We’ve been working with Global Stone since our business started in 2005, and have got to know the team there pretty well. Global Stone was formed around the same time as us, just down the road in Colchester, and we’ve forged a good relationship.
Global Stone supply us with sandstone, paving, walling, cobbles and porcelain paving, which is a really big trend right now. Porcelain paving is tougher than it sounds – it’s a ceramic outdoor slab that doesn’t absorb water, so it’s a brilliant low-maintenance option for an outdoor patio. It’s also strong, resistant to mould and moss damage, and won’t fade in the sun, which means if a particular colour is important to your garden scheme, it won’t lose its shade over time.
Sandstone is of course still really popular in many garden designs, and won’t stretch the budget as porcelain might. Global Stone’s range fits both modern and period schemes and is strong enough for driveways and patios, and we know that for many of our customers it’s the ideal solution for their garden schemes.
As Global Stone expands its product range, we look forward to working with our “old friends” and inspiring new landscapes.
