With the fabulous new pergola built, more pattern-paved concrete was the next step.
The sleeper retained beds were extended by adding a row of curved bluestones to create a pleasing and lasting effect. It’s always a good idea to make a path as wide as you can, along which two people can easily walk side by side.
The base colour concrete was laid, and then powders of different colours were spread across it to make a nice mix. Marigold was one of the powders used, while continuing the burgundy theme. Then the concrete was pressed into the pattern of paving, creating a great look with an easy-care finish.
The gumboots look hysterical, but at least they provide protection from the wet concrete.
Finally, the royal cat seal of approval is a fitting finish.
