Case Study Four
Bespoke Indian Stone Paving
We were asked to create a design for a front garden in Tunbridge Wells. The client wanted a low-maintenance area, but it needed to be individual, incorporate some planting areas and add kerb appeal.
The design was presented and met with approval!
Work commenced, we started by excavating the existing topsoil and installing a sub-base of thoroughly compacted DTp1 (essential for all paving).
Next, we set out the pattern of interlinking circles. This was an adaptation of the traditional ‘fan’ or ‘Bogen’ patterns commonly seen in paving around Europe.
Once the team were happy that the measurements were correct and the levels and falls accurate, the setts started to go down.
We had the added challenge of an inspection chamber cover, which threatened to disrupt the pattern of the natural stone setts. The existing I/C cover was replaced for a recessed cover, which allowed the paving pattern to continue un-disturbed.
The paving was then pointed, and decorative aggregate spread over the remaining areas. Three new plant pots then took pride of place on the three paved circles!
