School Hill, Stratton
A complete garden redesign where the client wanted to swap a traditional Cotswold cottage garden for something more contemporary and make better use of the space for their children to play in. So, we created the water feature and patio out of diamond cut York stone from a quarry in Yorkshire. We used a bespoke copper water fountain and a new garden design was planted to work with the new landscaping.
Tetbury – natural pool construction
This was a really interesting project, we created a natural swimming pool for the client who wanted to swim without any need for chlorine. Here we built the pool itself adding a regeneration zone filled with wetland plants to organically filter the water. We were happy with the end result; by landscaping the surrounding garden with turf and designing a complimentary planting scheme this meant that the natural pool looked in-keeping and ‘settled’ in the space. We then planted a one acre orchard for the family to make the most of the land.
Latton – Garden redesign
Here we re-designed an old, faded garden to give it a simple and sleek feel. We removed all the existing shrubs and old patio and using porcelain paving, high quality turf and a low maintenance planting scheme we were able to create a contemporary space with both an entertaining and dining area.
Cirencester – Landscaping refresh
This impressively large plot was in need of an overhaul and bringing up to date so after the removal of the 1960’s patio and serval large trees we set to work. Making the most of the space with porcelain paving for an entertaining/living space and installing a complementary lighting scheme. The then turfed to create a large lawn area making it low maintenance for the owner and to frame the lovely view into the field below.
Horcott – Modern landscaping design
The brief here was bringing the indoors ‘outdoors’ with a family friendly space that was low maintenance and contemporary. By removing the old Bradstone patio we doubled the size of the area using limestone paving to give it a light & fresh feel. With a modern lighting scheme to make the most fo the paving we used topiary crab apple trees to break up the space, adding texture and colour.
Stratton – Pond Construction
The goal here was to create a large pond for the client whilst using the slope of the garden to incorporate a blade effect waterfall. By using Cotswold stone for the stairs we were able to mirror the large drystone wall we had installed in the background. We then sympathetically designed the planting scheme.
All works were done to a high standard, Building control were more than happy and I feel that having considerate contractors who did a good job from the beginning put us in a good position with building control who were then very helpful throughout the project.
On our side and rear extension project, Jim did all the clearance, removed an old garage, dug the footings, poured the concrete, dug the soakaway and drains. All the work was started on the day he arranged and finished within the timescale that he suggested.

I would recommend Bliss Landscapes and would certainly use them again.
