Raised Garden Beds

This creatives a real touch of style in gardens. Also called garden boxes, they are great for growing small plots of veggies and flowers and keep pathway weeds from your garden soil, prevent soil compaction, provide good drainage, and serve as a excellent barrier to pests such as slugs and snails.

Garden Bench

An eye-catching feature in any garden. It looks great and again has a beautifully rustic feel.

Outdoor BBQ

Need we say more… BBQ Grill Island. Yorkstone Paving has arguably more character than anything else on the market. Each and every piece has a unique patina for years of use, and perfect creating a long lasting outdoor BBQ.

Garden Terrace

Door Step

An attractive entrance to your home. This is one of the simplest steps to build. Your front door can say so much about the owner, it can be relaxed and welcoming or more formal. It’s the first and last impression.


When paving a garden or outdoor area, understanding which material is best suited to the job is an important factor.  Not only do you want your choice to look good for years to come, but to function well for your needs. Yorkstone looks wonderful and very natural, and will last a lifetime.

Beautiful and natural yorkstone will stand the test of time, and is popular in both new construction and restoration. We hope that we have inspired you to get creative, making your home the perfect sanctuary.
