Cheam Clients’ Questions Answered


Which materials are best for patios?


Landscape companies most typically work with block paving, concrete, natural stone and brick. Our Cheam landscape gardeners work with all three, and can help you ascertain which will best suit your needs should be unsure which to opt for. Generally speaking, concrete is at the utilitarian, cheaper end of the spectrum, while block paving and natural stone are a bit more expensive, and seen by landscape gardeners’ as a “premium” option.


…and for driveways?


Typically, landscape companies will build driveways out of tarmac, gravel, concrete, brick and block paving. The latter is probably the most popular modern choice; we’re constantly installing block paving driveways in and around the Cheam area, as clients can get creative with the patterns/colours featured. But pattern-imprinted concrete is also very much in vogue, gravel driveways are fantastic for large, rustic properties, and concrete is (as with patios) a very affordable and long-lasting option.


Which styles of fencing do I have to choose from?


The most popular types of fencing amongst our Cheam clients are close board fencing, overlap fencing, garden trellis (added to the top of a fence, picket fencing and post fencing. Keep in mind that investing in quality fencing, and having it installed by knowledgeable landscape gardeners, is important for two reasons: firstly, fencing fulfils a vital purpose in protecting your garden from intruders and unwanted snoopers; secondly, fencing has a big part to play in the overall aesthetic of your garden. Poor fencing, or badly installed fencing, can compromise both these things.
