Ellendale Developments cater for all forms of groundwork and landscaping work. A garden is a place of relaxation at home or a welcoming important first impression to a business, but even the most impressive-looking landscape might need groundworks digging. We have undertaken countless projects in Stretford, each one unique in its own way, but there are a few that are ever-popular;
If it’s professional installers of driveways and patios in Stretford you’re looking for then you’ve come to the right place. Ellendale Developments have many years of experience working with different materials to produce gorgeous driveways and patios that last for years. Some of the driveways and patios that we have installed have used;
Block paving is still the Number One choice for driveways and patios. Block paving is hard- wearing, easy to maintain, individual blocks are easily replaceable if broken, and they come in a variety of colours, shapes and sizes. Best of all you can arrange them in virtually any pattern that you can imagine, although, the herringbone pattern is still our favourite! For help with designing a block paving driveway or patio, get in touch and we’ll be glad to help.
Curbing finishes of a new driveway installation nicely. After all, it’s pointless having a new tarmac driveway installed if the tarmac just stops at the edge of your grass! It’ll look ridiculous and the edges will start to perish very soon. Curbing makes for a neat, finished edge that frames your new drive or patio and shows it off wonderfully.
If you need any domestic groundworks installing on your property in Stretford, either because they need upgrading or you have a new project such as decking or a pond being installed soon, then you need to have a chat with the Ellendale Developments groundworkers. They will discuss the least intrusive and most cost-effective way of completing the work with you, and once you decide to go ahead then the work will be carried out professionally and cleanly.
Footings are an essential part of any large construction project as they literally form the foundation for the build. They are normally made of reinforced concrete poured into a trench and left to set. Once they have set then the new construction will sit on top of the footing and act as a stable and secure base.
Drainage is another important aspect to consider when installing new landscaping. If rainwater has nowhere to go then the new installation could be prone to flooding. Depending on how bad the affected area is will determine what sort of solution is required. Gravel is very good at tackling drainage, but if that isn’t enough then an underground pump system may be required. It’s worth talking to one of our expert groundworks and landscapers in Stretford to see what solution they think is appropriate, and you can do that by calling 01942 316061.
If you have been searching for professional turfing services in Stretford and found that the tradespeople were either too expensive or the firm's reputation isn't the best, then concern yourself no longer! Ellendale Developments professional gardeners and landscapers can fit any kind of turfing, real or artificial. We use only the finest of materials, have years of combined experience, charge competitive prices, but most importantly, our reputation is one of reliability and for a high-quality service.
Artificial grass, or astroturf as it is also known, is an excellent alternative to real turf as it's low maintenance and keeps your garden looking lush all year round. If you love your garden but can't maintain it like you used to be able to, or if the earth in your garden is quite dry and struggles to produce an even lawn, artificial turf may be the answer. Our professional artificial lawn installers in Stretford can help advise, plan and install a new artificial grass fitting project for a lot cheaper than you might think.

Ponds and water features are an amazing way of completely transforming your garden and the groundworks that are required are minimal. Ponds and water features offer the ultimate forms of relaxation; watching fish swim and listening to water gently trickling by while you enjoy the sun with your favourite drink in hand is something everyone can enjoy, and it can be right in your back garden to enjoy whenever you like.
Are you thinking of having decking installed in Stretford but haven’t got a clue where to start? Are you flummoxed by all the different sizes, shapes, colours and extra features that you can add on? Does the thought of decking sound appealing but you think it would be too expensive to install? Ellendale Developments decking installers can take you through the process step by step; what materials you should use, how to get the best out of the space that you have available, how long it would take, and how much it would cost. We guarantee that the quote will be competitive and that you’ll have the best decking installers in Stretford to complete the project. Here’s an idea of the most popular types of material used for decking installations;
Composite decking is made from a mixture of wood and plastic. It is insect, weather and rot- resistant so it typically lasts up to 30 years longer than wooden decking. Your composite decking fitter in Stretford will take you through all the available colours and styles of boards, fencing and post ends to get just the installations that you want.
Wooden decking is still an extremely popular choice. Because it is made from all-natural materials, it sits in harmony with the rest of the garden, whereas composite decking looks more artificial thanks to the plastic element of its composition. Wooden decking fitters can offer advice on the treatment of the wood too so that the installation lasts for as long as possible. Typically, wooden decking installations last for upwards of 15 years with the right protection finish.
