Patio installation in Chelmsford, Essex
We are very close to the completion of a very nice patio installation in Chelmsford, Essex. The patio is laid with ‘platinum’ grey Indian sandstone slabs. This has then been finished with a grey pointing.
The patio itself has been laid in a brick bond style, which is a very modern look when combined with the sharp edges of the honed top and side slabs. A nice alternative to the more traditional patio packs where there are 4 different sized slabs.
As with all of our installations there is a minimum of 100mm of MOT grade type one installed prior to the slabs being laid on 50mm of concrete. This is on a full ‘bed’ and not dot and dab.
With this installation there was also a rendered block work wall built to act as a retainer for the high planters. This was required as originally the garden was on a slope and over 50 tonnes of material was removed to make it flat.
A drainage line has been installed around the patio, which feeds in to the existing grey water drain system. All parts of the patio slope very gently away from the house.
