Stoneworld Oxfordshire has been supplying the landscaping industry with high quality stone and porcelain for more than 20 years. In that time, the onsite workshop has seen constant reinvestment and upgrades, allowing clients to order unique, made to measure solutions for their projects.
Now, Stoneworld has created its first ever seminar developed specifically for landscapers and garden designers, and will be holding an all access open day to celebrate.
The course has been developed to meet the needs of high-level landscapers and garden designers working with discerning clients, complex specifications and innovative designs.
Stoneworld director Rob Parker explains: “We have worked with landscaping professionals for many years, offering advice and support to ensure successful projects. We decided that the best way to share our answers was to create a seminar which could give insight into the use of stone in hard landscaping, and the considerations which accompany it.”
Indeed, the event and seminar will seek to share knowledge and experience of successful projects, and examples of some common considerations which landscapers should be approaching and their solutions.
The seminar will contain recommendations and case studies from both sides of the industry, with renowned landscaping expert Alan Sargent collaborating on the project, offering unmatched insight developed over decades as one of the leading voices in landscaping and garden design.
Building on the combined experience of Stoneworld and Sargent, the material will deliver considerations when specifying stone, such as understanding technical data, stone performance and variation, and overall impact in final projects. The seminar promises a unique perspective linking every stage of the process of working with natural stone, from quarry to workshop, to project handover.
In addition to the landscaping seminar, guests will also receive a tour of the Stoneworld workshop and facilities, including a look at its state-of-the-art machinery such as a seven axis stone carving robot, to see how the stone is fabricated to specification. Guided by Stoneworld director Rob Parker, the tour will include explanations and insight into the processes involved in making bespoke stone, treads and copings and the wide variety of landscaping features that are created in the workshop; from CAD software and systems, to carving, edging and polishing. The day will end with lunch and a Q&A with the Stoneworld team.
