Lichen Remover For Paving

Are you fed up with trying to remove Lichen off of your patio?

Barton Fields are pleased to offer this fantastic, new and innovative product

For many years now, the team here at Barton Fields have been asked for a suitable cleaning product to tackle the black spots that attach and embed into natural stone paving, concrete slabs and block paving. The honest answer has always been 'there is no real, decent product that exists'!

We now have the answer....

The Patio Black Spot Remover Company have had 30 years experience in the cleaning and restoration of stonework. They have specifically formulated the patio black spot remover to restore the original colour of your stonework, resolving this problem once and for all.

The correct name for these black spots is Lichen... ' a simple slow growing plant that forms a low crust-like, leaf-like, or branching growth on rocks, walls, trees etc'  (including paving surfaces)

The patio black spot remover will eradicate the black spots!!




We can all appreciate that the black spot remover isn't a cheap product IF it doesn't do what it says on the tin. This is why the team at Barton Fields Patio Centre requested a demonstration on our own natural stone displays. With our own eyes we have witnessed the impact and success of the product, removing lichens off of the paving. 





For full details of the product, please visit    Barton Fields Web Site

Driveway Slabs

Welcome to Barton Fields latest blog featuring our 60mm thick Drive flags, ideal for patios and drives.

For many years we have been asked for flags / slabs that are suitable for use on a driveway (as opposed to block paving) and have struggled to know what to suggest. We have supplied natural stone paving as well as other flags for drives with the knowledge that the contractor installing the product is doing so on a very well prepared sub-base. A sub-base constructed to allow for flags that
are sometimes only 30-40mm thick.

Now available on the market and supplied through Barton Fields are these stunning and stylish flag stones that are manufactured 60mm thick. They are available in a choice of colours and in a mix of 4 slab sizes. Not only that, they are also manufactured with nibs / spacers on the side of the flag thus can be installed on a sand screed (like a block paver). This allows for a quick and easy installation process as opposed laying flags on a full mortar bed.

Here we have the Silver Granite colour, bordered with a 60mm Black shot-blasted paver.

And the beautiful Black Granite, bordered with a 60mm Silver shot-blasted paver.

The actual finish of the slabs are described as curled. This is like a riven effect that are smooth to touch, almost like a natural stone that has weathered smooth over a period of many years.

Here is an image of the Silver and Black laid together, a stunning effect.

As well as the very attractive 'Granite effect' range, the drive slabs are also offered in other colours.

Rustic is a blend of autumn colours, red/buff & charcoal, whilst the Golden Blend is a mix of brown and buff.

The drive flag is also very popular for use on a patio or for scenarios whereby an area is driven on very occasionally. They are also a popular choice for interesting designs mixing drive flags and blocks together.

More information can be seen on our Barton Fields website :-

Terracotta Paving Slabs / Tiles

Terracotta Paving Slabs (or tiles) are the perfect product for a patio / terrace area with a Mediterranean theme.

Often used in conjunction with white rendered walls, terracotta planters, architectural exotic planting and decorative white chippings / pebbles and cobbles.

It can be a problem for people to find suitable products to replicate the look of genuine terracotta tiles in the UK. Ceramic tiles are commonly used with can be very thin and can create a slip hazard when wet due to the glazed finish . Also, genuine terracotta tiles used externally can be a problem due to UK weather climate and the severe frosts we can experience.

Reclaimed Looking Bricks, new bricks made to look old.

So you want to construct a garden wall, garage, house or whatever structure you have in mind, and you would like to use a brick with an aged, reclaimed look. The obvious choice would be to shop around for a reclaimed brick - there are hundreds of recliamed yards throuought the Uk and i would imagine that most would stock a good selection of reclaimed bricks, a vast range of colours textures and styles.

Alternatively, have you considered using a new brick that has been manufactured to give the appearance of a reclaimed brick. A new, reclaimed looking brick. Why would you do this?

Using a new brick can eliminate the potential for finding poor quality reclaimed bricks often stacked in the middle of a pallet (where they cannot be first seen). They can offer a more consistant option so you know what you are dealing with. With the new manufactured bricks made to look old, you still have a choice of colour and size - made available in 65mm and 73mm.

The Old Lanacashire Mill Brick - a new brick manufactured with an aged appearance by way of a tumbled finish and antique looking colour variation.

The Derbyshire Antique Blend - a beautiful blend of colour including the white paint so often seen im many reclaimed bricks.

Hopefully this short blog can give you an insight into the alternative reclaimed style bricks on the market. You can go to for more information.
