    Hi John still on the subject of garden . I have 15 slabs to use on gravel as part of the back garden and would like to put pots on the slabs and gravel surrounding the slabs. Do I need to lay the slabs on a cement base and weed membrane for the surrounding gravel or both gravel and slabs on to the weed membrane? Thank you for your help .

    Hi Margaret, allowable fence height is 2 metres ie 6.5 feet. I think the left hand fence is probably taller than that but the road is on a hill and the adjacent garden has a higher level so it was never an issue. You are generally safe if replacing like with like in terms of fence heights which is what we did on the right although I don't think this exceeds 2m.

    Thank you so very much John. I am moving to from the house that I have lived in for 40 years, that has fantastic views and a mature garden. The bungalow where we are moving to, is in the west end of town, but has no view, and no interest in the garden, so I have my work cut out to create privacy.

    Hi there, yes there is a pump in the base of the pool to recirculate the water. Also a fleet of goldfish that appear to be thriving.

    We are going to do a complete make over at our London flat and its garden. We have a pond with a pump but a Koi Carps have vanished, (probably herons to blame), so wondering about water features. However occasional flogs are charming. We are thinking about a living wall since we have even taller red brick surrounding walls (we dig even deeper this time). I like your works very much. Thank you for replying to my question.

    The stepping stones are mounted onto concrete blockwork which has a smaller footprint and is also painted black. You never see them. Lighting is placed on the base of the pool on long spikes though you could also light laterally by screwing into the blockwork underneath the steps.

    Hi, they are a standard width from Silva timber. I don't remember precisely but somewhere in the region of 35-40m ie narrower than the standard 50mm. Also gaps between slats are larger than I normally specify ie 20mm. This was to allow a little more light through. It works well as they still function properly as screens but are a little more open.

    Of course. betula utilis 'jacquemontii' - very popular with us garden designers owing to the striking white stems but also as birch has a relatively small leaf which allows light to penetrate easily.

    The stone is a flamed basalt from China. It's not an expensive stone and most decent suppliers should be able to get this for you.
