The classic weathered appearance and natural looks of Fairford Stone Decorative Concrete Paving provide for a timeless patio which is suitable for relaxing or entertaining.
The concrete slabs are designed to look like hewn stone and have subtle shallow riven surfaces. The shallow riven profile provides an ideal base for your patio furniture ensuring that tables and chairs will sit firmly on the paving.
The Fairford decorative concrete paving range has been designed to accommodate all budgets whilst offering a real-stone look and feel. They have classic weathered styling and this presents a timeless appearance, giving your patio will an ageless charm.
As well as their shallow riven finish, the surface of these slabs is also lightly textured to provide better anti-slip performance and grip under-foot.
The Fairford concrete slabs are part of Bekstone's Premium Range of decorative concrete paving, with the Fairford Collection being available in three colours with mixed-size contractors packs, single-sized packs and paving circle kits.
Because Fairford paving is available with three different size-format slabs plus the circle and squaring-off kits slabs, it is an incredibly versatile paving collection that will meet the needs of your patio and garden designs.
Predictable Colour & Tones
The Fairford slabs will give your patio textually a consistent look and feel that closely mimics riven natural stone, but additionally, they also offer uniform colour and tone. Because these slabs are manufactured rather than quarried their aesthetics are factory-controlled - and so they provide precise and consistent colour and tonal control - meaning you get exactly the look and feel you were expecting.
This colour pigment uniformity and aesthetic control/predictability are the main performance advantages presented by concrete paving over natural stone paving. There are no unexpected colours, hues or natural variation as found in real stone, so your garden will appear exactly as you envisage it.

To install and lay concrete patio paving slabs, you'll need to do the following steps:
To calculate the areas of paving in square-metres (m2), the amount of sub-base hardcore or the amount of sand and cement you'll need for the mortar mix bedding course, please refer to our paving calculators.

Concrete is a porous material and contains tiny capillaries and micro-fissures throughout its structure. Consequently, concrete paving is susceptible to water-based chemical erosion (acidic corrosion), physical erosion (frost action), and from staining from waterborne grime, salts and other mineral and particulate deposits. Therefore, as the UK has high winter humidity (generally 80-90%) and damp conditions are the norm, we recommend that you help protect and elongate the life of your paving by sealing the slabs against the water/damp based issues. Our impregnating sealers are designed to enter the capillaries and micro-fissures in the slabs, blocking those spaces to prevent water entering the paving.
In addition to sealing the slabs, we recommend ensuring you brush away leaves, dirt and other detritus regularly, especially in the autumn and winter when leaves, twigs, seeds and other windfall materials are likely to fall on your patio. If left on your paving, especially if damp, and worse still, allowed to rot down and become mulch-like, your paving will almost certainly acquire brown stains from the release of tannins from the windfall materials (think a used tea bag left on a kitchen counter for a model of what will happen).
As well as brushing off dirt and windfall materials, give your patio a hose down with water every so often. Use a low-pressure hose or keep any jet-wash far enough away from the slabs to ensure you don't damage them with the high-pressure water jet. For more stubborn stains and the build-up of grime, we recommend using a specialist non-acidic patio cleaner.
