After an initial visit and consultation with our clients, it was decided to unify the level by building a low retaining wall and back-filling. This allowed us to backfill with aggregates to create one full-level concrete platform across the back of the house. The perfect platform on which to set beautiful slate paving.
As part of the plans, we pushed the change of level further out into the garden. This allowed for the design and construction of generous central steps ensuring the transition between levels was both aesthetically pleasing and safe. The steps came with lighting set between two rendered raised beds leading down to the lower lawn level.
