Från slänt till oas

From slum to oasis

Time to dig

The excavation went smoothly as the road was so close, just loading onto the flatbed. It is now that you start to be able to see what it will look like when it is finished.

Talk about a litter box

Start building

The wall is delivered. Time to start building. Down with electrical pipes, ground cloth, drainage, crushing material and everything so you don't have to redo anything later. Good workout driving a wheelbarrow.

Towards new heights!

When the first laps are completed, it goes, it goes fast. The lot at the back of the house feels much bigger now. Time to start with the pool construction and to fill up with soil in the planting.

Winter break

The retaining wall project will be completed!

When spring comes, we can finish building the entire retaining wall project. All small details with the staircase with decorative stone and spotlights and sofa and a wooden corridor with lighting in the planting. Nice to plant some berry bushes and perennial plants.

Last but not least, the balcony floor

Now that the wall is finished, we can start with the final part, the patio floor. We have chosen to mix with both ground stone and wood seasoned with spits and a floor strainer of black polished decorative stones connected to a stone chest.

The oasis is ready

Now our oasis at the back of our house is ready. Spa bath with pool deck with storage underneath. Paved stone grill surface with a stone chest underneath and black decorative stone as a floor strainer. And most importantly, the Megawall retaining wall that holds the entire slope against the neighbor above.

Lamps and spits

We also wanted some subdued lighting in the evening. Spots in planks and ground stone as well as in the white decorative stone in the stairs to illuminate from below.. Also lights along the garden bridge and on privacy screens and storage.

Details and alternative solutions

We chose slightly different solutions for some data areas. Partly because the traditional way is a bit boring, but also to simplify. Maybe you can find something that you can spin on.
