June 2015 Update

June 2015 Update Lots has been going on at Kebur this month. Starting off with a new product, our Hardwood Sleepers. Just last week we got in our first load of New Treated Hardwood Sleepers they come in the size of 2.4m x 200 x 100. They are either Alder, Aspen or birch wood and have more consistent edgings and are less likely to split than the oak sleepers, all are pressure treated brown and cost £26.00 Inc. VAT. We often have customers coming in to see our driveway block paving. We now have a brand new Bradstone display showing the ranges that we offer, these include the Woburn Rumbled, Stone master, Woburn Original block paving and others, so please come down to have a look at the colours and ranges that Kebur offer. Our last new arrival is our brand new Nissan Cabstar! This month it will be painted Kebur orange and white to match the rest of the fleet then it will be on the roads to deliver. Our brand new tipper can take 1.4 tonne loads and is much smaller than our other vehicles which means it can fit up the more fiddly delivery...

Paving Planner May 2015

As we are creeping into summer, the daylight hours are getting longer and the temperature is beginning to rise. Now is the perfect time to get that patio finished. In the recent weeks we’ve had a number of customers ask us what size slabs they should use, and the patterns that they can create. Bradstone’s website has a programme called ‘Paving Planner’ which we find useful to recommend to customers when looking at laying a new patio. It helps you choose, the type of slab you’re looking for, the sizes how many of each you need in total to fit with your specific area. If you go onto https://www.bradstone.com/ then into ‘Guides and Advice’ you’ll see the first option called ‘Paving Planner’. Next you need to click on the box which says ‘Launch The Planner’ this should then open up to the correct area of the website for you to start designing. Firstly you’ll be asked to put in the measurement and shape of the area, there are some basic shapes you can follow and you are also able to drag the lines to fit your design. You can then go onto the next stage which involves picking you paving. All Bradstone products will be available on the paving planner; they are split into sections on contemporary, traditional and blocks. You can pick your slab and also what colour you would like (The colour may determine if you can buy it individually or in patio packs only).   It should then give you a floor plan of the slabs. Along the right hand column you can change the sizes...

Bradstone New Products 2013

At Kebur Garden Materials we continue to have a strong relationship with Bradstone and they are responsible for manufacturing and supplying a large proportion of the paving, block paving, decorative aggregates and walling that we sell. The levels of service Bradstone offer and the quality of the products they produce make them a good supplier. The Bradstone range of garden and driveway products have been manufactured and marketed since 1956. Bradstone originated from the family company of E H Bradley and Sons, which was established in 1902. Throughout the years Bradstone have evolved their stock range to suit current trends and tastes and most years see the discontinuation of some products and the launch of new ones. So, let’s take a look at the new products, starting with the Ancestry range. Bradstone say that the Ancestry range has period charm and the authenticity of yesteryear and has been moulded from original natural stone masters. The range includes paving, which in it’s look is not too disimilar to the old ranges of Milldale or Weatherdale, walling which is essentially the same moulds as what was known as landscape walling with three block sizes available and an edging in which a group of ten stones line up, just as the stone edging used to. The full range has a rustic appearance and is available in a choice of three colours; Abbey Brown, Abbey Storm and Abbey Original. Also new to Bradstone is the Old Riven Walling.  The Milldale Walling, long part of the Bradstone range has been discontinued, but the Old Riven Walling Blocks are the same but in a different...
