Indian Stone Court Yard Matlock

Indian Stone was used to transform a dilapidated back yard to create a lovely, clean and bright patio area.  Aco drains were incorporated to take any surface rain water away.  Once the old concrete was removed, levels were made up with well compacted road stone.  The surface was prepared before the Indian stone was laid onto a mortar screed.  The joints were then pointed with a non cracking material.

See the before and after completion images of this revitalised Indian Stone Court Yard Matlock…….another challenging project for Alan Bailey Groundworks and another very Happy Customer!

Indian Stone Snelston Ashbourne

Indian sandstone has become increasingly popular in the UK in recent years as a domestic patio or driveway product. Due to its strength and versatility coupled with its natural beauty, it is often the chosen product with many homeowners to produce functional yet stylish spaces for family and social use.

Here we show how a space can be totally transformed using Indian Stone Paving

The Existing Courtyard – old concrete

 

The existing concrete was removed and the site was brought up to level with road stone.

Indian Stone Ashbourne

The Indian Stone was laid on a bed of washed sand and cement mix. Once the slabs have been laid the complete area is pointed with Geofix. This picture shows the slabs after rainfall which enhances their natural beautiful colours.

An Aco drain was installed to take away the surface water

 

Newly Developed Retail Units – Block Paving – Sudbury

Alan Bailey Groundworks Ltd has redeveloped this courtyard to create pedestrian areas in front of the newly developed retail units. The materials used, including block paving, have been chosen to complement the original estate yard workshops.

Golconda gravel        Brindle Clay Paving

Golconda self binding gravel complements the old brick buildings and ‘locks’ together to give a firmer but natural finish. Self Binding Gravel is widely used around stately homes, heritage properties and woodland paths due to the relatively hard wearing properties the product benefits from.

The block paving used here is ‘Brindle Clay Paving’ and ‘Charcoal Clay Paving’
