The Bradstone  range offers you the very best in garden products and driveway materials, helping people transform their outdoor spaces since 1956. Bradstone originated from the family company of E H Bradley and Sons, which was established in 1902. Their long history and experience has offered homeowners a brand that they can trust throughout the decades.

Today, they still operate on one of their original sites, right on the southern edge of the Cotswolds. An area of England famous for the beauty of its historic villages, the natural stone quarried there is charac­te­rised by its soft yellow colour that they still use in their products today.

Bradstone call upon these many years of experience to design and develop products that set the standard for quality, performance and visual appeal. The philosophy behind their  range is to provide inspiration for homeowners so that they can have the garden or driveway of their dreams.

Bradstone now have Paul Hervey-Brookes working with them to design gardens and give inspiration for your outdoor space.

Paul has been interested in plants and gardens since childhood., this interest grew into deep fascination and Paul studied at  both Pershore College of Horticulture in and The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, giving him an opportunity to learn about plants and plant habitats from some of the most knowled­ge­able and inspiring plantsmen in the world. It was while working on gardens in Italy and France that Paul’s own ideas about garden design began to take form and shape.

In 2009 Paul was awarded the Bradstone sponsored Chris Beardshaw mentoring scholarship, an annual scholarship where he was supported by Bradstone and Chris Beardshaw to create his first award winning show garden, the Bradstone Biodiversity Garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

This journey proved addictive and Paul has now created a series of show gardens at RHS Chelsea Flower, RHS Hampton Court and RHS Malvern along with a number of other show features.

Paul’s work as a garden and landscape designer is highly diverse from small courtyards to large estate gardens and public spaces, both in the United Kingdom and Inter­nati­onally.

Paul is now adding to this by working with Bradstone to help provide design ideas, plants, hints and tips to you create your own dream gardens.
