Levelling a garden lawn using sleepers

For this project in Eltham, London we needed to level the garden lawn using sleepers and aggregates before fitting the artificial grass.

A deck was going to be built from the bi-folds doors at the rear of the house to a newly built sleeper wall. Our task was to bring the existing lawn up to a similar level.

Spare sleepers were positioned along the sides of the garden as a retainer to the beds.

Once the sleepers were in place we added a membrane to the area along with timber fixings. A massive 19½ tonnes of aggregates were needed to level out the area before we were able to lay the Rectory grass.

This left a very gentle slope in the garden. The flower beds were defined and the sunken trampoline had neatly cut grass surrounding it.

The owners now had a family friendly garden they could use come rain or shine plus the improvements added value to the property.
