How to joint a patio - EASY Joint on YouTube

Friday, 31 March 2017 09:55:50 Europe/London

EASY Joint really is easy...

A wonderful 87 year old customer phoned me from Barrow in Furness, Cumbria, earlier this week and he asked me if I thought he would be able to use EASYJoint for his patio as it needed rejointing or repointing.

His name is Raymond and we discussed the benefits of EASY Joint at length. Raymond wondered how straightforward it is to use and I explained that you just brush it into the paving joints. I also mentioned that because there's no mixing involved, the paving compound colours stay consistent and that there are 5 very unique colours to suit all different types of natural stone and paving,  

I also mentioned the main benefit of using EASYJoint is that as long as you follow the Azpects mantra 'The Wetter the Better' you'll be OK. Of course, with professional landscapers and builders time is very much of the essence, but with DIY enthusiasts the important issue is getting a consistent, strong and dependable finish!

The fact that Raymond is 87 years old and still willing to take on such a task is very commendable and I was very keen to help him out as much as I possibly could.

I suggested that he checked out the Azpects video on YouTube for the EASY Joint usage directions, 'How to Joint a Patio' shows exactly how easy the product is to use. I've had a number of customers leave comments about EASY Joint being just as simple to use as it looks on the Azpects YouTube video and I was confident that once Raymond had seen the video he would have a good idea if he could do it or not.

The next day Raymond ordered his 2 tubs of Stone Grey online (he's Internet and E-commerce savvy too) after he'd watched the Azpects video and that inspired me to write this post. I spoke to him yesterday, his tubs of EASY Joint arrived the day after he ordered and he's looking forward to his forthcoming landscaping project.

Want to see just how easy EASY Joint really is?

Limestone - Back to Black Colour Enhancer

Monday, 20 March 2017 14:47:47 Europe/London

Back to Black Limestone Solution

Natural limestone is a very popular stone for patios and paving but unfortunately, it can soon lose its great natural look. Yes, sorry everyone, but it can fade.

Over recent years, we've seen increased demand for a product that will solve this often inevitable problem with such a popular natural stone. Let's face it, who wants to spend £1,000's of pounds on landscaping around a swimming pool, installing a huge limestone patio or creating a beautiful bespoke paving installation around their property only to find out that after a short while it looks dull and lacklustre?

At last the scientists at Azpects have come up with an easy to use solution and as the name suggests Back to Black brings Limestone right Back to Black. 

Amazingly, this product is not a paint!

5 types of GIF for great marketing

Tuesday, 14 March 2017 10:16:23 Europe/London

Architectural GIF

Marketing Hard Landscaping Products can be a challenge, how much can you say about a roll of ground stabilisation membrane before it gets boring?

Natural stone paving and paving compounds or jointing compounds offer a bit more scope because if a company has quality customers, as we do, it's a pleasure publicising the excellent landscaping projects they've created using the products we've supplied them. If you've seen our Landscaping Awards 2016 article or our Supreme Landscaping Products USP article I'm sure you'll appreciate just how rewarding that can be. (I must send a huge thank you to all the customers kind enough to include the products we sell in the project photographs they send us). 

However, when it comes to marketing, you've got to capture people's attention and you've got to capture it quickly. If, like us, you want to get potential buyers to your website to see all the great hard landscaping products you've got available for them, you've got to create some interest and fast.

Here's 5 types of GIF that will definitely help you do that.

Pothole Art at London's Tate Modern? Really?

Tuesday, 7 March 2017 12:53:39 Europe/London

Pothole art from Supreme Landscaping Products

It's been almost a year since I originally wrote an article enititled 'Pothole Art at London's Tate Modern? Really?'

Clearly, for some people, potholes have become more of an issue since I wrote that article, as the GIF above highlights, but 12 months down the road (pun intended) are potholes art?

Or maybe, to you, they're still just a major issue?

How's that craving for paving?

Monday, 27 February 2017 10:06:08 Europe/London

New paving products from Supreme Landscaping Products

It's no secret that around this time of year people get a craving for paving.

