Our latest project in Banbury called for a complete overhaul of an unsafe timber decking. We created a stylish curved patio design to compliment the existing lawn, with our stunning AWBS sandstone paving stones stealing the show.

The homeowners, Mr & Mrs E, had long sought to replace their rotting timber decking. The surface had become become dangerously slippery, and the stepped design was a potential trip hazard. Rather than replace the old decking with new single-level decking, they intead opted for a stylish patio area.

For the paving slabs, the homeowners chose AWBS coastal mix paving for its excellent value and attractive Indian sandstone look. They also felt that a mixture of different sized slabs would make for a better overall look. Planting areas were another consideration;, with our design featuring two long beds with space for a large plant pot.

To create the single level patio, our landscaping team lowered the patio below the level of the adjacent lawn. We then built a dwarf retaining wall with sandstone walling stones, curved around the edge so as to retain the lawn. Lastly, we installed 12 oak sleepers as raised wooden sleeper beds against the back wall of the house, making for a generous planting lawn.

The end result is a safer, more attractive area for the homeowners to enjoy spending more time outdoors.
