerations such as fences. We can also install rubber crumb set into a resin which is excellent for play areas and helps protect from hurt as result of a fall.

The photo on left shows a swimming pool we installed together with a protective fence so that children can play safely in the foreground patio area without worry of them wandering astray. 


You may have some unique hobbies that require special installations. For one customer we built a raised pond to keep coy carp fish. The pond is twice the depth than it appears due to the extra depth we exacvated beneath.


We can put up gates, walls, fencing, hedges to help protect your land and those within it. Many families also have pets, and we can build to make your driveway or garden pet-safe.


Wheelchair access from house to patioWe can adapt areas where you need for safe and easy wheelchair access.

We ensure that slopes meet a certain angle, there is flush levelling with the doorstep, and access ways are easily visible. For gravel driveways, we can use Nidagravel, which is wheelchair friendly.
