Few garden installations combine elegance and simplicity as well as the Bradstone Natural Sandstone Sunset Buff Small Circle Kit, which is an excellent option for those looking for something to complement their carpets of green grass and surrounding plants. The buff and brown tones of this kit are easy on the eyes, being neither dazzling nor garish, but still possess the requisite amount of class to make your garden look like it was professionally paved. The kit is also quite flexible, allowing you to compose your own designs and layouts in whichever manner you see fit, limited only by the bounds of your imagination.
The small circle consists of 25 stones, 16 for the outer circle, 8 for the inner circle and a centre stone. The circle is 2.46 metres when sited. The alternative finish options are Autumn Green, Modac and Fossil Buff.
Sandstone is one of the earth’s lovelier paving products, with rich textures and variations in tone that supply a character often missing from coarser stones like granite. The Bradstone Natural Sandstone Fossil Buff Large Circle Kit will provide you with a generous helping of this beautiful structural building material, enough to satisfy your craving for something sophisticated and charming in the centre of your garden. The unusual colours of the fossil buff variant interplay nicely with the various green shades of your plants, producing a visual flow that relaxes the eyes.
This truly impressive large circle feature is 3.3 metres in diameters and contains 41 stones… 16 for the two largest circles, 8 for the inner circle and a central stone.
This kit is also available in Sunset Buff if you prefer that finish option.
If you’re tired of obviously manufactured garden landscape pavements, and don’t have the budget or inclination to spend for heavy-duty stonemason craftsmanship, the Bradstone Natural Sandstone Fossil Buff Small Circle Kit provides a wonderful midway alternative. The unique colouring used in the production of the blocks in this kit gives them the appearance of old stone formed from the processes of the earth, rather than the confines of a factory. This product, when properly installed, is tough against the weather, allowing for the safe runoff of water during a rainy day that would seep into and destroy pavements of lesser quality.
The small circle consists of 25 stones, 16 for the outer circle, 8 for the inner circle and a central stone which can be omitted and used as a circle plant area for a feature effect. The circle is 2.46 metres when sited. The other available finish options are Sunset Buff, Autumn Green and Modac.
If you’ve always fancied building a pathway of individual stones through your garden which incorporates a paving circle design, but dread the thought of individually laying and affixing hundreds of stones, Bradstone Carpet Stones provide the perfect solution. Each kit is comprised of several cobblestone arrangements, formed from stone pieces that have been linked together by an underlying mesh fabric. All you have to do is lay down the carpet stone pieces in the desired formation, and marvel afterwards at your very own stone pavement path, with the look and feel of authentic materials.
The carpet stones come in Charcoal, Rustic Red and Grey Green to satisfactorily complement any existing pavement designs and are available individually or in packs of fifteen. For a quick paving circle, you’ll only need two!
Some people like the look of block paving circles as opposed to the paving slab effect. Also, block paving circles can take the weight of a car, so can be incorporated into driveways, whereas paving slabs are usually too fragile to support the weight of vehicles and so are more suited to paths and patios. We’ve managed to find a few different block paving circle kits from Bradstone and Wickes which will save you the time of figuring out how many blocks to buy of which size. Just buy a kit and be done!
