Alan Melville

Alan has a portfolio of stunning natural stone designs some of which have claimed prizes in local garden competitions! He favours use of natural materials in a garden setting which bring a more natural look and feel to the garden changing with the seasons in their own individual way. Alan not only has a wealth of experience and ideas to transform your outdoor living space, but is a real craftsman in the building and traditional restoration of stonework including the recent incorporation of a much loved veteran tree into an equally ancient stone dyke wall using locally crafted metalwork!
