  • 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.

    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.

    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. As such we have selected one outright winner who will receive the first prize of £500 and ten runners-up who will each receive £100.

    The winner taking the first prize of £500 is Mrs Linda MacLiver from Glasgow, with this stunning entry which really captures the beautiful tonal variations and elegant clean lines of the Modena Paving in Sunset Buff from StoneFlair by Bradstone.

    The winning entry wonderfully demonstrates the use of different materials to create an area that is not only eye-catching, but also perfectly practical for entertaining on and making the most of those sun-baked summer days that we're all longing for.

  • 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.

    New Products - Concrete Block Paving

    StoneMaster - In addition to the already established StoneMaster range colours that replicate sawn sandstone blocks (Dark Buff Washed, Dark Buff Cast and Light Buff Washed), Bradstone have introduced three more colours to reflect the shades of natural granite. Available in mixed size packs, the three new colours of Light Grey Washed, Mid Grey Washed and Dark Grey Washed can be blended to give your driveway or patio a very contemporary look.

  • Our Suppliers and the Environment

    Posted on February 26, 2010 by Simply Paving

    As part of Aggregate Industries, our main suppliers, Bradstone, Charcon and StoneFlair are at the forefront of developments to increase the sustainability of domestic and commercial landscaping materials.

    The journey began a decade ago, when the company took the decision to focus on and invest in developing sustainable solutions across their comprehensive range of innovative building products.

    Today, their investment is reaping rewards, with Aggregate Industries involved in a number of important and influential initiatives designed to make it easy for you, the consumer, to both recognise the most sustainable materials and identify those that have been most responsibly sourced.


    The Responsible Source - a world first

    Chances are, you've heard the mention of responsible sourcing in the news recently. In straightforward terms, responsible sourcing is about measuring the specific environmental, economic and social impacts of any product, taking into account such factors as its manufacture, delivery, use, re-use and the ability for it to be recycled.

    The good news is that Aggregate Industries are the first company in the world to achieve the BES 6001 Responsible Sourcing Certificate. With this unique status, you can have absolute confidence that the products supplied have been responsibly sourced and that you're getting the industry's most sustainable solutions. You don't just know what you're getting - you also know where you're getting it from.

    Ethical Trading

    As a group, Aggregate Industries support the principles of the UN Global Compact and the Ethical Trading Initiative base code. This is reflected in their policy and code of practice that
     aims to ensure that together with their suppliers, Aggregate Industries fulfil their obligations and responsibilities in order to maintain long-term benefits to all parties.

    Examples of criteria their suppliers have to meet are:

    • Prohibition of child labour
    • Provision of a safe workplace
    • Provision of all employment rights
    • Prohibition of bonded or forced labour
    • Paying wages that meet or exceed national legal requirements.

    Carbon Labelling

    Wouldn't it be great if you could see, at a glance, just how much CO2 a product generates?

    Now you can, thanks to carbon labelling, an initiative piloted by The Carbon Trust. Carbon labelling calculates the carbon footprint of products across their entire life cycle - from production, to use and disposal - and then displays the information clearly on a label.

    Carbon labelling not only clearly indicates how much a company is committed to reducing carbon emissions, but the 'footprint' logo also enables consumers to make a more informed decision about the products they're buying.

    Look out for these logos in the new Bradstone and StoneFlair 2010 brochures but also keep an eye out for them appearing on our website in the very near future.

  • New for 2010

    Posted on January 15, 2010 by Simply Paving

    This is one of the most exciting times of the year for us here at Simply Paving, the launch of the new brochures and for most of us, a first glimpse of the new products for the upcoming season.

    Both Bradstone and StoneFlair look to have been busy developing new lines and there really are some stunning products available in 2010...

    One particularly eye-catching product is Bradstone's New Panache an exciting addition to their already established Panache paving range, New Panache takes style to a new level with its contemporary colours, not to mention a surface that sparkles in the sunlight.

    New Panache arrives with three shades White, Black and Silver Grey each with two finishes, Ground and Textured allowing for endless design possibilities and guaranteed individuality.

    New Panache also comes coated with Bradstone's surface protection to ease cleaning and boasts excellent eco-credentials with its high recycled content of 83% for the White shade and 64% in the Black and Silver Grey.

    StoneFlair have launched an equally stylish product for 2010, Purestone Waddington Fell, with very reassuring eco-credentials of its own.

    With its soft subtle hues, smooth even surface and sawn edges, the British sourced Purestone Waddington Fell is a beautiful looking and stylish natural sandstone patio paving slab, sure to enhance any patio or garden design. But it’s more than just a pretty face.

    In fact, Purestone Waddington Fell has achieved a world first: it’s the only certified responsibly sourced natural stone anywhere on the planet. It’s your assurance that the stone has been produced in a totally ethical and responsible manner, with the impact of operations minimised during the process.

    StoneFlair have also made an exciting addition to the very popular Yorkvale range with Yorkvale EcoPave, an authentic yet cost-effective alternative to natural stone, manufactured using up to 85% recycled aggregate to offer the eco gardener a genuinely sustainable product. As StoneFlair state "Past inspiration, environmental consideration".

    In addition to these superb new patio products, there are a number of new domestic driveway products available in 2010. Many of these products are 65mm-80mm so are also suitable for commercial applications.

    These include Bradstone's Parliament block paving with glinting highlights of exposed granite and complementary shades for stunning effect.

    Why not take a look at the elegant but durable Bradstone Vianova, a contemporary polished block paving containing the highest quality basalt and granite aggregate, or if it's a more traditional feel that you're after try Bradstone's EcoPave, with exposed Cornish granite aggregate providing a subtle sparkle and a weathered appearance for visual appeal coupled with eco-credentials.

    Also new to the Bradstone block paving range are Andover Textured and Andover Washed. Available in Charcoal, Cream and Silver Grey shades, Cornish aggregate gives Andover Textured a finely textured quality finish. Whilst Andover Washed is a premium quality paving block containing at least 50% recycled materials and gives a more understated contemporary finish. Subtly textured, try combining both of the complementary shades of Anthracite Charcoal and Silver Grey for stunning effect.

    Finally, why not have a truly "green" driveway, with the launch of Bradstone's superb Grassgrid, with over 50% recycled content, Grassgrid block paving combines natural looking hard standing areas for vehicles with great green credentials.

    All in all, there are some very impressive products on offer for 2010, if you'd like more information on these or any of our other products, check out our website or contact the office on 0800 032 6306.

    The level of workmanship demonstrated in the job is extraordinary, fully realising the potential of this stunning product. The combination of the two colours is both classic and contemporary, whilst the product has been expertly laid using the three available sizes.

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

    Mr Ian Rivers from Hamilton, Leicestershire with StoneFlair’s Purestone Polished Sandstone in Ivory.

    Mr Nicholas McCafferty from Kettering, Northamptonshire with Bradstone’s Cobble Carpet Stones in Rustic Red.

    Mr Ian Hughes from Bishampton, Worcestershire with Bradstone’s Natural Limestone in Cotswold.

    Mr Kieran Cleary from Marlborough, Wiltshire with StoneFlair’s Moorland Walling in Autumn Brown.

    Mr Robert Jack from Rugby Warwickshire with Bradstone’s Textured Paving and Circle in Buff.

    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.

    Make sure you keep an eye out for more fantastic competitions from Simply Paving over the coming months.
