General Landscaping Work in 11190
Posted 19 September 2016
Job Description:
We have just completed the installation of a pool at our house in Couiza and now need to landscape the surrounding area to make access to the pool safe. We have identified the key items needed as: 1. We will require a retaining wall to be built to the rear of the house to contain the first terrace. This will be approx. 16 meters long and 1.4 m high. We want this to done using 27cm thick reinforced concrete blocks and then rendered in a finish that matches the house. This also needs to include a gravel path laid between the house and wall to match the stone used around the property. This is approx. 18m x 2m. 2. To build steps from side of house up the slope to the swimming pool. This is to remove the steep slope currently providing access. The area to cover is 35 m length rising approx. 6m high in total. We anticipate these would be approximately 40 steps with wooden fronts and gravel tops 1.2m wide. 3. We need a further retaining wall between the pool and the steps to retain the slope from the house side of the pool. This is 15 m length 1.2m high using 20cm thick reinforced concrete blocks, and again render in a finish to match the house. 4. Around the pool we will need a stone wall (cemented to ensure it is stable) behind swimming pool 16 m length and 1 m high using stone on site. This will need to then be flattened off to fit with the existing dry stone wall behind. 5. Finally there is a low plateau to the right of the pool (if facing the house) that will require a low block wall at end to allow users to step away from the pool to what will be a seating area. This is 10 m length 0.4 m high, will need to include a step in the middle for easy access and then render the wall either side of the step in a finish to match the house. All render elements must fit with the house but be of a quality suitable for landscaping rather than house building. We are open to other ideas and suggestions you may have to make this a useable and safe area. We can provide photos to of the existing four areas to give you an idea of the work and you can also visit at any time as the garden is currently open to the back of the property. You will need to let us know you intend to do this so as not to cause alarm to neighbours and those who look after the house for us.
