Built to last

A number of other firms use concrete sub-bases to save costs.  Here you can see one installed by a well-known firm in the Coleraine area.  The problems with using concrete are:

  • It absorbs water which, when cold, freezes and cracks the sub-base

  • It is easily damaged by strimmers or mowers

  • It is harder to clean than granite and looks second-rate



We only ever use Mourne granite for our sub-bases for these reasons.  We have found that:

  • Granite is much easier kept clean and maintained than concrete

  • Granite is impervious to the frost

  • Our sub-bases are not damaged by strimmers or mowers
