  • And the winner is...

    Posted on February 3, 2015 by Simply Paving

    Another year and another host of fantastic entries to our photo competition. Here in the Simply Paving office, we're always astounded to see what can be achieved with the products that we have supplied and again, the standard of the entries that we have received has been incredibly high and the level of workmanship on show is superb.

    It certainly wasn't easy narrowing down the entries and choosing just one winner and because of this we have chosen one outright winner who will receive a cheque for £500, second and third place entries who will receive a cheque for £200 each and then eight runners-up who will each receive a cheque for £100.

    From everyone in the Simply Paving team, we'd like to thank all who entered the competition and we're certain that the images will provide a great deal of inspiration for our future customers.

    The only thing to do now is reveal the results...

    Our first prize winner and the much deserved recipient of a cheque for £500 is Mr Andrew Shaw of Essex with this superb example of how the clean lines, dark shades and riven profile of the Bradstone Natural Slate Paving in Blue-Black harmonise perfectly to produce a finish that would be at home in either a traditional or contemporary garden.

    The contrast between the dark paving and the light brick works perfectly and the high standard of workmanship is clear to see.

    Congratulations, this is a patio to be very proud of!

    And now for the second and third place runners-up, who will each receive a cheque for £200. We're sure that you'll agree that these projects are deserving of their prize.

    Mr Douglas Crisp of Wiltshire has used Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving in Rainbow to create the perfect outdoor space for relaxing with family and friends. We can just imagine a summer afternoon sat here, perhaps even with a bottle of wine or two!

    Miss Joyce Ward of Northamptonshire has made wonderful use of the different features available in the Bradstone Natural Sandstone Paving Sunset Buff range including a Patio Pack and a 2 Ring Circle which have both been edged with Setts. The whole look of the paved area is perfectly complemented by the planted borders of grasses and ferns.

    Our eight deserving runners-up, each receiving a cheque for £100, are as follows:

    Mrs Pamela Matthews of Kent will no doubt be looking forward to spring and summer this year to make the most of this sunny outdoor space. Combining both Bradstone Natural Sandstone Paving in Fossil Buff and the matching walling, Mrs Matthews has created a stunning patio with seating areas on two levels.

    Our next entry is a beautiful example of a more traditional garden, combining a paved patio area of Bradstone Weathered Riven Paving Autumn Cotswold with a lawn and flower beds. We're sure you'll agree that the photograph sent in by Mrs Natalie McLagan of Guernsey shows a superb level of workmanship with the paving cut to give elegant curves.

    Mr Stuart Williams of Inverness has used Bradstone Monksbridge Block Paving in Croft to create this large, sweeping entrance. This distinctive block paving is ideal if you're looking to give your driveway a predominantly traditional and rustic feel.

    Here, Mrs Fiona Trevett from Dorset demonstrates how using a combination of materials can produce a very effective modern look. The clean lines of the Bradstone Natural Limestone Paving Blue-Black in the single size of 600x600 work perfectly with the wooden decking and red brick walling to create a superb contemporary space.

    Bradstone Natural Limestone Paving Blue-Black

    Our next entry shows how the mixed sizes of Bradstone's Ashbourne Paving in Cotswold can be used to create interest in a long aspect London garden. Mrs Anna Chowdhury has created an outdoor space that looks like the perfect place to while away those long summer evenings.

    Mr Nick Millward of Warwickshire totally transformed his townhouse garden using Bradstone's Carpet Stones in Rustic Red. The colour of the cobble works beautifully with the existing brick walling as well as the wooden sleepers used for the raised beds. Keep your eye out on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/simplypaving) as we will be posting before and after images to show just what a dramatic transformation has been undertaken.

    Here, Mr Richard Hobson of Kent has created a lovely patio area using Bradstone's Natural Sandstone Paving in Cragside. This particular stone is quite unique in that is has an aged appearance even though it has been newly quarried and it perfectly complements the existing natural stone walling.

    Last but by no means least, we have an entry that made us all here in the Simply Paving office incredibly envious. Without doubt, this entry from Mr James Brewer is one of the most stunning settings that we have ever seen our products used in. And what's more, as the product has been laid in Malaga, Spain, there will be no shortage of sunny days to sit and enjoy the view by the pool. Oh, and if you were wondering, the product is Bradstone's Gironde Paving and we're sure you'll agree that it works perfectly in these surroundings.

    Wow!

    Every year that we run our photo competition we are absolutely astounded by the incredibly high standard of entries that we receive. This year has been no different. The only problem that this brings is the nigh on impossible task that we have here at Simply Paving of choosing a winner!

    It's taken a great deal of thought to narrow down the entries to just one outright winner and ten runners-up and we've been very careful to take into account all aspects of each entry, from design of the project, right through to the level of workmanship on display.

    We'd like to thank everyone who entered the competition and we're sure that the images that have been sent in will provide future customers with bucket loads of inspiration!

    All that's left for us to do is to reveal the results...

    Our first prize winner and the deserved recipient of a cheque for £500 are Ms Barbara Fawcett and Mr Joe Green of Cumbria with this truly awe inspiring entry, which pictures the StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Rainbow.

