WHY ITALIAN PORCELAIN ?

Italian porcelain is manufactured to the highest quality standard and has a more realistic surface, mimicking natural stone perfectly, whilst offering reduced maintenance and increase split resistance and its superior manufacture makes it easier to cut than all other porcelain products on the market.

We use the latest technologies in all our production plants, all of which are Sacmi machinery (sacmi is the number one in world for production line machinery and technology)

We source the finest raw materials from specific quarries from around the world to give best final result in quality of finish, for better durability meaning greater longevity of use, greater consistency from batch to batch as well as the latest high-definition inkjet printers for more defined realistic graphic design.

Our printers use minimum tri-colour heads to enable a wider spectrum of graphic variance, double most other products available in the UK, and refined attention detail for more realistic results. We have invested in longer than average Kilns for our production, this enabling us to manage closer and better the overall result of each product, this is achieved by gradually firing the tile over a longer period between temperatures of 1000 to 1300 degrees C, building the temperature up gradually and then a longer cooling down process meaning thus resulting in less stress on the product, meaning no bowing and less brittle than our competitors.

The production processes we use are above the industry norm, this helps us ensure our products have greater density than the average product in the market, meaning greater strength and less subject to wear under heavy foot traffic environments.


There will always be colour variations between batches, ensure you order enough to complete your project from one batch, never mix batches, allowing additional material for cuts and wastage.



Product Guidance

There will always be colour variations between batches, ensure you order enough to complete your project from one batch, never mix batches, allowing additional material for cuts and wastage.

Always keep a record of the batch code of the porcelain you have collected or had delivered, just in case future stock is required. The batch code is printed on the side of packaging boxes covering the porcelain paving products.

Please note the shade of the final product could differ slightly compared to the sample you may receive due to batch variation.We recommend that all customers read our product selection, maintenance & installation guides before purchasing, please follow one of the links below:

Do I need to put anything under bark chips?

It is really a personal choice whether you want to use a membrane under bark chips. This will reduce maintenance by suppressing the weeds further, but you will have future issues on the disposal of these membranes when they reach the end of their useful life. They can also look unsightly quickly after installation especially is you do not have enough bark chips to fully cover and protect this membrane.

How long do Bark chips last?

Bark chips can last a surprisingly long time as long a good material has been used. If they are well maintained and in sufficient quantity, you could expect them to last anything up to 5 years before starting to breakdown into the soil.

What size aggregate is best for my driveway?

We would always recommend using aggregates of either 14mm or 20mm in size for a domestic driveway, anything larger can be get flicked up to cars which can cause damage to bodywork, and anything small can be difficult to walk on and will get stuck in your shoes or car tyres.

What the difference between shingle and gravel?

They are basically the same thing, in the UK small rounded and angular stone quarried or dredged from the sea and called either shingle or gravel.

What depth should garden gravel be?

As a rule of thumb, you are going to need at least twice the depth of the chipping of gravel size. So, for 20mm chippings you are going to need at least 40mm depth to stop the base material showing through after time. Generally we would recommend going slightly deeper than this to ensure good coverage, but don’t go deeper than needed especially on small shingles / gravel such as 10mm which will be like walking on Brighton beach if used deeper than 40mm.

What do you put under stone chippings?

Using a weed suppressant membrane can greatly reduce the chances of movement under your stone chippings. It will also help reduce maintenance and keep you path or driveway looking better for longer. You must consider the environmental impact of using a plastic membrane in your garden and always consider careful if it's really needed.

Is artificial grass suitable for pets?

Artificial grass is free from lead and mercury, and you won't need any pesticides or fertiliser in its maintenance, which means your pet will not come into contact with any harmful chemicals whilst playing on your artificial grass and therefore it should be considered pet friendly.

How long does artificial grass last?

We offer a ten-year warranty on all our artificial grass, but you could expect  your artificial grass if installed correctly and maintained well, to last up to twenty years. This does greatly depend on the volume and type of traffic your Artificial grass receives, but in a normal domestic setting this life span should be expected. In play areas and high traffic areas you should expect this life to be greatly reduced.

How often should I clean artificial grass?

