This project, for a client in Sonning near Reading in Berkshire, was to extend an existing pathway with a patio and to put in another new patio area under a tree. We feathered the ground up to the new patio area under the tree as the ground level was sloping. The limestone slabs had to be chosen to match existing patio slabs. We dug the area out and put in a base of scalpings and then a mix of sharp sand and cement to form a solid bed for the patio. We then laid the slabs on top and added pointing between the slabs.
