Luton Hoo walled garden: Path construction

The client: Luton Hoo Estate, Hertfordshire.

The brief: To lay paths along the original routes suitable for vehicles and machinery whilst remaining in keeping with the garden.

Our solution: To excavate very deep foundations for the paths and then bring them back up to ground level with good cambers. We used top grade granite dust for the surface dressing for a perfect finish.

The result: As you can see from the photographs the paths have a fine finish, in keeping with the formality of the garden and have enhanced the straight lines of the walls. They make a perfect footpath whilst being strong enough to support heavy goods vehicles.
