We needed to add interest to a tired old patio and by building a patio of Indian sandstone on 3 ever increasing squares certainly gives the area a contemporary feel. This main patio was complemented by a smaller patio with a pergola stretching across it.
Client wanted new patios created to replace a worn old patio. Everything had to be pulled up and new bases put in and then over 150 square metres of patio laid down. Paths and steps were built and the effect is extremely effective.
Before we started work this house had a dark square patio with a pond. We created shape by adding a curved patio with a rockery waterfall cascading into the pond. We used a lighter shade of Indian Sandstone and created a wall which held in a new area of lawn.
We replaced a York stone crazy paving patio with York stone slabs and rebuilt the York stone walls. We also built a York stone circular planter.
Sloping garden so area had to be dug out with soil being taken away. French Oak sleepers were used to retain the soil and create steps.Sandstone is used as the hard surface. A house with a small seating area by the house was transformed by cutting into the bank and creating a large entertaining area.
