IMAGINATIVE USES FOR YORKSHIRE STONE
Yorkstone’s natural durability and beautiful appearance has made it one of the most popular construction materials and a preferred choice for houses, driveways and public spaces across the UK.
It is also a highly versatile material that can be used to give your home and garden a unique, characterful feel. The possibilities, from fireplaces to water features, are endless and below are just a few ideas to kick-start your imagination.
Reclaimed Yorkstone flags are the perfect material for creating a rustic looking feature in any garden. In this example, Cheshire-based Topia Garden Design used them to make a terrace area for seating and raised beds.
Dry stone wall raised beds
Dry stone walling isn’t just for farms and it can add a real touch of style in gardens. Here, London-based The Garden Builders have used it to create raised beds around a Yorkstone patio.
Wirral-based Native Landscape Design created this bench from walling stone and flags, with the finished seat both practical and an eye-catching feature. As it’s Yorkstone, you can be sure it will outlive any wooden or plastic garden furniture by many years.
You don’t need a grand porch to make a feature of the entrance to your home, as this simple but attractive door step created by Gardens Galore of Perthshire demonstrates.
If you are lucky enough to have a property big enough for a roof terrace, Yorkstone flags are the ideal choice to give it some character, as Janet Bligh Garden Designs of Hampshire did here.
