Lines of Contrast with Porcelain Paving

One thing we really appreciate at London Stone is the creativity of the designers we work with, and as the practical advantages of Porcelain Paving become increasingly recognised, we’re wowed by the designs being created with this versatile material. This week we’ve picked out a couple a lovely projects which show how contrasting colour adds an extra dimension to garden design.

How the London Stone Welcome Pack helps sell your garden design

It all started in 2011 – a simple idea for making life easier for designers and landscapers. Why not, we thought, provide a sample box of all our stone products?

When we chatted to Jane Shankster of Arthur Road Landscapes, Wimbledon, at Futurescape this year, she told us:

“It’s very useful for taking to clients. It’s heavy, but I keep it in the van. Clients like to be able to see and touch and compare stones side by side.”

Which, of course, is exactly why we created it.

About to enter its seventh year, the sample box has grown a lot since the early days and now forms part of our new Welcome Pack. Free to everyone who joins our Landscape Specialist Scheme, the pack includes the sample box of all our Natural Stone and Porcelain, plus samples of all our Millboard composite decking and Ardex pointing. read more
