  • Congratulations!

    Posted on January 11, 2011 by Simply Paving

    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.

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

    Mrs Inna John from Stevenage, Hertfordshire has created a contemporary outdoor space using Natural Granite Paving in Silver Grey from StoneFlair by Bradstone with its straight machine cut edges and textured top surface.

    Mr Keith Razzell from Woking, Surrey with Yorkvale Paving in Antique Gold from Bradstone. This product with its riven surface profile and irregular fettled edges has been expertly laid using the three sized Tudor pattern.

    Mr Simon Jaggard-Inglis from Claybrooke Magna, Leicestershire has used Natural Limestone Paving in Blue-Black from Bradstone with its softer hand cut edges and subtly riven surface lending an exceptional quality finish to the modern design.

    Mr John Woods from Glasgow with Natural Slate Paving in Vijaya Gold from Bradstone. As you can see from the photograph, Natural Slate Paving offers outstanding natural beauty with every individual paviour unique in appearance featuring its own distinctive colours and shades.

    Mr Craig Evans from Millom, Cumbria with Natural Sandstone Paving in Sunset Buff from Bradstone, using both sizes of circle and randomly laid paving. This product offers a wealth of design possibilities with its unique shape, colour and texture making it an ideal solution for either traditional or contemporary gardens.

    Mr Tim Miller from London with Old Town Paving and Walling in Weathered Limestone from StoneFlair by Bradstone. This paving solution looks to the past for inspiration, replicating the look and feel of old weathered York flagstones, whilst the complimentary walling helps create an attractive boundary to the patio area.

    Mr Roy Underhill from Christchurch, Dorset with Monksbridge Block Paving in Croft from Bradstone. This block paving solution is designed to give your driveway a predominantly traditional feel and rustic look, with a range of subtle hues and a weather worn appearance.

    Mr Mark Hamer from Skelmersdale, Lancashire has created a sleek and sophisticated look using Panache Ground Paving in White and Black and Natural Polished Sandstone Paving in Silver Grey from StoneFlair by Bradstone.

    Mr Andy Moffat from Glasgow has created a wonderfully traditional patio area with Weathered Riven Paving in Autumn Cotswold from Bradstone (sealed). This moulded paving solution provides a convincing aged and worn stone appearance, thanks to fettled style edges.

    Mr Acland from Taunton, Somerset has been very inventive with the use of Driveway Block Paving in Autumn, Buff and Charcoal from Bradstone. This hard-wearing and durable paving solution offers a wealth of mix and match possibilities and is available in seven colour options.

    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.

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

  • 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.
