This doorstep flag is the most colourful of all the flags laid at the above property. It creates a very attractive feature in a prominent position, displaying a multitude of warming beige, orange, ochre, and purple sandstone colours.

This driveway is flagged in Indian stone paving. This is a particularly popular material which is compatible with most types of property and can be laid in both rural and urban settings. Its solid, durable, and textured surface allows the parking of vehicles, and the bright colours of the flags provide a warm and welcoming introduction to the property.

These stone steps are constructed utilising six identical Yorkstone slabs bedded upon cement. They are bordered by low stone walls with foundations approximately 300mm underneath the surface of the steps. This provides the client with easy access and, due to the rough surfaces, a minimal risk of slipping. Upon completion of a flagging project, flagged areas may be power cleaned with a domestic jet water, for a small charge. This can emphasise the diversity of colours in the stone.

Gravel driveway which leads up to a stone garage with stone edgings on the left side and Yorkshire stone flags placed at a 70-degree angle on the right-hand side. Initial work involved thorough excavation and drainage. The driveway consists of a solid gravel sub-base with hessian membrane (to deter weeds) and decorative Brockholes pea-gravel surface compacted with a heavy-duty roller.

Stone pillars at the entrance to this property have pyramid cappings formed with hand-carved, random stone. They offer an impressive approach to the property.

This is the left-side pillar in detail. A course of dressed stone forms a base for the capping.

This is a section of boundary wall which connects with pillars.

Each of these flags is laid at a 70-degree angle, with approximately 600mm buried and the area behind being thoroughly concreted. They satisfy both the aesthetic and solid structural requirements of the works.
