The existing driveway made up of  poured concrete was removed. It was a drab and dated driveway in need of an update.

Lakeside Landscaping reworked the existing driveway into a stunningly fully paved area.

Existing Driveway

A simple concrete driveway with a small area of grass …
Our client wanted to improve the front of the house by replacing the existing area of concrete.

We also removed the drive gates and supplied custom made iron gates

During the Redesign

We completely removed the existing driveway.

We then began the extensive work of laying out the new design. This included a new sub base,screed and sand level needed for an accurate water level.

At Lakeside Landscaping we have an extensive array of machinery for every shape of garden. We endeavor to be as noninvasive as possible on all our projects

Completed Design by Lakeside Landscaping

By altering the direction of the stone we created sections of pathways along the outer edge of the drive.

The Stones create a bright uplifting area that could not be achieved with the old concrete drive

Although this back garden was extensively paved the owners were tired of the existing paving design. It was a run down area with a color scheme that did not complement the house or surrounding garden.

The owners of the garden called on the professional paving services of Lakeside Landscaping.

Existing Patio Before Rework

The existing Patio had little design or flow. It served a propose but wasn’t very inspiring.The owners needed a revamp that would be easily maintained but yet suit the site conditions.

A Patio can be the most important functional aspect of your outdoor living area.

During the Redesign

We completely removed the existing patio including the base. We used a new membrane underneath to guarantee no weed growth

We then began the extensive work of laying out the new design piece by piece. This included a new sub base,screed and sand level needed for an accurate water level.

The completed design by Lakeside Landscaping subtlety yet effectively transforms the back garden.
By creating flowing oval sections the garden and patio area blend seamlessly into one.

Virtually maintenance free this back garden is transformed into a courtyard with a vast array of large planted areas that provide plenty of seasonal interest set on the natural stone paving.

Through our Landscaping division we can offer a professional stone masonry service dedicated to achieving a high level of craftsmanship and completing projects to individual specification.

The service includes the initial consultation and design through to the building stage, with customer satisfaction being imperative throughout.

Extensive Planting

Lakeside Landscaping undertook this extensive design project to completely reform the existing driveway and garden areas. By creating different levels of planting and pathways and seating areas – the space was transformed.
The pathways consist of natural pea gravel bordered with limestone kerbing which provides a maintenance free solution to your walkways.

Sheltered Patio Area

On this exposed site finding a sheltered area was never easy. The design team at Lakeside Landscaping developed a series of semi-circular walled and paved patio areas. Using Donegal granite stone for the walls and McMonagle limestone setts we created a stylish and contemporary patio area.


The oval contains a custom made limestone seating area. With raised beds at the back of the wall we ensured the new patio blended in with the remainder of the garden.

Extensive planting

Varying levels of raised beds thought the site provided both visual coverage and shelter from the prevailing wind. We used railway sleepers to contain the beds which adds character to an otherwise plain border.

Extended Photo Gallery

This south facing front garden was an under utilised space. Our client wanted to replace the grass with a patio area.
Although it is a compact front garden Lakeside Landscaping designed a mixture of flowing pathways, planting areas and lawn which is not too cluttered and compliments the house as a whole.

We used bright Donegal stone quarts setts which complement the colours of the shrubs and lawn adding an extra element which could not be achieved with different stone
