Tony's Flood Defence Wall
The picture above is the one Referred to below,
The wall was built using lime mortar, and with stone that was found buried in the back garden when we landscaped it a year or so before, it took that long for South Hams to agree to it, in the meantime the cottage was extremely prone to flooding. What is wrong with these bureaucrats

We never throw stone away as it always comes in very handy, especially stone indigenous to the area.

A garden wall was extended at the front of a listed cottage in Wembury to act as a flood defence. The work was done speedily and professionally and the finished product is exemplary. It fits perfectly with the existing frontage and the finished product is a vast improvement on what was there before.

The Pictures above are for a property in Vapron Road Plymouth
carried out around 2006 This was an interesting job For Margaret B Using French Oak Sleepers for the raised beds, with granite setts forming a mowing strip. The front apron and driveway was finished with Granite Setts from the Local Granite King, Dennis Perry, Locally sourced they originated from Cornwall and have a much warmer finish than the Granite from China, which seems be a silver grey colour, whereas the Portuguese granite is a pleasing blue grey colour

The beauty of this process is that it helps you to see what the finished work will look like before any real money is committed.

This has to be a win win situation
