This project was a departure from the usual as it involved working with mortared stone rather than dry stone walling.
The job initially required 60-odd metres of low walls with a big, heavy flat cap stones plus a set of steps. The caps were to be pointed with lime mortar. As the job progressed the client asked if I could also do some paving and put in two paths of big red sandstone slabs. I quite like jobs that evolve over time.
The overall design was for curves – lots of them! I think we achieved that!
The red bowscar sand stone was supplied by Cumbria Quarrying Services.
And some great feedback from the client:
“Jason was professional from the outset.
At all stages of his work he explained and signposted me as to what he was doing and continually checked that I was happy with his work. He also checked I was comfortable with his ideas,involved me in any changes needed, took on board my own suggestions, amendments, and additional work without a fuss. When I say his work, I should say his art as his talent has transformed my garden and houses landscape beyond my expectations and wowed everyone who has seen my garden since.
I would commend his work and 100% recommend him.”
