Landscaping Materials for Winter Joy

Make Your Garden Full of Life This Winter

Picture of a Winter Garden

Your exterior space does not have to look listless or unloved during the bleakest months of the year.

Although many plants and trees are waiting to feel the warmth in the soil before they spring in to life there’s no reason why the landscaping materials in your commercial or domestic outdoor room can’t inspire, bring joy and invigorate.

Gardens, yards, driveways and communal areas are used and viewed every day. Make your surroundings the best they can be with our assistance. At Rivar Sand and Gravel we have delightful landscaping materials, product ranges and a hard-earned top-notch reputation.

We deliver excellence. Why not pop in to one of our outlets and enjoy the energising, soothing, contrasting and complimentary options that promise to bring a smile to your face during the darkest season.


Garden centre near me?

Yes, we have outlets in Tadley, Windlesham and Newbury which feature an array of landscaping solutions from economic to decadent, stone and gravel to linear paving, landscaping bark to artificial turf.

Our dedicated team are experts in their field so you can be sure that any advice we offer has qualifications and substantial knowledge to back it up. We’ll tell you if the landscaping materials meet your functionality and aesthetic wish list. As we don’t stock any product that doesn’t meet our high expectations, whatever you choose for your exterior space’s design, durability, quality and unique patterning on natural products are guaranteed.

Landscaping materials considerations:

  • Aesthetic appeal.
  • Functionality.
  • Safety.
  • Cost effectiveness.
  • Longevity
  • Versatility.
  • Ongoing maintenance requirements.
  • Installation skill level.
  • Ancillary products e.g. weed matting/membrane or a strong framework base for stone and gravel.
  • Orders can be delivered to site or taken away. Whatever works best for you, we’ll accommodate your needs.

Stone and gravel add style and winter safety

Winter’s ice, snow, frost, fallen leaves settled in to crevices plus algae and moss could prove dangerous. Flat surfaces offer a solid base for them to latch on to but stone and gravel solutions are uneven and in small chips of 10mm or 20mm, this ensures transit is safer around the property.

20mm stone and gravel is recommended for grip because 10mm can compact more readily which lessens the benefits.

Toffee Gravel: Traditional design.

  • 20mm Thames Valley Flint quarried locally.
  • Comforting brown, white and toffee gravel.
  • Enduring.

Flamingo Gravel: Modern, vibrant schemes.

  • 20mm angular chips.
  • Blue, white, green and pink gravel.
  • Quartz content offers sparkle.

Two natural paving options:

Our slate natural paving is sublime, available in black or silver grey and offers charm with unquestionable value for money.

Prices start at just £3.16 per slate paving for the 300mm x 300mm.

Global Stone’s 2.8m Indian sandstone circle in Modak Rose features a central circle and three rings. Its warming pinks will fight off your winter blues, its unique patterning captivates. Sandstone paving through market leaders is ethically sourced, this item is competitively priced at £435, and spectacular.
