23 Apr The one about the New Forest and 8,000 paving blocks
Our lovely clients The Burville’s asked us to go and view a project in the New Forest, belonging to a family member.
A very beautiful old Forestry dwelling awaited us. Beautiful on the inside – but in the need for a radical makeover on the outside.
Set in two acres of pretty garden and located near the historic landmark, The Bench, the existing paving needed a major over overhaul.
A design spec and final brief was agreed upon with our client at a meeting back on Dartmoor and work started at the beginning of March.
Alongside our lovely labourer Paul, the project took around 4 weeks from start to finish.
Specialist paving is very labour-intensive. Needs precision, tirelessness and sheer sweat.
8,000 paving stones later and we have to admit we’re rather proud of what we’ve helped to create. One very grand, very smart garden.
