New Driveways to Composite Decking in Guildford | Including the Right Garden Features for Your Needs

When designing your garden, the most important thing is that it meets your needs. This means creating a space which supports the way you use it. WJ Swansborough Garden Services Limited can do just that. Our landscapers work closely with you to carefully plan each element of your garden. This covers everything from new driveways, garden patios and composite decking to more extensive garden transformations. To get you started thinking about the features you will incorporate into your space, we have created this guide.

Trading in the local Bordon and Guildford areas since 1989, we are a trusted choice for all landscaping work, from block paving to garden rooms. Whatever vision you have for your space, our team is ready to create a successful design which maximises your garden.

Here are some landscaping elements you must consider:


Most households can benefit from a patio. If you want a clean, sturdy area for outdoor dining and entertaining, or so you can enjoy nice weather in comfort, a patio is for you. In addition, a patio is ideal for getting the most from your garden because you can use it all year. Garden patios also help reduce garden maintenance because they are easier to care for than grass or other plants.


Timber and composite decking are more natural-looking alternatives to a patio, offering similar benefits. You may opt for a deck if you want to enhance the practicality of your garden but want a feature which blends in more with the natural elements of your space. Decking is also an effective solution for sloping sites in Guildford, so our landscapers can help make the most of awkward terrain.


A new driveway can really help utilise your front garden. If you have a front garden which you never use and are fed up with maintaining, a driveway is a practical, minimal-fuss solution, whether you opt for block paving, tarmac, concrete or gravel. You will also benefit from a driveway if parking in your area is difficult, ticketed or subject to a permit.

Furthermore, a driveway is more convenient for unloading shopping and provides easier access for those with a disability or mobility/health issue. It can also increase safety when getting young children in and out of the car.


Paths are an important part of garden design because they connect different areas/features, enhance the flow of the garden and provide clear, non-slip access. Some ideas for garden paths in Guildford include:

  • Connecting front gardens and new driveways to garden patios, wood/composite decking and the rear garden

  • Providing easy access to a shed, greenhouse, garden room, washing line or anything else

  • Use a path to add texture with materials such as block paving or natural stone

  • Our landscapers can use a path to lead your eye around the garden
