The Yorkshire Garden – 1st In Royal Chelsea Garden Show!

Well Yorkshire reigns supreme at the Royal Chelsea Flower Show in London. On a beautiful warm spring day The Yorkshire Garden looked stunning and was so well designed that you could be forgiven for thinking you were in stunning Yorkshire Dales.

In helping the Yorkshire Garden win the top spot, we were asked to supply some of our natural Yorkstone Flags and reclaimed natural weathered stone from our local quarry in Honley West Yorkshire.

For the event we supplied different types of natural and reclaimed stone from the event.

The Yorkshire Garden in full force in the beautiful sunshine

We supplied the following stone:

  • Most of the stone not the field wall
  • The flag stones on the path
  • Reclaimed stone for the bridge
  • The window lintels
  • The roof slates
  • The stone ridges on the roof
  • The quoins up the corners
  • And some of the drystone walling

Our Yorkshire stone has long been regarded as the best Yorkshire stone with natural quarries in the stunning countryside of West Yorkshire that is synonymous with this county. Adding our Yorkstone to this project really brought an authentic feel to garden which helped the florists in creating the ultimate Yorkshire Garden and as proud Yorkshire folk we are over the moon that we came 1st!

Well done to all involved!

Californian Home Completed Using Yorkshire Stone From Abacus

You might remember from our earlier post where a customer of ours Scott Wilson sourced the finest Yorkshire stone and Yorkstone Flags for paving their Californian home to bring a touch of Yorkshire to the West Coast of the USA.

Well Scott has been kind enough to send over the completed pictures of his Californian paving and we think the Mexican masons have done a fantastic job.

Hello Allan,

Following up on my earlier email I thought you would appreciate seeing how we used the remainder of the Yorkstone pavers at our home project.

Happy as we were with the front walkway and the smaller pavers, we had no idea of the impact of using the larger pavers for the patio on the north side of the house. The courses ranged from 18″- 26″ and at the recommendation of a more experienced mason, we decreased the joint size slightly due to the near-perfect squareness of the pavers.  The net result was a more monolithic sweep of stone that seems like it has been in place for years.  We so loved the look and feel of the large pavers that we used the leftovers to extend the stone stairs at the north with in-ground courses that transition to a gravel terrace beyond.

We finished the work just in time for our son’s wedding and the guests at the reception were all praising the wonderful feel and look of the Yorkstone.  I am grateful to have found your company and its fine products and wish you continued success.

With best regards,

Scott Wilson AIACalifornian Homeowner
