Summer is on its way so what could be a better time than to have a beautiful new patio or terrace built to enjoy an evening Gin and Tonic after work. Researchers from a Cambridge University-lead team have recently published findings in the Lancet. They found that by enjoying one alcoholic drink a day was linked to having a lower risk of certain heart conditions or stroke. The Cambridge research team found that moderate drinking reduced the risk of several heart conditions more so than not drinking alcohol at all. What better reason to have that patio renewed this summer!

Anyone planning a new garden project would benefit from a visit to The Landscape Yard website or showroom. We have selected some of the following products for you to consider all perfectly suited to the classic materials used in the buildings of the Cambridge area.

Steeped with prestige the Lorento marble paving range is taken from two different types of marble. Lorento paving would enhance the stately feel of any grand house in Cambridge perfect for any patio or extensive terrace this stone has been used since classical times, marble paving is widely regarded as one of the most luxurious stones available. Marble is a very hard crystalline metamorphic form of limestone that has been compressed under extreme high pressure for hundreds of millions of years. The sleek profile of the stone has been enhanced by a gentle tumbling process to give a mellow finish to the paving, with distinctive white mottling and delicate veining that both provide that classic rich aesthetic. Available in two colours Perlino is a mix of attractive cream tones whilst Ivory is coloured in a soft dappled grey. Both types are available in a project pack. Lorento marble bullnose steps are supplied with smoothly rounded front edges in both Ivory and Perlino options, at 1m long.
