New garden patio and paths in Manchester on a new build house using Marshall's dark eclipse granite project packs with a Marshall's light granite border and jointed using GFTK vdw 840 plus in a stone grey colour provided by NCC Streetscape



Before the work commenced

Laying the Eclipse granite with 4mm - 5mm joints

Cutting the eclipse granite paving to the border detail

Cutting the granite to size
The smaller 300mm x 300mm units don't fit correctly when spaced out and need 5mm cutting off one edge to keep an equal 4mm - 5mm margin all the way round the flag

Jointing the Marshall's Eclipse Granite Patio

Wet the Eclipse Granite Patio using a hose pipe

Open the GFTK vdw 840 plus sealed container and pour onto the patio in small quantities

Remove any surplus jointing material

Why this Garden Works

Each article is presented by landscape designer, Tracy Rich, who will examine a single garden and provide design tips based on that garden's layout, materials and planting.

Tuinen Mien Ruys

Mien Ruys' own garden in the Netherlands is the ideal place to start a new series on design articles on 'Why this Garden Works'.

Lan Su Chinese Garden

Lan Su is a great example of urban garden design. Its whole purpose is to help people relax and to inspire creativity by connecting with nature, even in the centre of town. 

Hauser & Wirth Garden

The main wow factor of this garden is the large perennial meadow out the back called Oudolf Field after its famous Dutch designer, Piet Oudolf. However, the gallery complex also contains some other very interesting spaces.
