The old patio area was laid with crazy paving with crumbling stone walls. The space was dull and uninviting. The steps weren't practical and there was a large void near the house which meant some of the space was unusable.
Owning a 500-year-old property in a conservation area meant that Matt and Imogen carried the weight of preserving its beauty and history. They wanted an attractive patio space that the family could enjoy together. The low space near the window needed a solution and the raised part of the garden needed retaining.
