Our plant markers are produced using the very finest Welsh, reclaimed roofing slate. It is mainly from Blaenau Ffestiniog where it has been quarried, sawn into blocks and split by hand and finally cut to size by us. The mud and silt which forms this slate was laid down during Ordovician geological period, approximately 450 million years ago.
The designs we put onto our slateware are only ever sandblasted, (they are NEVER printed, painted or put through a laser etcher). We believe that the finest quality slate deserves to be engraved by a skilled craftsman and not a computer. Every one of our engraved garden markers is produced individually, so we can ensure the best quality product will last a lifetime and can take pride of place in your garden.
Due to the fact that all our items are produced individually, we are more than happy to engrave custom designs just for you. We don’t require bulk orders and our minimum order for custom garden markers is 8 items, although these can all feature different wording.
