I thought I would share some info about my step sister's topiary nursery, especially as it has been active at the top end of the market for more than a decade but hard landscaping and soft landscaping tends only to come 
together on site. Wendy and Neat's nursery, Crown Topiary, is based at 234 North Road  Hertford, SG14 2PW the phone number is 01992 501055 and their web site is .
If topiary is something you are looking for, either for yourself or a client I recommend you look at the service Wendy and Neat offer

Granite steps and Limestone pier caps

As well as buying yorkstone paving I do occasionally buy associated items like the white granite steps in the top picture above which are 6" x 12" in section, in lengths up to 3 metres. The limestone pier cap which is one of  three is 1.6 metres long by 700mm wide by 150mm thick at the edges. The lower picture is of a smaller limestone cap again I have three of these, each one is 900mm long by 600mm wide and 150mm thick at the edges.

 And, I am still lucky enough to reclaim the nicest yorkstone paving. We reclaimed these, pictured below, from a garden but because they are generally between 3 and 4 inches thick I believe they were originally produced for street paving and are now ready to be used again, which, I think demonstrates the sustainable and timeless beauty of York stone paving.
