This project won both best large patio transformation and best engineering achievement at the Marshalls Register Awards 2014.

This job consisted of the lifting an old tired driveway & widening by 1 m. Laying a two colour Marshalls Tegula driveway including jumper blocks. Leading to a pathway using Marshalls Sawn Sandstone paving with bullnose step.
This project involved a full makeover of the poorly constructed original rear garden. We made a larger lower paved area as the original design made you feel like the garden was almost on top of you as you exited the rear door. The upper level was created with a small patio for the sun and a artificial turf lawn. The walling was constructed using Marshalls Tegula with a planter incorporated to give a softer look as the upper level was 2 meters high. Wrought ironwork was added to the upper wall at a later date to create a safer environment for the children to play.
This project involved the removal of the original tarmac drive and flagged pathways we laid a circular design Marshalls Argent block driveway with contrasting edge with a curved pathway leading to the front door. A pathway leading to the rear of the property was constructed in black limestone paving and a new Rolawn turf lawn was laid.
This project was a redesign of the rear garden but had to reflect the design of the newly installed kitchen as when the bi-fold doors were opened they wished to create one large entertaining space. The use of exterior porcelain tiles were used to match the kitchen floor and were also laid at the same level to create a seamless, flowing look. A Trex composite deck was installed with a contrasting edge to give a softer and warmer feel around the hot tub. The job was finished with a circular lawn and planting.
