We have recently made a couple of improvements to the front of the house. We had a new path put down to replace the gravel, the gravel was a real nuisance to keep tidy and many guests have suitcases with wheels on, so was a struggle at times. The new path is made from pattern imprinted concrete and I am very pleased with the results. It was laid by a local company called Denwell Driveways and has not been damaged at all by the severe frosts we have had. I also decided to get an arbour, not that many guests have the time to sit outside, but available if wanted for that morning coffee or cigarette! I now have to decide what colour to paint it.
