Morning Gary,

First of all I think this is a Wonderful Group Gary, I love working with and using Stone in my Designs !!!

Yes "Hardscaping" is considered exactly that ----Hard goods plus landscaping= hardscaping,

sorry did not mean to offend you, I thought that was a term used all around, I learned that term in College long ago...here is reference to it..

Thank you,

Brigitt.

Re: natural stone suppliers. In the past I have used "Natural Paving" for sand/limestone slabs, & they were ok. I the used Rockford stone who import direct & have superb stocks at good prices. The only downside being that you had to over order as it is full pack quantities delivered via courier, but £12.25/m2 plus approx £2.50/m2 for delivery for top class stone I found competitive. I have since been buying more local direct from a company I know in Nottingham which works very well. Calibrated stone eg. raj green works out at approx. £20/m2 depending on quantity. Another tip is Stonemarket "market stone", which is sold as a "lower grade" product than their main paving lines is very good value & is of equal quality. To me it is a marketing tool they use to justify higher priced lines. My local merchant sells full packs @ £15.25/m2 delivered.

I usually use my local company - http://www.bannold.co.uk/  as they have a good range of products, I can go and look at them - and most  importantly they have signed up to the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) for their Indian sandstone - I wouldn't touch with a bargepole any stone from India  which doesn't have this.  The horrendous conditions (including child labour, bonded labour - basically slavery - and no safety equipment) in other quarries means that I couldn't buy from them with a clear concience.  I know that Marshalls, Natural Paving Products and Pavestone are also signed up to the EthicalTrading Initiative (ETI).

Hi All.

New to the Hardlandscaping Forum! We install mainly natural indian sandstone patios for clients and some even request a two tone effect or various colours as picture below. Does anyone know much about using the Quickpoint Mortar Gun for better speed and accuracy?
