In this case the house had been extended and resulted in a sloping garden running down to the back of the house with no patio or seating area.
I suggested setting out a seating area slightly away from the house and raising it a little, as opposed to cutting it into the bank, so that it would flow onto the rest of the lawn.
The soil was heavy clay so around 16 tonnes was removed and taken away before I could do anything else. Next foundations for the retaining walls were cast before bricking up the walls themselves.
The paving used is a natural sandstone which will provide several lifetimes of use and it’s appearance will only improve with age as it wears smooth.
I was really pleased with the result here, and so were the clients, it adds character to the garden and suits this old farmhouse well
