Natural Landscaping Materials

At Rivar Sand and Gravel we love to see the wide range of natural landscaping materials that we stock work in harmony with the existing landscape. After all, that’s where they came from.

Few people could dispute that our top quality natural landscaping materials possess a charm and radiance that manmade goods often lack.

Rivar Sand and Gravel’s depots in Windlesham, Tadley and Newbury offer a plethora of options at varying budgets so that our landscaping clients, DIY or commercial, can find just the right match for their needs and aspirations.

Our friendly team are highly knowledgeable so whilst you try to decide which products you’d like to take away (or have delivered) feel free to ask us as many questions as you want. That’s what we’re here for, to help you achieve the desired look with functionality and traffic stopping panache.

We have new and reclaimed timber sleepers which can be used for benches and climbing poles as readily as they can for any of the options listed above. A railway sleeper may still have oil and creosote from its former occupation, this adds a special historical air to your landscaping.

Hardwood sleepers are richly coloured and possess strength. New oak and pine timber sleepers are refreshing and deliver aesthetic appeal and longevity.

10mm and 20-5mm South Cerney Gravel is locally sourced and a resounding favourite with clients. Semi rounded and multi-functional, it’s inexpensive, easy to install and to maintain. In the winter months it offers a secure textured foothold. 10mm South Cerney Gravel is also known as pea gravel South Cerney Gravel.

If you intend to utilise gravel over planted spaces then it’s best to use a layer of membrane over the soil so that both the membrane and the top layer, gravel, can stop weeds from appearing.

The landscaping bark that we stock is a splendid product taken from sustainable sources which are managed by the Forest Stewardship Council. Landscaping bark is not expensive but it lasts a long time, only needing an occasional top up. It protects plants from snow, ice and the strong sun and, happily for non-enthusiastic gardeners, it halts the progress of weeds.

Sandstone paving is quarried in India and each slab has its own character and patterning thanks to the work of nature across a few millennia. This landscaping material looks divine, opulent and charms easily. It’s available in several shades and can be laid in circles or traditional slabs to add personality to the exterior of your property.

Natural products are a wonderful investment, ask us for more details.
