Novel Uses Of Reclaimed Railway Sleepers

Being creative with the raw materials that you get from Natural Stone & Timber is easy considering what we have on offer. Slate tiles are very easy to work with if you are wanting to create a zone that really expresses your individuality. They have a truly distinctive look that sets them apart from other materials and paving made out of this naturally mined substance can add something different. There is no rule anywhere that states you must use conventional materials in conventional ways and combinations of different materials can really make for a unique environment that stands out, but it all must benefit from careful planning. Understanding the tones you want to create in a specific area will be all important and for this you will need to get some samples. We sell samples which can allow you to put different materials together in an effort to see how well they work.
