Hardscape’s Materials Labs are state-of-the-art spaces dedicated to inspiration, advice and networking for landscape architects, designers and clients involved in hard landscaping specifications.

Each Materials Lab in every one of our locations at Bolton HQ, Stratford-upon-Avon, Edinburgh, London and Belfast, showcases the range of natural and man-made, ethically-sourced materials available from Hardscape. The space at each venue can be used to view and discuss different material-types prior to initial sampling and specification.

At each of the venues there is always a member of the Hardscape’s technical team on hand to provide insights into the features of the different materials and capabilities of Hardscape’s high-tech in-house machinery, including etching, sandblasting, CNC, waterjet-cutting and hi-tech laser technology.

  • Discover how to bring your creative vision to life & be inspired by award-winning Artscape schemes.
  • Find out how you can convince your client to invest in braver, more visionary solutions.
  • Explore & learn more about different stones and materials and see them brought to life with our state-of-the-art 3D technology.
  • Find out more about our other inspirational and informative events, workshops and CPDs planned.

The Materials Lab is a unique resource for landscape architects to explore, be inspired by and get expert advice on materials. We are passionate about supplying quality materials and unbiased support to the industry and we hope that the Materials Lab will be a ‘go-to’ for hard landscaping inspiration to bring creative visions to life.
