Rhys Blaken from Rhys Blaken Building has kindly shared a recent project using our National Trust Chedworth Terracota Tiles and Honey Cathedral Cobbles to transform a wasteland garden area into a warm and tidy patio space for his customer Lucy.

Lucy contacted me through a recommendation from her parents regarding an unused ("wasteland") area at the rear of their garden. After meeting with Lucy she emphasised how great it would be to install a raised patio in this location so her family of 4 can enjoy the evening sunshine. We discussed a few options regarding the materials, Lucy and her husband opted to go for the National Trust Roman Villa Chedworth Burnt Terracotta Tiles. complemented with hand cut honey catherdral cobble
stone boarder, creating a lovely transition between patio & flower beds. We also installed a large 1.2×1.2m step to create easy access in/out of the garden.
