Patios and Terraces

Primary image

A well constructed patio or terrace is a practical and striking enhancement to your garden. We offer options that can meet many different needs. We also specialise in natural stone and have developed our own techniques for ensuring that this valuable material is properly installed.

There are many different needs for installing a patio or terrace; we cover here two main reasons: decorative and utility.


It may be that you’re looking for a space to entertain family or friends, or perhaps you’re looking to create the ideal garden escape.

Your tastes may be traditional, what we like to call more ‘cottagey’ styles, or contemporary with the use of smooth, angular stones such as granite or slate. Whatever your taste, we have the experience and expertise to help you realise your aspirations.

Natural Stone

Our bespoke specification includes the installation of natural stone flagstones on a full mortar bed made with white cement where applicable.

We have developed our own method of grouting to ensure a fantastic finish and a long lasting solid joint to prevent paving from becoming unstable and prevent unwanted weeds.


In addition to enjoying the garden, many of us still need to be able to move our wheelie bins and lawn-mowers around. For those with practical needs, there are some good options.

One such option is pressure cast concrete slabs which work good in shaded areas (featured). They don’t get slippy, moss tends not to grow and water falls off. With sharp, vertical edges, you can fit them very close, and by ‘half-bonding’, they can be made to look more interesting.

Patio Protection

We are approved applicators for 'Stain Proof' sealant manfactured by Dry-Treat. This product is breathable and will protect your new terrace from freeze/thaw damage, staining and efflorescence.

Stain Proof sealant will not change the appearance of your natural stone and it comes with a 15 year guarantee.
