Marshwood, Dorset
Designed by Cleve West

Built using reclaimed York Stone, the surrounding patio area compliments the red brick of the house. We used local Blue Lias walling stone for the dry stone effect of the walls, which both retain the soil behind them, whilst screening the seating area from the elements (without spoiling the spectacular views), and offering a place to leave pockets in the stone for candles when entertaining. Minimalist planting was required for less maintenance, and more space for children and dogs.