    Here in the Simply Paving office, we were all so in awe of how breathtakingly beautiful this seating area is and my word, what a view! The high level of workmanship on show has really put the finishing touch to an already enviable outdoor space and we would like to offer our sincere thanks for sharing this picture with us.

    StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Rainbow

    And now for the runners-up, who will each receive a cheque for £100. We're sure that you'll agree that all the projects are deserving of their prize.

    Mrs Maria Joliffe from Hampshire has used Bradstone Woburn Rumbled Block Paving Autumn wonderfully to create this outdoor space, showing that block paving isn't necessarily just for driveways. It certainly looks like someone has been enjoying their new playground!

    Bradstone Woburn Rumbled Block Paving Autumn

    Here, Mr Chris Hearn from Kent has produced a stunning patio area using Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Vijaya Gold, which works perfectly in contrast with the buff brick walling. We were all in agreement that this looks a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxed summers day.

    Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Vijaya Gold

    Ms Judy Cowan designed and created this outdoor space for her 93 year old mother using StoneFlair by Bradstone Old Town Paving Grey-Green 900x600's and a StoneFlair by Bradstone Old Town Paving Grey-Green 2 Ring Circle. We're sure that you'll agree that the combination of the paving and the decorative aggregates make this beautiful and also ideal as a low maintenance garden.

    StoneFlair by Bradstone Old Town Paving Grey-Green 900x600

    This entry from Mr Patrick Allen from Devon has shown that functional can be beautiful. Using Bradstone Countrystone Walling Buff, they have been able to create a wall that not only serves as a perimeter boundary but also gives the property real kerb appeal! The buff block works perfectly in contrast with the Bradstone Textured Coping Grey.

    Bradstone Countrystone Walling Buff

    Mr and Mrs Mayer from Kent again demonstrate how block paving can be a great option for creating a stunning patio area. They have created a contemporary outdoor space using a combination of materials and it's clear to see that the wooden sleepers and Bradstone StoneMaster Block Paving Mixed Shades Grey work perfectly together.

    Bradstone StoneMaster Block Paving Mixed Shades Grey

    Here we have another example of how striking the Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Vijaya Gold can be. We think you'll agree that Mr Darren Capehorn from Hampshire has created a stunning patio area which really highlights the natural beauty and variation exhibited in this stone. The Austin-Healey on display isn't bad looking either!

    Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Vijaya Gold

    Mr and Mrs Hawkes from Derbyshire have created a delightful patio area, combining the rich colour of the wooden decking with the rustic charm of the brick wall and the clean lines of the Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Blue-Black. The contrast of the traditional and modern works perfectly to create a relaxing space to enjoy a glass of wine!

    Bradstone Natural Slate Paving Blue-Black

    Mr John Lawrie from North Lanarkshire has laid StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Dune to create a charming outdoor area. Whilst this product can be used to create a contemporary feature, it has been used here in a more traditional setting to stunning effect.

    StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Dune

    Another example of how mixing materials can create a superb finish. Here we have a lovely curved feature wall built using Bradstone Natural Sandstone Walling Autumn Green and combined with wooden decking. Mr Philip Older from Buckinghamshire has created this feature which adds real impact to the garden, choosing to dry lay the stone to give a more rustic feel.

    Bradstone Natural Sandstone Walling Autumn Green

    Last but by no means least, we have another excellent example of the StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Dune, this time cut to give an elegant curved edge. We're sure you'll agree that the photograph sent in by Mr Russell Oxenden shows a superb level of workmanship.

    StoneFlair by Bradstone Smooth Natural Sandstone Paving Dune

    Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone who entered the competition. As with every year, the entries were all of an incredibly high standard and we here at Simply Paving had a very tough time reaching our decision. You will find many of the images entered into the competition will be featured on our website and in our gallery hopefully proving to be a source of inspiration to all of our customers.

  • And the winner is...

    Posted on January 19, 2012 by Simply Paving

    Another competition and another incredibly difficult decision.

    Year after year, the standard of entries to our annual photographic competition has left us gobsmacked here in the Simply Paving office. This latest competition has been no different - we were in awe of the level of skill in both design and workmanship on show in the photographs - because of this we have chosen one outright winner who will receive a cheque of £500, a second place entry who will receive a cheque of £200 and nine runners-up who will each receive a cheque for £100.

    Enough of us telling you how good the entries are, see for yourself below!

    The first prize of £500 goes to Mrs Zoe and Mr Craig Lewis of North Yorkshire with this stunning entry, which really displays an incredible level of workmanship and demonstrates the clean lines and subtle tonal variations of the Bradstone StoneMaster Block Paving range. Using a mix of the three colours in the Buff shades; Dark Buff Cast, Dark Buff Washed and Light Buff Washed they have produced a very attractive driveway that perfectly replicates the look of natural sandstone block paving, which works perfectly with the brickwork of the house.

    This year, for the first time we have chosen a second placed entry who will be cashing a cheque for £200.

