“Without rain there would be no rainbows”

We opened our doors for business this morning on the first working day of 2021 in the pouring rain! In many cultures, rain represents good luck – a cleansing of sorts, and new beginnings. With this in mind, we wish our clients the very best for 2021 and hope that this year brings renewed strength, health, and prosperity to you all, both personally and in business. We will continue to strive to provide service excellence and great products, as we work with you on projects going forward into the year.

Nothing can dampen the spirits when there’s a crackling fire to create warmth and atmosphere. The Rio Bowl (above) in limestone, has been cleverly converted into a Fire Pit, with Leith Troughs creating a sleek border to the decked area.

 

WilsonStone’s Bollards come in every shape and size, in both steel and concrete. Bollards are a very necessary component in most urban environments, and we have something to suit every design and urban space. Check out our comprehensive range at www.wilsonstone.co.za

Custom bike racks also form an integral element to urban design, essential for schools, universities, and shopping malls. WilsonStone regularly manufactures custom bike racks, such as our stainless-steel bike rack, and our colorful circular bike racks, designed by Daniel Rebel Landscape Architects, for the Mall of Africa.

Two great bollards (standard to our range) which double as bike racks, are the Vatican Bollard and the Quayside Bollard. These beautiful bollards were created specifically to satisfy both requirements, with their sleek, sophisticated designs enhancing any sidewalk.

September Newsflash

Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”… 
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…

– Frances Hodgson Burnett

WilsonStone’s Westbury Urns overflow with cascading greenery and budding flowers, framing the rest area in this tranquil garden idyll, created by Gorgeous Gardens.

The Kensington Trough in terracotta bursts with colour, and teamed with the Solari Medi, these two traditional pots are perfect for entrance-ways, patios or feature pots in gardens.

The Windsor Bowl in limestone cradles a subtle display of baby agapanthus.

For sprucing up entrances and bringing patios to life, plant gorgeous containers with lobelia, nemesia, pansy or primula. In shadier spots, pots of clivia, fuchsia, primula and cineraria are great to plant this spring.

This month’s heroes are these tried and trusted old favourites!

We often showcase WilsonStone’s newer, more exciting products, hot off the design boards and pattern shop, but this month we give credit to the unsung heroes in our range. These useful, practical but important products, are great for parks and recreational spaces.

The OXFORD REST SET is an ideal, hardy concrete bench and table combo – great for any outdoor space. The bench seats can also be finished in Granatus wood, to create a different look and feel.

The HERMANUS BRAAI (below) is another firm favorite and provides a simple solution for braai areas in bush settings or in parks. Made in exposed aggregate, this little braai is very hardwearing.

The CLIFTON DRINKING FOUNTAIN (above) provides the perfect solution for park runners to catch their breath and take a well-deserved drink during a long run.

The GOSPORT BENCH (left) made with a sturdy exposed aggregate base and Granatus wood seat and backrest, is a simple, and elegant solution for park bench seating, as is the WESTLAKE BENCH (below) made from Granatus wood and Galvanised Steel base, teamed here with the MAYFAIR SWING BIN.

News Flash – May 2020

To all our friends in business, we wish you ongoing good health, fortitude, and positivity as some of us re-open our doors for business now that we have entered Level 4 of the Lockdown Process, in the face of this unprecedented global pandemic.

WilsonStone re-opened our manufacturing during Level 4 Lockdown as of 1st May. Our factory will be operating with different protocols, a reduced labour force, and strict social distancing in place. We will also be constantly monitoring the protocols of different Lockdown Phases, so manufacturing will be wholly dependent on these guidelines.

We are all in the same boat, trying our best to navigate our way through these uncertain times, whilst trying to re-boot the economy by re-opening our places of work in the safest, and most socially responsible way possible.

Our sales team are all working and are contactable via email and phone, and we invite enquiries, calls, and quote requests as per usual.

HOT OFF THE PRESS

Our new Fireplace Surround Brochure showcases our 20 most popular and timeless Fireplace Surrounds. Elegance in the form of a beautiful fireplace exudes warmth and joy to every home. What better way to beat the lockdown blues but revamping the heart of the home with one of our beautiful architectural fireplace surrounds.

During lockdown, we have been focusing on re-vamping our Fireplace Surrounds. Our Fireplace Surrounds are standard, but like most items, can be designed and manufactured to specification for special projects, as well as custom Built-in Braai Surronds.

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL BINS

We have not been letting the grass grow under our feet during this lockdown phase, so are also underway with revamping our bin range. We have looked carefully at our most popular bins, and then added some fabulous new contemporary bins to the range, which we are excited to share with you!

So rather than keep you in suspense for another month, here are some of the new bins which will be launched shortly!

With environmental awareness growing by the day, it is essential that we provide an elegant solution to the separation of general waste from recyclable waste. We have come up with this clever solution that works in any and every retail and commercial setting. Our recycling Bins can now be customized with laser-cut logos, and are made in stainless steel or galvanized steel in an elegant GRC frame.
