Patio in Lexden, Colchester
Our existing customer required a high specification patio with a difference so after much deliberation a recessed patio was specified. The first stage was to excavate forty tons of soil to prepare for the base structure, foundations for the retaining walls were poured and the groundworks for the concealed drainage system were incorporated.
Reinforced retaining walls were built using bricks to match the existing property and the patio sub-base was screeded to create a flat surface ready for tiling.
600 x 600 exterior porcelain tiles were selected and thin grout lines were specified to achieve a contemporary look. Bespoke Portland coping stones were used to complete the project.
