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.

Our new Bin Brochure has arrived!

We are proud to attach our new Bin Brochure with this NewsFlash, showcasing our vast selection of popular and versatile bins in steel, concrete & wood. This user friendly brochure, with great new photos and clean drawings, makes specifying our products even easier. Please contact our sales team for prices and any additional information.

WilsonStone regularly customises bins for specific applications, such as at the Mall of Africa development, where these custom bins, designed by Daniel Rebel Landscape Architects, have been laser cut with specific patterns and logos.

Thanks to these great pics from James Halle Landscapes, we are happy to showcase the gorgeous Babanango Valley Lodge, and James’ beautiful landscape design, where he used WilsonStone’s pots and planters in grey, with great effect, in this magnificent rural setting.

The Rio Bowl is used as a beautiful water feature and bird bath H: 560 Dia: 2100 

Who doesn’t want to dream of strolling along the promenade in Cape Town,
breathing in the sea air and enjoying the sounds of the waves. We thought we’d give you a glimpse of this beautiful scene, whilst showcasing our 350 Cubes and Leith. Trough in Charcoal, which have been cleverly used to brighten up this corner.

KEEP THE COLD AT BAY ‘ROUND A WARM OUTDOOR FIREPIT

We are always so pleased to receive pictures of our products after installation, and especially in use! Our Firepit completely comes into its own in this glamorous setting, and what a gorgeous way warm your guests whilst entertaining outdoors.

Size: H: 500 W: 280 from the centre to edge D: 1200mm

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.

Solutions for Solitary Seating & Social Distancing

With Social Distancing being the new normal, we have several stunning solutions for outdoor seating, which would automatically create the necessary space required to avoid close contact in an outdoor space or pause area.

The Drum Bollard and Noetzie Bollard double as clever solutions for demarkating areas whilst providing single-spaced seating. The Noetzie Bollard comes in smooth concrete, sandstone and exposed aggreate finishes.

The 250 Cube placed strategically between your chosen outdoor seating, will provide a decorative psycological barrier to keep people apart at a responsible social distance.

ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS MAKE A STUNNING STATEMENT

Be it beautiful bespoke pillars framing a grand front doorway; or custom cladding and corbels, WilsonStone can create a unique solution for the most stylish of designs. WilsonStone has a dedicated architectural design pattern shop that creates custom moulds for all moulded products. Our moulded products are created using re-constituted sandstone or glass reenforced cement (GRC)

 

 

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.

BECOME SELF SUFFICIENT
Plant Container Veggie Gardens

With more and more of us working from home, and wanting to become more self sufficient and “off the grid”, vegetable gardens solve that problem in a matter of weeks. What better way to maintain a neat, contained and beautiful looking veggie garden, than by using WilsonStone’s gorgeous range of timeless pots and troughs.

For a contemporary look – two great containers to start with are:

The Long Leith Trough (left)
(H:390 W:350 L:2000mm)

The Leith Trough (right)
(H:385 W:350 L:350mm)

To create a beautiful, traditional feel to your veggie garden, our Renaissance range of garden pots will simply groan with the abundance of home grown aubergines, tomatoes and fresh cabbages, creating beauty and bounty in exquisite containers.

The Solari Medi (H: 535 Top Diameter: 700mm)
The Kensington Trough Large (H: 600 W: 530 L: 1800mm)

 

 

WINTER VEGGIE BOUNTY

This autumn it’s a great time to start sowing broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts.These will be ready to plant from seedlings when the weather cools down. You can also still sow lettuce, Swiss chard, carrots, leeks, turnips and parsnips.

WilsonStone’s operations will be closed during the duration of the nationwide lockdown period, but the Showroom telephone & email will be diverted to the relevant persons, and we will be contactable on our cell phones and via email, should you have any queries, or require any quotes over this period. 

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES!

One of the most important things to ensure tomato success, is to use a big enough container. For one plant you’ll need a container which is at least 600 x 600mm or larger. Fill this with good quality potting soil and make sure there is good drainage. Tomatoes take approx. 20 to 30 days to reach maturity from when they first appear on the plant. Get planting and reap your rewards!

 

 

 

SITTING PRETTY

Why not create the perfect outdoor seating arrangement by combining a couple of these contemporary Corsica Benches to create an uber- cool pause area? Available in Grey, Sandstone, Charcoal & Limestone, these versatile outdoor benches are perfect for every setting.

WILSONSTONE DURING LOCKDOWN

We at WilsonStone, send our thoughts and solidarity to all of you over this difficult and trying time ahead, and wish you good health and safety.

With the swift action taken by our President, we can only hope that this global pandemic is controlled quickly in South Africa, so that we can all resume normal life and work as soon as possible.

We will keep you informed as to when we will again be operational via our News Flashes and email correspondence.

Thank you all for your understanding and co-operation, and all the very best for the coming months ahead.

Warmest wishes
The WilsonStone Team

WHAT’S ON TREND?

In keeping with international designs and trends, WilsonStone is on point with its comtemporary large planters, in various shapes and sizes, ideally suited to creating interesting, creative green barrier planting in any urban landscape.

THE DELAWARE BIN ROCKS IN RHINO WOOD

No metals, foreign oils, biocides or other toxic substances are introduced, making it completely people and pet friendly. The treatment process doubles the density of the wood. An increased hardness means less dents, scratches, and surface damage. We are also using Rhino Wood in our bench range and other products.

FIREPLACE SURROUNDS

This magnificent custom made Fireplace Surround is a great example of how we in our pattern shop, can come up with products to suit every requirement.

CORBELS Not only do we make custom fireplace surrounds, but custom window surrounds and other decorative elements to compliment every design, such as the magnificent corbels custom made for a recently completed home.

OUR KNIGHTSBRIDGE FIREPLACE IS FESTOONED AND READY FOR A FABULOUS FESTIVE SEASON!

Incredibly, the year is almost at it’s close, as we look ahead to a new decade, the “Roaring Twenties”, which are just around the corner…

Once more, we would like to thank all our clients for their ongoing support over this past year, and wish you all everything of the best for a wonderful holiday season ahead, and a well deserved rest over the holidays.

THE MAGESTIC DELAWARE BENCH

I recently enjoyed a fabulous morning at the regal old Johannesburg Country Club, and couldn’t resist taking a few pics of our magestic Delaware Benches, which are elegantly dotted along the edges of the manicured walkways and courtyards.

SUMMER EVENINGS MADE ALL THE MORE SPECIAL AROUND BESPOKE FIREPITS

Our Cape Town team worked their magic to create this gorgeous Coreten Steel Wood Stack to compliment our Fire Pit. Beautiful for starry nights, to sit outdoors and celebrate the coming New Year, we wish you all a peaceful and happy start to 2020.
