Winter Essentials from The Cobble Shop

Winter Essentials from The Cobble Shop

Crisp mornings, dark evenings, hazardous pavements and the flashing amber lights of gritters illuminating the streets; There’s no doubt about it: winter is here. Luckily, The Cobble Shop in Ayrshire has everything you need to survive the winter. From snow shovels and sledges to coal and wooden logs for the fire, we have you covered for the rough Scottish winter ahead.

This season comes with all manner of aches, pains and annoyances that can quite easily get you down and have you pining for warmer days. We imagine you’ve already had to go through the trouble of getting out of bed 15 minutes early to scrape the ice off your car’s windscreen. We’ve seen plenty of people standing in their dressing gowns attempting the task with an old credit card. Personally, we prefer to use de-icer and a fit-for-purpose scraper!

De-Icing Salt

To make things easier and safer for everyone this winter, we will be supplying de-icing salt, which is highly effective at clearing paths, steps, driveways and pavements of ice. The salt works quickly and will prevent any nasty falls. We recommend spreading some the in the evening time to ensure no ice is able to form through the night.

Our de-icing salt is available at the unbeatable price of £5.99 per bag and we will also be running a 4 for £20 promotion throughout winter. It can be a very dangerous time of year for people to get around, especially elderly people; it’s important we do all we can to help prevent accidents. We can also supply full pallets of de-icing salt for industrial or commercial use. Get in touch with us for more information.

We will be making great use of our favourite toy this winter to help us bag up all that salt: our on-site bagging plant. This state-of-the-art machinery has revolutionised our ability to bag and supply products for our customers.

Fun in the Snow

Winter doesn’t have to be all bad though, just look at your kids’ faces when a blizzard rolls through and earns them a day off school! For those epic snow days with the kids, you’re going to want a good sledge. We’ve made sure to pack ours with a few extra horse-power to make sure you beat all the other families on the hill!

Cosy by the Fire

One thing we can all agree upon during the winter is sitting by the fire, possibly with a hot chocolate or a glass of wine to hand. There’s truly nothing better after a freezing cold day at work, either on-site or crowding around the office’s only heater. The Cobble Shop have a ready supply of fuel for those cosy winter nights by the side of the fire. We have plenty of logs, kindling and coal to see you remain nice and toasty right through until March.

The Cobble Shop’s Winter essentials are available in-store at our Stewarton showroom. Please contact us if you have any questions.


Our New Bagging Plant

Self-improvement is never an easy thing. It takes dedication and a willingness to become a better version of yourself. The same is true of a growing business, even Ayrshire’s favourite supplier of garden aggregates and building materials is always trying to improve things. Recently, The Cobble Shop has taken a huge step in terms of productivity and efficacy. Ayrshire, meet our brand new toy!

This state-of-the-art high-speed robotic bagging machine is the latest member of the Cobble Shop family and will allow us to greatly increase our productivity and output. The bagging plant automatically weighs and doses product that is sent along a conveyer belt before being tightly sealed in a polyethylene bag and stacked on pallets by a high-tech robot arm.

The precision and “intelligence” of the robot arm is such that it can be programmed to stack pallets in a certain order, and automatically adjusts to ensure perfect balance is always maintained. The is able to load up two pallets at the one time, with each pallet being perfectly stacked and ready for removal by Cobble Shop employees.

The speed of throughput on the machine allows us to output up to 10 bags of material per minute (depending on the material in use). A far greater number than would be possible with man-power alone. The system is housed in a specially built construction on the premises of The Cobble Shop and will be used to bag chips, pebbles, cobbles and gravels.

The new machinery will open up all new job opportunities for people in the local community as the business expands and grows. More product means more people to deliver it, more clients to network with, more progress all round!

Moving into the wholesale market has long been one of our aspirations at The Cobble Shop and the new bagging plant will allow us to do this. The already excellent service we provide to our current consumer base will also improve, as we are able to work a lot more efficiently and bag more products in a faster time.

These are exciting times for The Cobble Shop. Adding this new equipment to our arsenal represents a massive leap forward for the company. None of which would be possible without your continued support and custom, of which we are truly appreciative!

Indian Sandstone

When thinking of India, one thinks of beauty and colour. The majestic Taj Mahal, the vivid colours of Holi Festival, and the rich, bright colours of the nation’s traditional dress. This vibrancy and richness of colour is no longer limited to the people of India though, and the Cobble Shop can now bring it directly into your garden!

