When it comes to creating a new layout for a Cottage Garden, hard-scaping may not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, using simplistic designs to incorporate York Stone paving into a terrace, patio or pathway, creates the beauty and illusion of antiquity which is associated with a garden of this nature.
New Riven York Stone Paving
New Riven York Stone is a perfect marriage between hard-scaping and soft, colourful planting. The gentle riven surface catches the light, creating movement within the stone. This look improves the weathering and age of the stone. New Riven York Stone with a fettled edge is made in the traditional way. It has remained the same for centuries because it’s something even modern technology or imported stone cannot achieve. Skilled craftsmen gently chisel the edges of the stone to give it a fettled finish. This is slow back-breaking work but the end result is a perfectly riven flag.
