2019 has been a spectacular year for entries to our annual photographic competition!
We have received more than 100+ entries, all demonstrating many different products and design ideas.
Like previous years we have been blown away this year has been no different, with great skill exhibited both in terms of design and workmanship with all entries.

As we received so many incredible entries, this year we had one winner of £500, a second place of £200 and ten runners up who will receive £100 each!

We would like to thank everyone who entered and we cannot wait to share your fabulous entries on our website for others to enjoy.

Our first prize winner and recipient of £500 is Mr.Paul Niedzwiedzki of Lincolnshire.
Mr.Niedzwiedzki has created a breathtaking area using the Vetusto Porcelain Paving in Rustic Gold. He has cleverly used the 4 sizes within the Patio Pack to produce a levelled effect pathway along with a beautiful patio area,perfect for the summer months.
The bronze hues of the Rustic Gold look perfect within its setting with a combination of decorative aggregates as a border and also carefully placed potted plants.
I’m sure you will agree the product has been laid with extreme care and precision.
A truly remarkable entry and well deserved first place winner!

Moving onto our next runner up Mr. Aaron Joyce of Norwich who has created a pathway and side patio using the very popular Bradstone Mode Profiled Porcelain Paving in Silver Grey.
Mr.Joyce has used a mix of two sizes to create his own pattern to suit his area.
The contemporary and very ‘on trend’ silver tones are a perfect contrast against the red brick house and charcoal edging.
The Mode range is a modern paving which adds elegance and sophistication to any outdoor space.
This garden looks cool and contemporary, a perfect area for entertaining guests.

Now to announce the ten runners up and winners of £100 each!

Firstly we have Mr.Barry Barrett of Plymouth who has used one of our value products to really enhance his area!
Mr.Barrett has used the Bradstone Peak Riven Paving in Buff as a base for his fabulous timber pergola.
This product is the perfect base for bases of sheds and is a great low cost paving solution.
I’m sure Mr.Barrett is very proud of his project and cannot wait for the sunshine to arrive!

Mr.Stephen Hannan of Middlesbrough has really thought outside of the box with his unique garden design. He has created a fun shaded seating area looking out onto his Bradstone Stonemaster walkway.
Mr.Hannan has used a mix of all three shades to add variation and colour to his area.
The use of the larger 800x200 slabs are modern and well suited to the style within this space.
A perfect chill out spot!

Ms.Kerry Worthington of Kent has chosen to create a more authentic space using the Bradstone Old Riven in Autumn Bronze. The subtle hues of browns and greys are inspired by natural quarried stone.
As you can see from the photo, the paving has been laid with great care and compliments its surroundings with a rustic vibe.

In these photographs, Mr.Nathan Leese of Telford shows that practical can be attractive!
Mr.Leese has used the Bradstone Woburn Rumbled Kerb in Graphite to compliment the traditional styled Bradstone Woburn Rumbled Block Paving in Graphite.
The kerbs have been used to create a definite partition to each area with a rumbled finish to mimic a worn appearance.
A great combination which adds rustic flair to any property!

Our next entry is from Mrs.Anne-Marie Brady of Eastbourne.
She has used the Bradstone Old Town Circle in Weathered Limestone to produce a simply beautiful al fresco dining area.
The traditional style has character and charm with a mediterranean feel.
A great area for spending time with family and friends.

Mr.Mark Meadley from Merseyside sent images of his super creative design.
He has cleverly incorporated a water feature and bbq within his area using the Bradstone Pitched Walling in Buff. This is one of our most popular walling products as it suites both modern and more traditional spaces.
You can clearly see a lot of thought and workmanship has gone into this intricate yet functional design.A real show stopper!

Ms.Samantha Cottle of Greater London has created a sophisticated and sleek outdoor space using the Bradstone Cortile Porcelain Paving in Cream.
The clean lines look effortless again the oversized planters and contrasting grey bifolding doors.
The decorative aggregate gives texture along with an array of plants and shrubbery.
This entry shows how you can bring style to any size space.

In this photograph you will see Mr.Luke Homer’s entry from Dorset!
Mr.Homer has creatively produced a small patio in front of his beautiful garden room.
The use of the Bradstone Natural Sandstone Circle and Paving in Silver Grey is well suited to his abstract shape area.
The sandstone offers natural beauty with every slab featuring its own distinctive colours and shades.

Our next entry comes from Mr.Neil Simms of Derbyshire.
Mr.Simms has used a mix of various sizes of the Bradstone Old Town Paving in Grey-Green in his garden to show how manufactured products can look just as authentic as natural stone!
The Old Town range is perfect for customers seeking a rustic timeworn appearance that gives character with tooling marks and weathered edges.
The Grey-Green shade looks stunning against the property walling and contrasting charcoal border.

Last but certainly not least we have our final runner up Mr.Joce Matthews of Dorset!
Mr.Matthews has created a traditional patio and path area with a twist.
The Bradstone Old Riven Paving in three shades of Autumn Brown,Autumn Gold and Autumn Cotswold has been used to obtain a more unique eye catching design.
To seperate the two patios, Mr.Matthews has used a darker smaller size paving product to create an interesting walkway.

Congratulations to our winner and runners up!
