Groundworks and terrace
Groundworks and Terrace
The brief for this project was to renovate the external area of a stone cottage in Brittany and create a patio and dining area where the clients could sit out and enjoy their garden. The area was located to the back of the house and was in a perfect position to catch the afternoon sun. The patio area that already existed was looking tired and was covered in gravel that had seen better days so the client decided that they would like a paved area that would be easier to maintain.
After an onsite meeting and a few sketches to plan out the area and style of the patio we set to work. To begin with the whole area was cleared of gravel and dug up to create a new solid bedding for the new terrace surface. A bad of sand and cement was then laid in preparation to put down the new stone flags we had sourced on behalf of the client.
The stone flags were sourced from Torchio to the clients specifications.
