An old gravel area plus a section of lawn was used to gain space to create this stunning new patio using Buff blend Indian Sandstone, a Pergola was erected to provide some shade once the customer has selected and planted some climbers to cover the top.
A Pine sleeper retaining wall was built incorporating a set back in step.
Fantastic Couple to work for and enjoyed an ‘afternoon tea in the summerhouse on occasions’ had a few giggles between us along the way making the whole job more delightfull.
Phase 2 of a project in Wimborne, previously a Indian sandstone patio was laid over looking the River Stour to the rear garden, the driveway needed completely re-doing after extensive building work was carried out, i’ll let the pictures do the talking, but this did turn out rather well don’t you think…….
A beautiful out-look over the River Stour deserved a nice new patio to view it from!
After many layers of the dreaded concrete found under the existing tired patio was broke up and removed,new levels were graded to form a decent enlarged base to lay some new Umbra grey sandstone, the result transformed the area for many years to come.
An old wall was pulled over to provide a sub-base material for the parking area, new timber sleepers were erected as a support, this was topped off with a compacted layer of 40mm scalpings and dressed up with 20mm shingle. A new decorative panel was installed for privacy with a side access gate.
An old Gravel area at the rear of the property was transformed into a clean slabbed space suitable for outside entertaining, small slabs where left out and in-filled with Quantock 20mm stone to allow the customer to plant groundcover scented plants.
Old crazy paving removed and a new concrete path laid for better wheelchair access, the old paving will be used in some gabion baskets to the right of the path at a later date for boundary support due to a very deep field ditch on the field side.
Out with the ugly concrete and tired fence, then brought up to date with new block paving complemented with a grey 20mm Quantock stone, a new close board fence replaced the old panels. Lovely customers, thanks for the T’s and cake! Big help from a work colleague on this one.
