Prices Paving give something back to nature!
We import natural stone. We love stone. We literally pave the way to stone heaven. Our slogan is ‘making every floor a stone floor’ for Pete’s sake. Well not this one. As homage to all things natural, this is our very own Nature Reserve, here at the showroom in Snape.
This reserve is our way of giving something back to the environment, because despite what you might assume, we are actually nature lovers.
Our nature reserve is a self-sufficient cycle which provides food and shelter for wildlife. Within it, we have planted buddleia and lavender which typically attract bees and insects. Not only are bees essential to help prevent the end of the world but they pollinate the grassland encouraging wild flowers to flourish. All the insects will attract birds, for which we have put up lots of nesting boxes, and frogs for which we have an overflow bogland area planted with reeds and bullrushes. There is an orchard at the back of the paddock which we have planted with cherry, apple and pear trees. These will be only lightly harvested to allow fallen fruit to decay providing food for birds and insects, and their nutrients to be recycled into the earth. Attracting local schools for trips out to learn about all things natural!
We have been blessed with good luck over the years to allow us to develop a thriving business. To show our gratitude this nature reserve is our contribution the environment, and rather than using the space for milking profits, we have considered our carbon footprint first. Of course the dinosaurs don’t quite fit into the food cycle considering they are from a different age but they are an integral feature for added awesomeness.
