    I've been meaning to do this for awhile...I think Marcus asked. Anyway, these were demanding clients and they got pretty much exactly what they asked for..not my style really but the customer gets as they wish. Unbeknownst (sp) to me two guys had already been around to quote and had been sent packing after they tried to tell the client how it "should" be done.

    The clients were building their dream home and were pretty much at the end of their tether with tradesmen. I think they were just happy we turned up when we said we would.

    Anyway sling mud as ya see fit. Sorry its a bit long but a picture says a thousand:D

    Thank you for the comments.

    SFL - apart from sand we have sand or alternatively sand. Just to make life interesting it generally has limestone underneath it.

    The design was the mainly the lady of the house. She was very specific. Working out some of the detail of how to acheive it was a bit of a job but mostly straight forward. For the technical minded the lower curved section should have been on a larger radius but there wasn't the room. Additionally drainage pipework and tanks in the front prevented us from playing with the heights. They were happy.
