Blue Slate Project


A project undertaken in Greystoke, Cumbria to develop a new border, some pathway and a small pond. Blue slate was the main material used.


The project is first outlined on the existing lawn

The location for the pond is also outlined

The turf is then lifted and disposed of

Sub-base is put down where the pathway will be

The pond has also been embedded and filled

The soil where plants will go is turned

The blue slate is spread evenly across the new border

As well as along the pathway

The project is now ready for the client to begin planting

The client had started planting in the new border

And again, one year later
