Indian Sandstone Patio and Walkway in Burnley

By their very nature, patios and walkways are designed to endure a fair amount of wear and tear. This is why maintenance is required from time to time if you hope to extend their longevity. However, every surface will eventually come to the end of its lifespan. The team at Stone Made Drives ware recently contacted by a customer in Burnley due to this very same scenario. They wished to upgrade their existing back garden with a new patio and walkway. After a brief consultation and an accurate estimate, the work began. Let’s take a look at what was involved as well as the final result.

How We Prepared for the Project

Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with outdoor landscaping projects is well aware that preparation is the key to success. Thus, we began by removing debris from the garden and levelling the space where the patio/walkway would be located. Without a firm foundation, drainage problems and even subsidence may occur.

The Use of Sandstone: The Benefits

There are several reasons why Stone Made Drives selected Indian sandstone as a paving material for this project. These include:

  • Sandstone is stunningly beautiful.
  • It is resistant to elemental concerns such as changing temperatures and harsh weather conditions.
  • Sandstone can be cut to various sizes.
  • This is a rather porous stone; enhancing drainage benefits.

Each stone was cut to slightly different dimensions; enabling the patio and walkway to exude a unique appeal that is hardly possible with more generic solutions.

Making the Most Out of a Limited Amount of Space

The functional aspects of these paving slabs are complimented by their luxurious appearance. In other words, the entire back garden was transformed from a rather commonplace environment into what can only be called a work of art. The client was extremely pleased with the ultimate result and Stone Made Drives walked away from yet another successful undertaking.

Even small gardens can be accommodated thanks to our industry experience as well as the plethora of solutions that our customers can choose from. Regardless of the size of your property or the task at hand, we are more than happy to help. Contact one of our team members to learn more!
