What about mews houses where everything would normally have to be trudged through the living room?

The text is concise and generally useful, printed in a clean, light sans-serif font which means it doesn’t detract from the imagery, which, as we know, is what really sells a paving.

Normally at that time of year, the Postie is cursing me for being the cause of a bulging sack, but this winter, it’s been strangely quiet. Multiple packs can be bolted together to create larger areas. By and large, that is not a bad thing. In fact, I think it may well become the most popular of the lot in the north — those darn sarff will still prefer the softer Cotswold and Limestone colours. Well, according the incredibly friendly marketing team, it’s a whole new look for Bradstone inwith more focus on producing a brochure that has extra lashings of that upmarket coffee-table book styling which appeals to the clients, while maintaining Bradstone’s reputation for clear and concise size and pack information, which is what’s needed by the contractor.

Interestingly, they have decided to run with the ‘porcelain’ description, but have included a bit of blurb about how this form of ‘porcelain’ in anything but fragile. It’s a good idea, I can see the appeal, but it just doesn’t grab you straight away, as a good mission statement should.

The decision to use full page images for all of the key products, and to back them up with more generous support images is most welcome and a positive change from the now-banished thumbnails which achieved nothing.

Let’s approach it with an open mind. As already mentioned, the assembled base is levelled up using simple but sturdy screw plastic pedestals which, in turn, sit on top of the supplied concrete padstones. Add a white table for a truly European experience??? Firstly, I know I’ve struggled in the past to get my head around the Bradstone-StoneFlair-BorderStone merry-go-round, but just as I think I’ve more-or-less got there, they decide to rationalise the ancient bedrock of the brands with yet another re-jig of the reproduction riven flagstone offering.


Here the first 1 pages from the catalog “Contemporary paving Ventura” P. You don’t need me to tell you that if you are in any way serious about paving, whether you are a contractor, a designer, a DIYer or just someone looking to upgrade their garden or driveway this year, then you simply must get the Bradstone brochure. It is simply glorious. However, just one size, and it’s a boring xmm square. I’d better crack on with comments on the brochure itself before this laptop screen runs out of ink.

I do hope so! Onlyavailable in MinsterGreen with AztecGold starTraditionalBamburgh MillA painstakingly recreated flagstone that recalls all thecharm and character of yesteryear It keeps the brand fresh while opening new opportunities, and expanding the design options for those keen on a more contemporary but naturalistic look. There’s even a couple of well-deserved pages given over to the up-and-coming designer, Paul Hervey-Brookes, who was nurtured under the very worthwhile Bradstone mentoring scheme they run with yer Chris Beardshaw.

An authentic look at a great value price.

Even a so-called ‘budget’ product, such as Ashbourne Paving, can look fantastic with the right photography. I mentioned the potential conflict with the respected Panache flagstone, but that range has been severely trimmed and now consists only of the ground option, the shot-textured option obviously been replaced by Mahina, but why?

Here the first 1 pages from the catalog “Traditional paving Honeymede” P. Essentially, it’s a ‘lay-over’ installation system. There are more swatches per product, and they are much more representative, showing three or four mini-examples of each product so that the client gets a truer impression brichure the variation in colouring and texture that inevitably occurs with paving and hard-landscaping.

Stonemaster block paving – still drop-dead gorgeous. But what about new stuff? The flagstones are elevated so the whole shebang braadstone be placed right outside a patio door to give that much-desired ‘level walk through’ with no risk of compromising DPC levels.

At a time when our trade needs any help it can get, maybe a different approach to installation of small projects is what we need to stimulate interest. Further, the whole thing can be, and has been, assembled by cack-handed no-discernible-practical-skills marketing types in less than 90 minutes. Individual flags could be omitted to be replaced by decorative aggs or boulders. Liscia is another newcomer with the same one-size-fits-all problem as already discussed, although it’s xmm in bradsotne case, The paver in question is a fine quality cast concrete flag with a lightly stippled finish and comes in two colour options: Complicated but simultaneously intriguing.


Considering the brochure as a whole, my brochjre impression when it was placed into my eager, grubby mitts was mild disappointment: The technical info is restrained, but informative brocnure tidy.

All could be possible.

Inset trays for mini-planters, bespoke lighting units, feature panels? It looks bloody complicated. Not a lot more, admittedly, but a couple of other items that warrant a mention. Users don’t go to such sites to be entertained; they are there looking for guidance and information presented as simply and as lucidly as possible. And why the name change?

Unless the price of imported stone starts to rocket and that’s not all that unlikely! The one new product is “Traditional Riven” which is a pressed and embossed concrete flag with the gentlest of riven surfaces which has then been shot-textured to give that extra-grippy styling.

The braddstone design givesan ultra modern feel to the garden. Experience tells me that shot-textured light-coloured paving doesn’t fare well with tyres. It’s also burdened or emblazoned you decide! When you’re paying top dollar for a paving, you’d want a bit more choice than stack or stretcher bond, wouldn’t you?

It’s certain to attract strong opinion. However, I do like it when showcase projects by pet contractors are featured, as it subliminally promotes the better-than-average installer, giving them the credit they truly deserve, but without being overly pushy. To recap, StoneFlair is now the premium brand within Bradstone, a bit like ‘Finest’ is the premium brand for Tesco stuff, but once that had been sorted, it became apparent that there were just too many broxhure product lines, some of which are original Bradstone, some which came with StoneFlair and some that once resided with Border Stone.
