Free training with the London Stone Landscape Specialist Scheme

Plenty of useful information that gets you up and running in a day. Sounds good?

44 Manor Road

As part of our Landscape Specialist Scheme, we offer free training days, both on the site where you’re working and at our depot near Heathrow. It’s something we initiated immediately we realised how much the extra confidence they give is appreciated.

Onsite training means that, not only do you get the benefit of expert advice and demonstrations of the best way to use GftK pointing and Dry-Treat sealing products, but you learn at the same time as completing a job—so no wasted time, plus the reassurance that you’ll be using the products exactly as intended the first time you try them out. read more

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.

New hard paving options from London Stone

A new season: new possibilities, improving weather, new choices. Which is pretty much what our latest paving options give you (OK, not the weather, but we’re working on that) in slate, sandstone and Yorkstone.

Among our three new sandstones is Camel Dust.  Hand-cut and riven for a more traditional look, it extends our colour range with lighter sandy tones and is an economical choice with it a project-pack mix of four sizes for relaxed paving patterns.

Meanwhile, Desert Sandstone and Golden Sandstone are sawn six sides for a luxury finish and sandblasted and brushed to bring out the distinctive colours and markings, as well as offer the reassurance of good slip-resistance. Their hard-wearing qualities make them easier to clean and widens your choice for overhung, damper areas. read more
