Burlington redefines its landscaping product offering
Leading British stone engineers, Cumbria-based Burlington, has introduced an expanded range of landscaping products that are being increasingly used to create stunning yet functional commercial and domestic schemes.
Being showcased at the company’s newly opened Stone Studio located at the site of its head office and main production centre in Kirkby-in-Furness, Burlington’s landscaping product range now takes in both off-the-shelf and bespoke materials.
Enabling landscape designers and home owners to combine uniform shapes and lines with random materials as a means of bringing designs to life - from formal to informal, traditional to contemporary – is a wide and diverse array of products.
With the permanence of the stone serving to provide a perfect contrast to the evolving shape of planting, whilst interacting with other landscaping materials, Burlington now offers modular units of split faced walling stone that are simple and easy to install. Continuing to deliver that authentic random look, Burlington’s split faced walling comes in six different sizes, all of which are 75mm deep.
Symbolic of the Lake District and an integral element of its unique landscape, walling stone has been used for centuries to create superstructures of every conceivable shape, size and form. Not surprisingly, Burlington continues to offer both traditional random and weathered walling in both blue/grey and Westmorland Green stone.
Additionally, Burlington has introduced a range of standard tile packs, all of which are suitable for creating hard landscaping areas such as patio areas, pathways, not to mention circular patio sets. Guaranteed to deliver a lasting statement of permanence and substance, Burlington paving is unmatched in terms of its technical performance when compared to many other stones, natural and reconstituted. Extremely hard wearing, practical and durable, Burlington paving – dimensional and crazy – is available with a choice of smooth and textured finishes.
Completing Burlington’s landscaping product offering are decorative and functional aggregates that are an ideal medium for any kind of hard landscaping design. Available in a multitude of sizes, from dusts and fines, to mulches to paddlestones, they are commonly used for a variety of applications including the creation of garden paths, driveways, ponds and water features.
Burlington’s mulch products, in particular, are widely sought after as an inexpensive, low-maintenance gardening solution. As well as providing an attractive contrast when used in conjunction with paving/feature stones, Burlington’s slate mulch actually benefits the soil’s growing conditions, without degrading or breaking down.
Commenting on this latest development, Sales and Marketing Director, Nick Williams said: “From the patio to the garden, it is our intention to widen the appeal of Burlington’s landscaping product offering by providing a combination of standard lines with more bespoke pieces. In doing so, and by being able to showcase them at the location of the new stone studio, we can demonstrate how dimensional and random stone solutions can be combined or used in isolation to create final schemes that meet the needs of the most discerning tastes.”
