Garden Paving and Raised Planter

Garden Paving & Raised Planter, Aberargie

This paving project took place in the large country garden of a red sandstone steading in Aberargie.

Garden patio and house entrance

Consultation & Concept

The existing garden was mainly laid to grass with a simple gravel path leading to the front door.

The clients wanted us to create a paved area at the front of the property not only to provide a seating and entertaining area but a smart new entrance to the property.

Grey sandstone slabs were chosen for practicality and to complement the style of the property.

Garden Features

A large curved patio area was constructed, extending along the front of the property to the front door using grey sandstone slabs.

Grey tegula blocks were inset in the paving to define the pathway to the front door and also used to edge the paving and border.

A smart new door step was constructed and edged with grey tegula kerbs.

A large raised planter was constructed, faced with grey guillotined stone walling and finished with grey sandstone copings.

Completed Garden Project

The materials chosen – grey sandstone and natural stone, complement the red sandstone steading and its countryside location perfectly.

The sweeping curved paving provides a stunning new entrance to the property and a large area for relaxing and entertaining.

The attractive raised planter adds height and can be planted up for interest throughout the year.

Well chosen planters and accessories added by the clients provide the finishing touches.
