Rainbow Sandstone Patio

We worked closely with our client on this project in Cambridge, who had a very specific vision for their project, to create an attractive and low-maintenance outdoor area.

We dug out and removed approximately 50 tonnes of soil and clay from the garden to achieve the correct levels. Concrete footings were then installed for the low wall, seating and retaining wall.

The whole garden was paved using a warm Indian Sandstone (a smooth-sawn rainbow stone) in a random pattern.

Due to water issues in the winter, two drainage systems were installed: the first at sub-level using perforated land drain and gravel trenches – and the second being a series of surface water ACO slot drains. This type of drainage leaves only 10mm visible at surface level, making it a great choice for a more decorative, high-quality finish.
