Albion supplied Portland Grove Whitbed copings and larger pavers. The character in the the Grove Whitbed makes a wonderful feature in the garden.

“Mixing sleek hard landscaping with drifts of soft planting, the garden provides a contemporary yet relaxing city haven for a professional couple in which to unwind.”

The garden won a 'Silver Gilt' award and the BBC have done a 3 minute showcase about the use of quality British materials in this garden. The British materials used include Portland Stone, Purbeck stone and weathered oak.
