Garden design, patio, paths & landscaping by Stow Construction & Landscaping in Oxton near Lauder, Scottish Borders 2018 using Marshalls Fairstone Riven Harena Autumn Bronze, Marshalls Tegula Drivesett Harvest, Weatherpoint Buff 365

2018: Regional Award Winner

Most creative use of Marshalls product

This is called the “Cut Flower Garden” and it is designed around a central vase created out of slate. Working closely with the client, we assisted with the design and layout of the project. The colours of the flowers are planted to replicate a rainbow colour wheel. The Fairstone paving in Autumn Bronze harmonises beautifully with the Borders countryside and drystone walling. A great deal of time and care was taken over the cutting of the Fairstone Harena to create the perfect circles, this involved mitring the paving to exact measurements. Tegula Drivesett Harvest was used to provide the decorative edging to all the paths. Near Lauder, Scottish Borders