By taking advantage of our ethically sourced Indian Sandstone paving slabs, which are mined in the north west region of Rajasthan in India, you can bring some of the rich colour of Indian culture to the UK.

Indian sandstone paving is an excellent way to decorate your garden and looks fantastic. As with any natural stone, no two pieces look exactly alike, which will give your garden a raw feel and a timeless charm.

Use slabs of Indian Sandstone to create areas of your garden to enjoy long summer evenings after a BBQ; or use the edging packs of sandstone to create pleasant effects around the perimeter of the garden. We even have circular Indian stone slabs, giving you the opportunity to use them as stepping stones for walkways, whether it be across the garden or as a path through chips and gravel stones.

There are three distinct colours to choose from: Modak, Raj Green and Raveena. Such a selection gives you the chance to mix and match, in order to create something unique to your garden.

As for sizes, each slab is calibrated to an even thickness to ensure level surfaces, and five mixed sizes are available.

Indian sandstone paving is naturally durable and can easily withstand the rugged British climate. Over time, the stones will show signs of weathering, as all-natural stones do. This is a part of the process of having any type of natural substance in your garden or home; adding to the appeal.

To learn more about Indian Sandstone Paving at The Cobble Shop, give us a call on 01560 485 413 or visit our website and say hello on our brand new live chat facility. Alternatively, you can pop in for a visit and we’ll be happy to help. We have many of our products on display at The Cobble Shop, giving you the chance to see them in a real-life environment, as opposed to in a photograph!


April Offers

It’s April, and it feels like it should be a touch more ‘Spring-like’, doesn’t it? We’re all still cooped up like freezing cold chickens in the office, praying for the sun to finally break through and give us some warmth. At least there’s no more snow though, always look on the bright side!

The latest news from Cobble Shop HQ is that we’ve added an extra range to the already excellent line up of available offers. Just as we had last month, we’re offering some great specials on our garden gravels and stones!

This month though, we’ve added the 20mm Polar White range into the mix!

This stunning white angular marble stone comes all the way from Spain and is the ultimate eye-catching aggregate for a striking modern finish. The clean white colour gives a light, bright and clean look, perfect for a contemporary garden setting.

One handy tip for using the Polar White stones is that they work excellently in small areas. Using it as a highlight stone is a great way to add character to your garden. In terms of contrasting, this stone works better than most, and looks fantastic with slate rockery and against any other coloured aggregates.

As well as this new addition, we still have five other kinds of garden stones on offer. Each stone on offer is a type of angular stone, and is designed to give stylish coverage to driveways, pathways and other landscaping projects. Angular stones are particularly beneficial as they won’t move too much, making them the perfect solution for driveways and pathways.

Other such stones on offer are Cotter’s Gold stones – which offer a vibrant mixture of colour, with golds and white stones intermixed to create the effect of similar to that of a beautiful pebble beach on a tropical island.

Rich red coloured stones and the natural browns of our Highland Toffee chips are great for creating a natural, timeless look. The Silver-Pink Granite pack offers a traditional granite stone look, interspersed with eye-catching pink stones to add that extra bit of style. Also on offer is the Ben Nevis granite stone chips, which offer a traditional, no-frills granite grey option for your garden.

With almost 30% off of each of these bags of decorative garden stones, this is the perfect opportunity to get to work on your summer landscaping and gardening project, saving you enormous amounts of money in the process.

To learn more about the monthly offers at The Cobble Shop, give us a call on 01560 485 413 or visit our website and check out our brand new live chat facility. Alternatively, you can pop in for a visit and we’ll be happy to help. We have many of our products on display at The Cobble Shop, giving you the chance to see each in a real-life environment, as opposed to on a photograph.

Time to Talk About Your Summer Garden Furniture

Spring has officially sprung! Finally, we can cast off the cold cobwebs of winter, disregard the layers upon layers of clothing and look forward to some sunshine! Well maybe not sunshine, this is Scotland after all; we can look forward to warmer weather though. It’s also time to start planning how we are going to rejuvenate our garden this summer!

We’re delighted to have the charming and innovative Zest range of products available to purchase at The Cobble Shop. This range is the perfect summer solution for your garden, and features everything from benches to gazebos to arbours.


The Zest range features all manner of stylish benches and garden dining furniture to ensure none of your guests will be fighting for somewhere to sit down. Nor will anyone have to stand around while holding their drink, burger and little plastic plate during your next BBQ!

