Patio, ‘Sahara’ sandstone, Bath


Delightful terraced property overlooking Bath. Rear garden a little dreary and in need of brightening up and thereby made into a more usable space. Very wisely the owner chose to have installed some beautiful Indian sandstone slabs.

A word from the client:

"Laying a Patio on existing concrete base".

"I took Mark on to prepare and lay a natural stone patio for me, build a small wall and a step. Mark was fantastic from start to finish. Really helpful in the planning stages, helping to figure out how to overcome a few challenges with uneven levels, a replacement drain cover and advice on materials. Such a breath of fresh air after having a few experiences with other tradesmen where levels of communication have been poor or non-existent!

He is a very helpful, trustworthy and friendly guy and I found his pricing to be very fair, especially considering his attention to detail and quality of his work. He works really hard (even when it was 30+ degrees and tough going!). He set expectations well and kept me informed as to how the job was going, which was important as we had agreed the work at a day rate.

We now are left with a lovely new level, raised patio in place of the old ugly uneven slab of concrete, which is the first stage of revamping our garden. I would hire him again without a hesitation - in fact I really hope to very soon to help with the rest of it!"
