New Limestone Patio, Marnhull

Limestone Patio

One way to freshen up a garden is to have a new patio installed. It requires minimal upkeep and looks smart all throughout the year.

See below for an example of a Limestone Patio that we have recently completed for a client in Marnhull, DT10. The natural stone paving has been laid to the garden area, including the steps and featuring a recessed manhole cover to ensure continuity throughout the garden and design and to hide the eyesore that can sometimes be caused. Limestone is a durable, high quality stone that can be used for several different uses.
