Limestone Cottage

Home / Limestone Cottage

An idyllic stone cottage with a modern extension already had some attractive, dry-stone landscaping surrounding it but the client wanted to extend the use of natural limestone slabs to include paving all the way around the house. They had a one year-old daughter and the existing granite chippings were not very child-friendly.  We relocated the granite chippings onto the driveway and constructed a dark limestone patio with paths that were sympathetic to the existing landscaping whilst always being mindful of drainage and keeping water away from the house.  An old stone log store was also starting to feel it's age so a rendered concrete bench was built to support it's walls and provide an outdoor seating area.
