Our slate urns and planters are handcrafted using the same technique that has been used to build dry stone walls for many years. The pieces of slate that are to create the urns are all unique, this makes the shape of each urn and planter different.

The outside layer is made up of natural reclaimed slate which is then set into a cement inner lining - this makes the collection frost resistant and suitable for all weathers. Whether you plant with a contemporary planting pallet, or a more formal one, you can be sure to achieve a sophisticated aesthetic with one of these ornamental slate planters or urns.

Urns and planters can be purchased in one of the standard sizes listed below, or made bespoke to requirements. When planted up, these pieces are great for filling small or awkward spaces, or to soften hard lines. Alternatively, use 2 as a pair to set off an entrance or front door.

Natural Slate Water Features


Our slate water features are hand crafted using natural slate, taking the inspiration from the technique that has been used to build stonewalls over the centuries. The outside layer of our water features is made up of natural slate which is then set into a cement inner lining. This makes the pieces frost resistant and hard wearing in all seasons.

We have been making natural slate water features for over 17 years and have a great wealth of building knowledge as the product range has grown. There are currently 3 variations of purchase from the slate water feature collection available, although we are always working on other products continuously. You can choose from our round slate ball, the round slate ball with square or round base or the slate pillar and base.

Round Slate Balls

Our handmade slate ball water features each have their own unique character and charm which is guaranteed to spark interest in your garden. There are many options to suit gardens of different sizes and to fit with your budget. We know manufacture 6 different sizes of ball, ranging from 50cm diameter through to our biggest ball which is 1.5m diameter.

The slate balls are available on their own or with a matching base, making them self-contained. You can choose to order the ball and base for delivery on their own or we can supply and install your water feature for you, generally for larger sizes. We have now supplied and installed a great number of these stunning slate balls throughout the UK.

The slate balls on their own start from £1250 upwards. Standard delivery is £75 per pallet anywhere in the UK and installation can be quoted for on an individual basis.


Slate Pillars

The slate pillars also make a significant impact in any garden; they are visually attractive and add to the sense of tranquillity in your garden. We currently produce two sizes of pillar which is 70cm tall or the larger one at 1m, perfect for gardens where space it at a premium. The small pillar water feature is available for delivery across the UK and costs £950 including vat.

The tranquillity of cool, clear water in an outside space refreshes the soul and is a superb tool for relaxation. Couple this with the gentle flutter of wings and you’ve immediately created a serene, soothing outside space.
