In Cheltenham we installed a 65m² beach theme for a customer who had seen a similar installation on our website. This was created using Almond for the beach and 13 different blends of blue for the sea.  

As a £7.5m project nears completion we were on site to lay our Natural Aggregate in Sterling to footpaths in the car park for Tewkesbury Leisure Centre.

We exhibited at the Homebuilding & Renovating Show with our Approved Installer Botanica who received a Marshall’s award from Kevin Keegan. Read our Blog.  

We were delighted to be working with the designer of the official RHS Chelsea Flower Show Garden: Greening Grey Britain. Ann-Marie Powell selected SureSet resin bound paving for her design because of its permeability and contemporary look. Read our Blog.

Closed for repairs following storm damage, the Jubilee Pool in Penzance reopened on May 28. We laid a 1363m² bespoke Pool Green pool surround based on local ‘Greestone’. Read our case study.  

Set in the idyllic grounds of Hinxton Hall, Cambridge Genome Campus hosts scientific research, courses, conferences and a nature reserve. Sponsored by Wellcome, the Campus is undergoing an expansion to create an international centre for scientific, business, cultural and educational activities. SureSet was specified for a series of pedestrian pathways within the Campus.

We carried out a number of ‘no dig’ installations that included a pathway for registered charity, Garden Organic in Coventry for their new Paradise Garden, created as a tribute to the late Geoff Hamilton of Gardeners World. Another was a roof deck in Wimbledon Park Road.

At the Walkergate Park Centre for Neurorehabilitation and Neuropsychiatry in Tyne and Wear we installed a 547m² Barley Beach footpath.  

We laid a pathway for Corpus Christie College, Oxford and a kidney shaped tree ‘trench’ and tree pits in Smethwick town centre.  

Our second resin bound installation for Care South Home this year, we laid a 92m² footpath for St Ives House in Ringwood. Read about our installation at Wickmead Care Home.  

Ensuring accessibility, a resin bound courtyard and ramp was installed at Kennet Island, Reading.  Located close to the town centre Kennet Island is a development of newly built, contemporary designed apartments and houses.  

For a mixed use development site adjacent to Queens Park Station in South Kilburn, we installed 376m² to tree pits and cycle shelters in Barley Beach and Norwegian Pearl.