These wooden picnic benches are the perfect place to sit down and eat during the warmer months and excellent when hosting guests. The Rose Round Picnic Table is one of our best items and can comfortably seat 8 guests.


Sometimes in the summer all you want to do is relax and enjoy the weather. As we’re living in Scotland, it’s crucial to make the most of each and every second of decent weather we’re afforded. For these occasions, the ones where you want to lay in the sun without being disturbed, we have some excellent ranges of arbours, pergolas and swinging chairs.

With its simple and elegant design, the Hollywood Swing is the perfect place to relax and will help you get the most out of your garden this summer.

For those who feel woozy at the thought of swinging back and forth all day, we’d recommend our gazebos and arbours. The Brighton Arbour brings bags of charm to the garden and is a fantastic place to host friends and even have a bite to eat in, using its fixed corner table.

Environmentally Friendly

This dynamic range comes from a multi award-winning supplier and is created using the highest quality materials while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly. At the Cobble Shop, we strive to keep our eco-footprint as low as possible and love working with suppliers with the same vision as us. The Zest range is created using a 0% timber waste policy and all water used in the manufacturing process is recycled rain water.

At the Cobble Shop, we have all the tools and expertise to ensure your garden is the place to be this summer. By September, you’ll definitely be known as ‘the hostess with the mostest’ if you come to The Cobble Shop for all your summer garden planning!

Clamshell Lorries

The more the merrier, as the old saying goes. Some like to push back against this claim – too many cooks spoil the broth – they’ll argue. But in our line of work, more means better. More staff means more ideas. More products equal more choice of garden aggregates. More space gives way to greater potential. And more additions to our fleet of trucks brings us, and the customer, many benefits.
With the addition of yet another Clamshell lorry to our fleet, our delivery times will be slashed. Not only that, but the amount of garden aggregates we are able to deliver will also go up. Our service continues to become faster, more streamlined and overall better than anyone else out there!
One of our long terms strategies here at the Cobble Shop is to continually reduce our carbon footprint. We do this by sourcing greener garden products and materials and improving our efficiency when it comes to things like deliveries and how we handle waste products.
With this new fleet of Clamshell Lorries, we are meeting our targets in these areas. The new vehicles are much more efficient and also give us the capability to collect and dispose of waste materials with the grab loader crane and 500 litre Clamshell Bucket on the back.
So, as well as delivering your garden aggregate products, we can now remove any waste materials you don’t want or need. This improves our overall service greatly, and leaves you, the customer, free from the burden of having to dispose of your own waste materials and unwanted garden trash.
In this ever greener and eco-friendlier world, we wanted to make sure The Cobble Shop was at the forefront of the fight and on the side of the environment. Each time we add a new lorry, it means we have to do less back and forth journeys to pick up materials, reducing our fuel consumption and once again helping the environment, as well as the customer.
As well as using these awesome machines for ourselves, we want everyone to know that they’re also available for hire, with a driver. So, if you’ve got any kind of garden or industrial project which could benefit from the use of one of our Clamshell Lorries, give us a call and we can arrange hiring out the vehicles for you.
As with everything here at the Cobble Shop, we like to add our own touch to it. This goes for our Clamshell Lorries too, which you will see decorated in our signature branding! Give our drivers a wave when you see us out and about!
If you’d like to know more about our services, products or to enquire about hiring a clamshell lorry, please call 01560 485413 or email [email protected]

March 2018 Special Offers

With the seemingly relentless ‘Beast from the East’ finally leaving us alone, it’s time to get back to normality here in Scotland.

What’s the Story with Tobermore?

Wouldn’t you like to know? Sorry, I had to do that. The only thing Tobermore has in common with the popular Scottish kids’ TV show is its vibrant range of colours, but more on that later. Tobermore Paving is one of our most exciting new products. Capable of creating stunning sections of walling, paving, edging and steps in your garden. Here’s why you should consider Tobermore products before you begin your next garden project!

Each and every one of their products is manufactured in the United Kingdom, using materials sourced largely from their own quarry.

Eco Friendly Paving

It’s very important to remain environmentally aware nowadays. This is something we at The Cobble Shop place great importance on when it comes to the products we choose to sell, the machinery we choose to operate and the delivery trucks we choose to drive.

Tobermore find this type of thing important too, offering a range of eco-products which make use of a lot of recycled content.

