Mr and Mrs Monkhouse had a crumbling, old driveway that was too small for their needs and so, after deciding they needed a more practical and attractive area, they contacted Aura Landscapes.
They had a few ideas of what sort of thing they wanted and things they didn’t like – they knew for example, that they didn’t want the drive coming straight up to their front door.
They discussed their ideas with Mike who went away and came back with a few suggestions for them to decide between. Being extremely pleased with these ideas, they decided on a design that incorporated their vision to have a driveway that didn’t come all the way up to their house. Mike had designed a driveway that used slate to break up a full driveway – and to give an attractive focal feature just outside their front door.
Marilyn tells us, “I was very impressed with the professionalism of the team and the little touches which I hadn’t seen before with other companies. I was pleased they had supplied a portaloo for the team to use and also learned they had dropped cards in to our neighbours to inform them of the work that was due to take place. Our neighbours very much appreciated this little considerate touch”
Mr & Mrs Monkhouse also tell us they were impressed with the workmanship from employees at Aura Landscapes; “The team were a good laugh while being very professional and doing a great job.”
Rob and Marilyn are so pleased with their driveway and have had so many positive comments from passers-by and are proud to recommend Aura Landscapes to their friends and family. They are so pleased with it they are out there constantly sweeping up to keep it looking perfect.
Mrs Monkhouse tells us “I sweep the driveway more than I hoover the house!”.
Mr and Mrs Monkhouse’s driveway was laid using Marshalls Drivesys Split Stone and edged in Marshalls Argent Graphite and Dark Casarta Slate!
