Garden Design, Thames Ditton

Project Overview

This project for our customer in Thames Ditton involved a complete re-design of the rear of their large garden creating a new patio area, pergola, pond and pathways to create a more usable space for the customer.


We created pathways leading up to the new patio area using bricks and infill gravel. We had to prepare a subbase using membrane and type1 crushed concrete, then topped with 20mm gravel for the finish. The border is a brick finish to tie in with the overall design.


We installed a simple fan shaped pergola to cover the main patio area, this was a bespoke make and overlooks the pond in the centre of the main patio area.

Patio Area

The patio area we created was approximately 5m x 6.5m. To supply and install Geo membrane which prevents the subbase from mixing with the soil. To supply and install 150mm type 1 subbase which was compacted with our Wacker plate machine.

To supply and install approximately 32.5 sqm of Indian Sandstone which was laid on a wet mortar bed. A slurry primer was used on each slab to insure the longevity of the installation.

The slabs were pointed with a resign based pointing compound to ensure the longevity of the patio area and to withstand jet washing unlike mortar pointing does. The sandstone paving was bordered with a clay brick finish.

Pond Installation

We created a new pond area which was 1.62m x 1.62m in size. This was a square pond situated within the main patio area as per the design. Edging with the same brick used throughout the project.

Oak Sleepers

Oak sleepers were installed around both bay trees to create natural looking flower beds.


Customer Testimonial

“I am delighted with the project Surrey Landscapers have recently completed in my garden. My idea was to create a ‘courtyard garden’ area with pergola and feature pond adjacent to a new garden building. Phil, Chris and the team did a really first-class job, including making suggestions to improve the original plan. From consultation to completion they were professional, courteous and endlessly helpful. The project was finished on time and work carried on whatever the weather. I can recommend Surrey landscapers without hesitation and will certainly use them for any other future garden projects. 5 stars.” Kay.
