BBC Gardeners' World Live presented a unique opportunity for garden designers in the form of the Metamorphosis 'A Design Journey' show garden competition. The challenge for the designers was to be as innovative as possible within the boundaries of a set list of materials supplied by us.

Inspiration from Bradstone
Natural Porphyry : Stylish yet simple
The Metamorphosis designers were given the beautiful and varied colours and hues of the our Natural Porphyry in flamed range. This product was selected due to it bringing an added dimension of visual appeal to the garden designs. The delightful Indian stone calls upon a wonderfully distinct range of purples, pinks and reds and combines aesthetic appeal with exceptional durability. Each garden design featured Natural Porphyry slabs as well as the easy to lay setts on a netting base.
Natural Sandstone Walling : Making a garden unique
Laced with delicate shade variations, Natural Sandstone walling in Fossil Buff and Modac was the perfect addition for the show team to provide a truly interesting vertical feature in their garden
Decorative stones : Small in size, big on impact
The use of decorative stone can fundamentally transform the appearance of a garden. We supplied Harvest Gold 20mm decorative stone and the 50-80mm Scottish Cobbles that really added the wow factor to the designers' various features, borders and pathways.
We showed support by supplying top quality, inspirational paving, walling, coping and decorative stone products.
