Replacing an old sloping concrete path with three steep crumbling steps with a new paved pathway and six well spaced steps.
We removed the existing crumbling concrete pathway, steps and the retaining walls.
We then dug out and re-profiled the area to allow for a more gradual stepped path as the existing three steps were too steep for the elderly lady to get up easily.
The drainage pipe from the house guttering was broken so we laid a new pipe to take rain water from the downpipe to the street.
We then put a base of 804 stone and compacted the area and a layer of 6mm screeding grit to give a firm and level base for the paving stones. We then plastered the new retaining walls to give a smooth finish. Next we laid the paving and sanded all the joints and compacted the paving. The new six step path made the approach to the house much safer and better looking.
