Here we relaid 100 sq m of beautiful Yorkshire stone. Over the decades it had started to look tired, with damaged pointing some loose slabs. The roadway we constructed with the Yorkstone paving could have been lifted from York City centre hundreds of years ago. As well as the main driveway, which needs to take the weight of farm vehicles, we laid paving in front on the garage and created pathways to the door.
The existing gravel parking area was softened with cobble edging and by rounding off the corners. The borders were planted up and finished with a bark mulch. With a practical design philosophy and an economical use of the stone, we had enough stone left over to lay a small but perfectly formed patio in the front garden.
