As well as for paving, stone can be used to construct walling and create a wide range of garden features.
We regularly source sandstone from Yorkshire or Sussex, slate from Wales, granite from Scotland and a wide range of sandstone, limestone, travertine, slate, porphyry and other materials from Europe and Asia. It is important to ensure that any material is fit for the purpose intended. This means considering grip, hardness, porosity and maintenance requirements as well as overall appearance.
Below is shown a small selection of the many stones we have used for walling.
