Choosing a site for your mosaic
  • Add interest to large areas of paving

  • Enhance a seating area

  • Define entrances to other parts of your garden

  • Spectacular in areas of your garden that you can view from above

  • Ideally site in a nice open sunny position, away from overhanging trees

Guidelines for site preparation

Joints between blocks are grouted

PEBBLE-03.png

Rebate 8mm

Ground Level

7.5 cm (3 inchs) mosaic block

Approx 3.5cm (1 inch) sand or mortar mix to bed block down

10 to 15cm (4 to 6 inches) compacted hard core base

Average total depth of hole 25cm (10 inches) approx

​The exact size and depth of hole required to install the mosaic sections will be specified for each project.

Pebbles and other materials

I hand sort every pebble for the right, size, colour, shape and suitability. My aim is to make a mosaic that will last.

Pebbles are a natural product and will of course show variation in colour and textures which makes the mosaic more interesting and individual.

I enjoy using a variety of materials such as coloured glass nuggets to create iridescent effects, slate and Cotswold stone to define the elements of a design, and other beautiful exciting coloured minerals such as green malachite to give visual impact.
