Grey Paddlestones are large, roughly disc shaped pieces of quartzite produced by exhaustive tumbling to form soft, rounded edges. These are very similar to natural river worn paddlestones, but because they are not extracted from rivers or beaches the natural environment is not effected.
With a little selection it is quite easy to lay horizontal rows to create a modern contemporary dry stone wall, which is not just a great focal point but also provides an ideal micro habitat with lots of small holes and cracks for insects.
Stocked in a beautiful golden yellow or smokey black/grey colour, they are extremely eye catching and can be used in both private gardens and public landscapes as walling. Other uses include, laid flat as paving and stepping stones, path and pond edges, water features and waterfall ledges.
