In this gently sloping garden in Hampshire, Simon specified Traditional DesignBoard for the raised deck, Schellevis XL Concrete paving (in Anthracite) for the chunky overlapping steps leading up to the deck, and Jura Grey Limestone for the stepping stones across the lawn, leading from the main terrace which is also laid in the same stone. The three products complement each other tonally to create a harmonious result.

“We chose DesignBoard for the composite deck as it has a contemporary look but the slightly washed-out neutral colour allows it to blend comfortably alongside a range of other materials, as well as looking elegantly aged.” says Simon.

“For the steps leading up to the deck we wanted to use something with big impact and the Schellevis XL paving was the perfect solution. Jura Grey Limestone was specified for the paving,. The sawn sides of the stone lends itself to contemporary schemes and it’s a durable and hard-wearing product. The inclusions in the stone as well as the odd fossil give it bags of character too.”
