In these two pictures here a client in Bonnyrigg asked us to do something creative with a tired old brick wall. He would have like a brand new sandstone wall, but the budget was not available for this. What we did was use a cement based stone coloured mortar to form the “stone” pieces you see here.

After the stone effect render had dried, we repointed the stone pieces. After this process we added a wee cost effective coping stone to the top, and finally we had our blacksmith Ian we work with manufacture and fit the railings you see here. The client was delighted with his new “stone” wall.
