In picturesque Wiltshire countryside, Bill and Ann live in a brick built house. Backing onto open fields they have dogs, horses and alpaca’s.
Overlooked by beautiful mature trees the back garden consisted mostly of lawn and shrubs and is on a steep incline so hard to utilise.
At the front of the house the driveway leads onto the main road through the village. The driveway was previously laid to scalping which kept gravitating out into the road and constantly had to be pushed back up onto the drive.
Early in 2014, Bill and Ann embarked on a major project to solve both of these issues. The project involved digging into the back garden creating levels to make it more useable, they also had to resurface the front drive to address the problem of migrating stones and repair the damage that the heavy digging machinery would invariably cause.
Our clients researched possible paving types for their back garden and front drive. Their priorities were that the surface had to be permeable, have no loose stone, come from a local company and be suitable for all areas that required surfacing.
In the back garden, the areas to be surfaced were already defined, but the front drive was a blank canvas. Bill and his builder, Daniel Stone from Westbury based MRM Property Services, sat down to come up with a design that would be functional and also look good.
