Stunning weathered sandstone was used to create this 60m path and 20m² patio. The patio makes the most of the space created by the new orangery and catches the sun all afternoon. The path has been lined with lavender and the borders are packed with summer colour.
A year later at the other side of the house, we removed the driveway to the front door and laid a pedestrian path instead. The aim was to allow more light into the sitting room and to make more of the view to the lake. Countless loads of rubble were disposed of and 75 tonnes of fresh top soil bought in before laying 220 sq m of quality turf.
