Hard and Soft Landscaping

Landscaping has always been part our service, supplying swimming pools in Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Construction of a swimming pool involves substantial disruption of the ground in its immediate vicinity, and sometimes complex preparation and groundworks. Usually, therefore, restitution and enhancement of the area around the pool, involving both hard and soft landscaping, is an integral part of the project.

Lifestyle-Construction has taken these skills to the next level, and routinely takes on substantial landscaping projects. Often these are built around a swimming pool, but not always.

Our experienced team will help you combine hard and soft landscaping, seating areas, lighting and other facilities, to provide a harmonious and beautiful result.

We are experienced in working alongside garden designers, architects and structural engineers. Some projects, in particular the first on this page, entail significant engineering challenges, ensuring safety of existing structures while working to transform their immediate surroundings.

We are also happy to take on smaller projects, such as driveways and surrounding areas, which can quickly transform the ‘kerb appeal’ and value of a property.
