Thistles and Butterflies Patio, Gates and Balustrade

A garden gate, patio gates, handrails and balustrade were commissioned by private clients for their newly created patio at their home in Clackmannanshire.

The Thistle theme represents their love of Scotland, the butterflies their love of gardening and we incorporated dragonflies within the design as well as they have developed a wonderful pond system within the garden where the family and grandchildren enjoy watching the dragonflies skimming over the water.

The gates, handrails and balustrade were all hot forged from mild steel at Ratho Byres Forge. On completion, the metalwork was hot dip galvanized. The paint finish was carried out at Ratho Byres Forge, the galvanized metalwork was acid etched, spray painted with primer and two top coats of matt black were applied.
