  • Help! I hate my garden.

    Posted on November 10, 2009 by Simply Paving

    The 7th October '09, products supplied by Simply Paving (Bradstone Highland Pebbles) were featured on ITV’s This Morning feature “Help! I hate my garden”.

    Simply Paving can supply a wide range of decorative stones, cobbles, pebbles and rockery stones which include colours and materials indigenous to specific regions which will suit all types of locations and gardens. Bradstone’s Highland Pebbles are an ideal accompaniment to water features as they are fish friendly, yet they also create added interest in large paved areas.

    In this episode of “Help! I hate my garden” Sven Wombwell meets a couple and their three young children, who were half way through major renovations to their family home, when problems with their builders left work at a standstill and the garden as a building site. Sven and his team re-vamped the garden and transformed it into an extension of the living space, but more importantly, a safe area for the children to play. Bradstone’s Highland Pebbles were used to create a feature area, bringing texture and designer style to the garden.

    Images will soon be featured in our online gallery, alongside hundreds of other customer photos. If you missed the episode, you can see the clip again on ITV's This Morning website.

  • Here's one I made earlier...

    Posted on November 9, 2009 by Simply Paving

    Early March '09
    Q: "Hi, I'd like some advice please; is the StoneFlair Yorkvale range suitable for a pathway?" A: "Yes, it should be perfectly fine, where are you looking to use the product?" Q: "Well, we'd be laying it as a pathway leading up to the pond... in the Blue Peter garden."

    It took a moment for it to click, we were being asked to supply product to the most famous garden in the country. A garden that many of us will have seen on TV since very early childhood. A garden originally designed by Percy Thrower and unveiled by Peter Purves, John Noakes and Lesley Judd. The final resting place of George the Tortoise. What an honour.

    Needless to say, the order was placed and within twenty-four hours, the product was collected from StoneFlair and delivered to BBC Television Centre. Result, the Blue Peter stickers arrived in the post no more than a week later!

    So, the next time you catch Blue Peter or for that matter, the weather forecast on Breakfast News, keep your eye out for the Yorkvale Autumn Brown pathway.
