These clients were semi retired and looking for a larger patio area. Four local companies had been to see the job but were not prepared to take it on due restricted access. We took on the work which consisted of removing 30 tons of clay by hand up and down 16 flights of stairs into skips. All materials had also to be brought in the same way. We constructed a new retaining wall, installed drainage, erected galvanised railings and relaid a new patio.
