Technical information

One of the Code for Sustainable Homes requirements is to have an ecology report undertaken. This looks at different aspects of the garden such as contamination of land, the boundary line and wildlife. Producing an ecology report will be beneficial as you can gain more points within the Code for Sustainable Homes Assessment.

Land outside the boundary line should nott be included in the landscaping or ecology report.

There is a choice between standard or premier turf. Standard will stand up to the wear and tear of family life and premier is more for lawn lovers with no children or pets.

Hints & Tips

Ensure the space provided for cycle storage reflects the number of bedrooms in the house – so if 4 bedroom provide facilities for at least 4 bikes.
