Paving and cobbled areas
This garden was designed by Wendy Cartwright whose inspiring design made use of locally quarried Hamstone in a variety of ways. Areas of rough coursed cobbles contrast neatly with larger areas of sawn paving slabs. Low walls of random stone link with shot blasted kerbs on the second level. The design pivots around a flight of reclaimed steps made from hamstone with enormous Blue Lias treads. Newly carved ball finials complete the piece. Two heavy green oak arches add an elegant vertical dimension complimented by box cones and formal box hedges. Hamstone is a lovely stone to work with, it is soft and easily carved, with a warm golden colour.
