August 2015 Update

August 2015 This summer Kebur has been looking into introducing lots of new product to create your perfect patio. We have just introduced our new product ‘Black Limestone Setts’. Kebur imports these directly from India. These natural stone setts are available in 200 x 100 or 100 x 100 thickness 35-45mm. They are ideal for cobbled pathways, patios or edgings. Customers are often coming in looking for an edging sett for their new patios, we think these sett would go great with the Natural Granite or Limestone!       Within the next few months we will be importing some more Natural Stones items. Kebur will be stocking a range on Sandstone step treads. These will be in a smooth finish in a choice of Fossil Mint and Silver Grey 900 x 350.

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...

Review of Summer 2012 Landscaping Jobs

It’s been a busy first summer for the new Kebur Garden Materials Landscaping Division.  Managed by business partner David Booton, the experienced landscapers of Dom and Clive along with Sean have been working all around the local area, installing new patios, erecting fencing and carrying out all sorts of landscaping projects.  We have been very pleased with the results and most importantly our customers seem to be too. The team aim to work closely with their clients to achieve the garden design that they desire and help provide some inspiration.  David will provide a no obligation site visit and a clear quotation in the first instance. For those that require a clearer view of the finished design they can arrange for a small fee, a to-scale hand drawn design to be done. A full portfolio of a number of the jobs carried out can be view on the installation page on the Kebur website and below we look at some of these jobs. Representing great value and creating beautiful patios mean that Natural (Indian) Sandstone continues to be a firm favourite and so the Landscape Division have laid many of these patios and also incorporated edgings, walling and steps to suit. Some customers have chosen to have a curved edge to the patio whilst some have gone for more traditional rectangular patio.  You will see from the pictures below that there are a range of colours to chose from with each colour having natural variations in shading helping to create a stunning look. One of the favourite jobs done to date was in a fairly small garden in a new house in Guildford. ...

We’re singing in the rain…!

We are still all waiting for summer to arrive but at Kebur we haven’t let the miserable weather stop us and plenty has been going on.  A new outdoor show area at the front of the recently refurbished Fir Tree Pub is almost complete.  The show area displays much of the Bradstone Natural Stone Paving range.  There is an array of riven and polished sandstones in a variety of colours with edging setts and walling to match  Limestone paving in blue-black, azure and honeymede colours as well as the beautiful Finesse limestone, currently on special offer at Kebur. There is granite in silver grey or graphite colours and slate in both the blue-black and vijaya gold shades.  Furthermore some of the Panache and Old Town Paving is shown as well as a decking display and some of the Verdelawn artificial grass. All the paving was laid by our landscaping team of Clive, Dominic and Sean, headed up by partner Dave Booton.  They have also been busy installing patios, drives and fencing in the local area.  You can see some of their work on the installation page of our website. Due to new legislation regarding the London low emission zone and the fact some of our vehicles were becoming quite old and costly to repair we have had to invest in a some new trucks to to add to our fleet.  So we have two new Daf lorries with cranes, one that can carry 9.5 tonnes and another that can carry 5.75 tonnes.  Also we have a new Mitsubishi Fuso Canter tipper vehicle which can carry approz. 1.5 tonnes.  All vehicles are sign...
