Fencing, Paving, Decking and Walls

Whatever hard-landscape works Diversity undertake, we take extra care to construct to high standards. Combining our ‘Belt & Braces’ ethos with hard graft, specialist equipment, and nerdy attention to detail, the result is our works being built to look great and last extremely well.

Paving; we specialise in using natural, composite and reclaimed stone products to form fantastic areas & surfaces. Whether it’s a rear garden terrace, path, patio, or front-drive, we combine carefully selected materials and solid building techniques. In doing so, we take care to construct areas & levels that merge in effortlessly with the property & surrounding landscapes. We are well rehearsed in cutting & laying different patterns (such as bespoke, random, or paving-kits) to suit the designer or the client’s preference.

Fencing; we think our fences are not built to the average standard – we think you will notice the difference. Not only are our fences solidly built; they are designed to suit the garden and fixed with keen attention to detail. Whether fixing a perimeter using standard pre-made 6ft-wide panels, or bespoke 2-3m Close-Board bays, or erecting bespoke structures such as a horizontal-batten screen; the same principles apply, fix strong posts into deep concrete footings, use discrete but secure fixings, and align carefully. This all adds up to a really good looking and sturdy fence.

DeckingOver the years, we have designed and installed scores of fantastic decks & various timber structures – leaving us very well placed to advise & install to fit one to your requirements.

Subframes; The sub-frame below a deck is pretty much the same for all types of deck-build. Whatever the situation, we use our ‘belt and braces’ ethos to ensure it’s very sturdy and has serious longevity.


With regards to the actual deck-board material, there are two options:

Timber Decks; If natural timber materials are preferred there are a range of material options, from budget choices such as FSC Softwood such as ‘Larch’ or ‘Pine’, to more high-end finishes such as the resilient-softwood ‘Western Red Cedar’, to Hardwoods such as ‘Ipe’.
Composite Decks; Although natural timbers retain a certain charm, the maintenance & aftercare involved can become a significant problem – especially if the deck area gets little or too much Sun. Of course, timber also rots. If any of these concerns apply then a composite deck material can be a great option. After thorough research into composite options, we found and have extensively used various fantastic materials by ‘Millboard’. In particular, we have found that their ‘Enhanced Grain’ range proves to be a fantastic and realistic replacement for timber boards.

Timber Structures; With our strong carpentry experience and skills we can install pretty much any timber structure, whether bespoke or pre-fabricated. This includes Arbors, Pergolas, Overhead Beams, Sheds, Outbuildings, Screening Solutions….the list is extensive.


Walls; ClearlyBrick & Block work, especially when used to create or retain levels, has to be done right. From the concrete footings up to the top-course, our walls are designed and built to both be fit for purpose and to look the part. Whether it’s a London-Stock brick wall, built to merge in with existing brickwork, new brickwork, or creating a more modern finish with a rendered concrete-block wall, we install all of our walls to high specifications. Where budgets are restrictive, creative use of Timber-Sleepers can also define and retain levels effectively.