It is important to carry out regular maintenance and cleaning of your Artificial grass. Rinse Artificial grass once a week with clean water and pick up any debris on a regular basis. Every month you will need to clean with an appropriate artificial grass cleaner. This will ensure that you grass keeps looking in good condition for the long term.

Can artificial grass be laid on a slope?

It is possible to lay artificial grass on a slope, it will just take a few additional fixings along the top edge of the slope. Apart from that installation is very similar to laying artificial turf on a flat surface.

Can artificial grass be laid on decking?

Artificial grass can be installed directly onto decking boards and can be an easy solution to slippery unsafe decking areas. Fixing down by gluing is the best option. Ensure you do not install artificial grass over rotten decking boards. These will become dangerous under foot, and will also ruining the appearance of your artificial grass installation.

Is artificial grass bad for the environment?

In short yes artificial grass is bad for the environment. The production of the plastic emits carbon and uses fossil fuels. Artificial grass is also not currently widely recycled and will inevitably end up in landfill. There is also some strong possibility of micro plastic being created during the life span of Artificial grass which are currently covering the whole world with plastic particles.

Is artificial grass too hot for dogs?

It is very unlikely that artificial grass would ever reach temperature that would burn or injure a dog. It doesn’t not have a great deal of thermal mass to hold onto the suns heat which stops it from heating excessively. In extreme heat conditions normal precautions should be taken to ensure your dog’s temperature is well regulated and that they are not allowed to walk on hot surfaces.

Can artificial grass be laid on concrete?

Yes, it is possible to lay Artificial grass onto concrete, as long as the concrete is completely clean and dry, you are then able to use an artificial grass adhesive to fix the grass down directly onto the concrete surface. It is important that you firstly establish that the concrete base drains sufficiently to stop any build-up of water near the grass or you could reduce the life of the Artificial grass dramatically.

What is Yorkstone paving?

Yorkstone paving, also known as York stone, is a variety of sandstone, that comes from numerous quarries throughout Yorkshire in the UK. This material has been used for flooring and paving since medieval times and is one of the most prestigious paving options on the market with a price tag to match. It is generally quarried a lot thicker than its imported counterparts which add to the life expectancy of these slabs, which can be many hundreds of years.

How to point Yorkstone paving?

There are a few options when it comes to pointing Yorkstone paving. The traditional way of using sand and cement mortar is still very popular and comprises mixing the sand and cement in a 4 to 1 ratio. This is then mixed to a wet but workable consistency, which is then pressed into the joints using a pointing trowel or Iron. This method is very time consuming and expensive due to the labour costs involved, which has resulted in alternative products for easier installation being developed.

A very good alternative to the traditional method is Flowpoint, which is a cement-based product used mainly by the civil engineering industry but is a far quicker method and offers superior frost resistance to mortar pointing. This product is mixed into a slurry and then poured into the joints, it then hardens within ten minutes and the excess can then be brushed and hosed off. We recommend this product is used only by professional trades people as mistakes are very hard to rectify if used incorrectly.

We would recommend staying away from resin based products for such high end installations. You need the quality finish to match the quality paving material being used.

How to clean Yorkstone paving?

Cleaning Yorkstone paving is simple and basically the same as any other natural stone. Use soapy water and a stiff brush or, for tougher stains as well as moss and algae, we recommend using New Clean 60 available from our website. Apply and leave on for around 60 minutes then wash off with a stiff brush or power washer to ensure you have removed all of the cleaner. For further reading please follow the link to our tech guide

How to lay Yorkstone paving?

Very basically all Yorkstone paving should be laid on a full wet bed of mortar over a compacted hardcore or concrete base, deep enough for the site conditions. We have a great deal more information available on our natural stone paving installation guide that can be found at the link below:

Outdoor Installation Guide

Due to the thickness of Yorkstone paving, it is quite common to see this type of paving laid on sand or grit, with only the edges of the paving concreted into place. This is only a suitable method of installation if there is no chance of movement within the sub-base and surrounding features.

What is a glacial boulder?

Glacial boulders are stones and rocks that were exposed by a glacier and then made smooth by its movement, these were then left behind in large deposits after the glacier melted. Glacial boulders can be made up of many different materials from sandstone to granite with a wide range of shapes and colours, making them a perfect material for building walls, ponds, water features and countless other landscaping applications.
