Sometimes, a garden design calls for something really special to make a statement.
There are literally hundreds of products available to create a particular mood or atmosphere in your garden or outdoor living area. Right now, nothing is more popular than sandstone.
And why not?
When you buy a piece of sandstone, you are guaranteed to get something absolutely unique because no two pieces of sandstone are the same.
Sandstone is a sedimentary rock composed mostly of sand sized minerals or rock grains.
Most sandstone is made up of quartz or feldspar, because these are the most common minerals in the Earth's crust. Like sand, sandstone may be any colour, but the most common colours are tan, brown, yellow, red, grey, pink, white and black.
This exciting range of colours is what makes sandstone such an attractive addition to garden and outdoor styling.
Sandstone is formed over millions of years, under immense pressure. As such, it is extremely hard wearing and has been a popular building material for centuries, from the Egyptians to modern day architects and designers.
We are extremely excited to have such a large range of sandstone products available to us. From statement pieces like sculptures, outdoor settings and mailboxes to pavers and retaining wall blocks.
If we don't have what you are looking for on site, we can order it specially for you.

Water runoff is rain that does not soak into the ground where it falls. It is most concerning if the water is pooling around the foundations of your buildings, as it can cause serious structural damage over time. There are a few simple things you can do to reduce water runoff on your property, using mulch, pavers and gravel.
Don't let the rain put you off tidying up your garden. In fact, rainy weather is the best weather in which to weed and mulch. This is a little case study of a customer's weekend gardening project, and shows how much you can achieve in a day with the right products.