    Second place in our competition has been awarded to Mrs Jane Morris from Surrey who has created an absolutely beautiful outdoor space using Bradstone's Woburn Rumbled Block Paving Graphite. Using three sizes, the customer has created an eye-catching concentric circle design which adds interest, whilst we think you'll agree the Graphite colour works superbly with the wooden building, fencing and decking and also the planting scheme.

    Our nine runners-up, each winning a prize of £100 are:

    Mr Kevin Paterson from Kent who has used Bradstone Textured Paving Grey 600 x 600's to fantastic effect, creating this stunning contemporary outdoor space. Although, this product is part of our Value Range the finished job is clearly of very high quality, underlining just what can be achieved with any of our products.

    Here, Mr Daniel Jones from Shropshire demonstrates how using a combination of materials can produce a very effective modern look. The decking, trellis and pergola work incredibly well when used alongside the StoneFlair by Bradstone Vogue Paving and the StoneFlair by Bradstone Polished Natural Sandstone Paving Fossil Buff.

    Mr Darren Ayres from Cambridgeshire has produced a stunning outdoor space using StoneFlair by Bradstone Polished Natural Sandstone Paving Fossil Buff. It looks a wonderful place to enjoy a relaxed summers evening, perhaps even with a few beers or a bottle of wine!

    In this photograph, Mrs Jennifer Floutier from Derbyshire shows that practical can be beautiful. Using Bradstone Woburn Rumbled Infilta Permeable Block Paving Rustic they have been able to create a driveway that is not only pleasing on the eye but also conforms to the legislation regarding paving the front of your home. For more information on the laying of Bradstone's range of Permeable Block Paving click here.

    Mr John West from Cambridgeshire again demonstrates how one of our Value Range products can transform your outdoor space without spending the earth! This is more of a traditional feel than the earlier entry and uses Bradstone Weathered Riven Paving Weathered Cotswold 450 x 450's to create a stunning patio incorporating an access ramp.

    Another example of how mixing materials can create a superb contemporary finish. Here Mr Martin Markcrow from Oxfordshire has combined wooden beds with Bradstone Decorative Aggregates Nordic Spar and StoneFlair by Bradstone Panache Long Aspect Black Textured to create both a dining area and pathways between planted areas. I think you'll agree, this photograph could have been taken straight out of Bradstone's new brochure.

    Mr Mike Ellis from Flintshire has used StoneFlair by Bradstone Polished Natural Sandstone Paving Rainbow to create a charming outdoor dining area. The paving, decking and furniture work perfectly together and you can just imagine enjoying a summer salad here, unwinding after a day at work.

    Ten out of ten on our next entry for both effort and Photoshop skills (we want that number plate)! Mr Phil Sutton from Cornwall has created a stunning driveway using Bradstone's Woburn Rumbled Block Paving Autumn. First impressions are important and the customer has given his property an extra touch of class and real kerb appeal.

    You could be sat somewhere in the Mediterranean, but in fact you'd be sat in the garden of Mr Ray Lane from Kent. Using Bradstone Tile Paving Mellow Terracotta 300 x 300's the customer has evoked all the spirit, charm and warmth associated with true terracotta tiles.

    Congratulations to all of our winners and thank you to everyone who entered the competition. The entries were all of an incredibly high standard and we here at Simply Paving had a very tough time reaching our decision. You will find many of the images entered into the competition will be featured on our website and in our gallery hopefully proving to be a source of inspiration to all of our customers.

    After a huge number of fantastic entries, Simply Paving are absolutely delighted to announce the results of our latest competition.

    The quality of the photographs we have received is incredibly high and the level of workmanship on show is superb, so much so that we simply couldn't limit the number of prizes given to just six entrants as with previous competitions.

  • New for 2011

    Posted on December 20, 2010 by Simply Paving

    This time of year is always very exciting for us here in the Simply Paving office as we get our first glimpses of the new range of products for the upcoming season.

    The first thing you may notice, is a change in branding of the Bradstone and StoneFlair ranges. As some of our customers may be aware, our two main suppliers, Bradstone and StoneFlair are actually sister companies and as of 2011 they will be working even more closely together. One key element of this rebranding is the introduction of StoneFlair by Bradstone, a range under which all premium products, both manufactured and natural, will fall.

    New Products - Traditional

    Restoration - A brand new natural sandstone paving with a chiselled profile and craggy face to create the look and feel of a weathered patio instantly. Available in handy 9.60m2 patio packs with three different sized pavers (800x400, 600x400 and 400x400).

    Restoration Paving from StoneFlair by Bradstone brings instant maturity to your patio.

    Cloisters - Manufactured using hand-picked masters reclaimed from a 300 year old wool merchants in Shepton Mallet. There is plenty of character in each profile to add a timeless style to your garden. Cloisters is manufactured using 30% recycled aggregates and is available in a blend of three distinct but complementary shades which are designed to be laid together. Cloisters is available in two patio packs, one with larger sizes up to 1000x800 to replicate traditional paving and the other incorporating a long aspect slats design for a more modern feel.

Can be used in two completely different laying patterns for a contemporary offset patio or for the more adventurous, why not try a 3D box effect on your patio.

    New Products - Concrete Block Paving
