London’s Garden Bridge

A few weeks ago Kebur tweeted asking peoples opinion on the new Garden Bridge in London. ‘The Garden Bridge is a new 366m-long footbridge that will stretch across the River Thames, from the top of Temple underground station on the Northbank to the South Bank. The bridge will hold an expansive garden. Footpaths will weave through the garden, creating a new pedestrian route which will be free and open to all between the hours of 6am–midnight. ‘ ( https://www.gardenbridge.london/about-the-project ) There are many positives and negatives about London getting the new bridge, it will be a new tourist attraction in the city and will be the first of its kind, It also adds green space to the centre of London which can be seen as a concrete jungle, however the project is not cheap, some people believe that the money could be better spent improving park areas all over London, others are worried that it will block out views on the Rive Thames. Our Twitter feed went a little crazy with peoples opinions mainly negative, but we’d love to know what you think or what should be included on the bridge to make it the perfect setting in the centre on London. Kebur launched its first ad in Pro Landscaper magazine this month, there is one on the website which links directly to Keburs Contempo Range and also one in their latest magazine, make sure you subscribe to see their articles and their debate on The Garden Bridge....

Kebur’s latest landscape project!

Karl and Daryl from Kebur Landscape Division have just completed this great project!   The paving slabs used are Kebur’s Kandala Grey mixed size patio packs. These natural sandstone slabs come in 4 different sizes 900×600, 600×600, 600×300, 300×300, the total patio pack cover 15.3m2. They then have created a pathway using Bradstone Woburn Rumbled in Graphite, this block pavior comes in mixed sizes or one single size. They have also used these blocks for the driveway which keeps the front and back garden uniformed. Hardwood sleepers where then used to edge the patio and create these unique steps down to the lawn, this style is becoming more and more popular. They were also used to create planters at the back of the garden, a lot of people prefer using sleepers than walling blocks because it looks more natural. Lastly the Kebur Landscapers installed Grange Closeboard panels using concrete posts and gravel boards. The benefit of using concrete posts is that they are much longer lasting and won’t need replacing any time soon! Any questions or if you  would like some more information on how to get this look call us on 01252 517571 or email us on...