New Solar Range at The Cobble Shop

Climate change is a very real issue. Haven’t you been listening to Leonardo Di Caprio? Well, remember last year when he briefly stopped by Scotland for a conference? He also popped down to Ayrshire and swung by the Cobble Shop to tell us the importance of renewable energy and most importantly: solar lighting!

Adding some solar lighting to your home or garden set up can have both practical and aesthetic benefits. Security is one of the main reasons people have lighting at their home, to help deter any would-be intruders attempting to use the cover of darkness to break into your house.

Aesthetically, you might just need a new garden light for when you or a pet needs to go out into the garden at night. Deck lights, path lights and solar lights are also an excellent way to help improve the look and feel of your garden. Those late outdoor Summer evenings with a glass of wine will be made all the better with some ambiance-enhancing, garden lighting.

The Cobble Shop is bringing in a range of different solar lighting products to help improve the security and charm of our customers’ gardens. There’s a huge and varied range of Solar Powered Lighting options available at The Cobble Shop, with the lights coming in the form of spot lights, mounted wall lights and different shaped decking lights; as well as post lights to help illuminate a path.

Many of the solar lighting fittings come with motion sensors, which act as excellent security deterrents and will save you having to switch lights on and off each time you wish to use them. Alternatively we also have options with automatic timers on them, to help keep your garden lit during the night.

What are the benefits of Solar Powered Lights?

Opting for Solar Powered Lighting has a number of different benefits: for starters, you won’t have to worry about an astronomical electricity bill! Despite not being connected to the mains, these solar lights can run for up to 12 hours!

Other benefits include that they WILL work in Winter, despite some of the myths out there and despite the (unfortunate) fact that Scotland isn’t the most sun-blessed country in the world at the best of times!

Another age-old myth about solar lighting is that the light isn’t powerful, we beg to disagree, and invite you to come and ask in store about the products and see for yourself just how impressive these Solar Lights are!

The Cobble Shop only provides the highest quality, powerful, weather-resistant and stylish solar lighting fittings, and with everything we provide, we guarantee we won’t be beaten on value for money or customer service!

P.s Leo DiCaprio didn’t really visit The Cobble Shop, but he’s welcome to any time… we’ll get the kettle on!

Porcelain Paving Gaining Popularity in Scotland

Keeping up with trends is tough. Whether it be with fashion, music, the arts, or even design and decor. Unfortunately, we can’t tell you which colour T-shirt you should be wearing this season – although this being Ayrshire we’d recommend something warm! – but we do know a thing or two about the latest goings on in the world of gardening and landscaping!
One such product currently soaring in popularity in Scotland is porcelain. Having been popular down south for a little while, the demand for porcelain paving, slabs and tiles has been making its way north of the border and quickly gaining popularity in Scotland – especially around the Glasgow area.

So why this sudden surge in interest? And what makes it a better option than natural stone, concrete or ceramic? Let’s have a look…
What are the benefits of porcelain paving?


Who wants to spend their weekends treating tiles and worrying about algae or moss forming? Doesn’t sound like much fun, does it? Thankfully with porcelain paving this isn’t an issue. It’s resistant to stains and its incredibly low porosity (<0.1%) level means you needn’t worry about any of the problems that can arise from the absorption of moisture.


Porcelain is highly resistant to just about anything, from the weather (including sunlight – for the lovers of black finishes) to chemicals such as oils, plant fertilizers, salts and even acids. General wear and tear certainly won’t be an issue when you opt for porcelain in the garden.

Variety and Look

As well as the hard-wearing nature of porcelain, it also comes in a multitude of different styles. The variety of porcelain slabs is virtually limitless and you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to making your decision. A porcelain finish will also give a much more sophisticated feel to an area, something that other materials can’t match.


Porcelain at The Cobble Shop

We pride ourselves on making sure we do everything we can to aid our customers, so we set up a porcelain paving demo area at The Cobble Shop in Stewarton! This gives you the opportunity to see for yourself what porcelain paving looks and feels like when it’s actually laid. It’s one thing to see photos of porcelain paving online, but experiencing it in a purpose-built display area helps you to better appreciate the true quality and feel of a porcelain installation.

At The Cobble Shop, we know everything there is to know and more about porcelain. So if you’re thinking about porcelain paving for your garden or work premises, come to the experts. No one can match us on knowledge, experience or value for money. We’re also pretty sure no one can beat the customer service experience you will receive from our helpful and friendly staff!

And just as with all our other products, we offer free delivery in Ayrshire, Glasgow, East Kilbride and Paisley! So pop down, check out demo area and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