Whether it's cleaning their existing paving, patio or decking or simply ripping up the old slabs or decking and starting all over again, you just can't stop them. It's absolutely true, come spring time that craving for paving is a force to be reckoned with and as a consequence our sales pick up very, very significantly and very, very quickly. 

Why the rush? Simple, people want to get their paving, patio and decking jobs finished as quickly as possible so they can start enjoying the spring and summer weather ASAP and who can blame them?

That's why the hard landscaping sector is renowned for being a tad seasonal; the fact that some of our products, EASYJoint being the prime example, can be used pretty much whatever the weather really helps, but people still tend to think patio, paving and all things hard landscaping once spring arrives.

Are you ready for this?

Officially Spring will be here in 2 days, it's starting Wednesday 1st March and thankfully, we're ready for the action to begin.

You're probably wondering why we're so confident..?

Why we put the rock on our website

Monday, 20 February 2017 11:21:49 Europe/London

No, not the rock from Supreme Landscaping Products

When I told my colleagues I was going to write a blog article about the rock availability at Supreme Landscaping Products, it certainly raised an eyebrow or two.

So I guess I should explain, we haven't actually got The Rock, but we have got the rock, we've got the pebbles, the boulders, the gravel and the decorative stone too!

It's all part of our growing range of hard landscaping products and that's not all...

Stone Grey or Mushroom EASYJoint?

Monday, 6 February 2017 12:10:17 Europe/London

Mushroom or Stone Grey EASYJoint

The rise and fall of any brand or product popularity is often a tough one to quantify.

Things don't just happen, there must be a reason for changes in brand and product popularity, right?

Sometimes a company, in any given sector, can spend a fortune on advertising and promoting their brand and products, and sales actually fall instead of increase. This is never good, but sometimes it's easily explained. Some campaigns (often the most expensive) try just a little too hard and often it's kind of obvious, consumers hate desperation.

How to get quality content and how to blog!

Monday, 23 January 2017 13:47:10 Europe/London

It's all about content


A lot of landscapers and builders are visiting our website regularly now to read our blog posts, which in turn of course, increases our online website sales. 

Why? Simple.

The hard landscaping products we offer are all here and why wouldn't you take a quick look whilst reading the latest blog post? New products are being introduced all the time.

It's during this process that landscapers and builders are beginning to appreciate that both social media marketing (SMM) and blogging offer huge value. They don't really take as much time as people imagine.

The bottom line is that practically everyone searches on Google (or Bing) nowadays for whatever they need, not just games and toys, books and DVD's, but also landscaping and construction products. Yellow Pages are so 1980's and 1/2 page glossy magazine adverts are expensive and just don't work, even in the most prestigous landscaping, construction and building magazines..

Social media marketing and blogging are the answer and they're easy...

Amazon: How to handle a bad review

Thursday, 19 January 2017 11:28:10 Europe/London



Buy EASYJoint online



Maintaining a perfect product profile as an E-commerce company is not an easy task. However, working on the historic premise 'The customer is always right' means that complaints have to be dealt with fairly and promptly. They really can't be ignored.

The biggest issue with any product that involves usage, or some kind of application, is that people don't always read the instructions. Sadly, even some experienced builders and landscapers neglect reading the instructions. This approach is not recommended.

How I spent a whole month on LinkedIn last year

Supreme Landscaping Products on LinkedIn

I've been on LinkedIn since 2010 when the social media platform for business 'slipped into hyper growth' and it seems to me that it's a platform no business can afford to ignore completely.

However, I've been looking over my LinkedIn activity for 2016 and wondering if it was time well spent or not.

Find Products for your customers, Seth said

Thursday, 12 January 2017 14:50:17 Europe/London



Having been involved in social media and social media marketing since the early days, I've always been a big fan of Seth Godin and if you don't know Seth check him out, he's all over the Internet and his advice is inspirational. 

It's been a while since Seth said: 'Don't find customers for your products, find products for your customers.' Wise words, I'm sure you'll agree and it must be an easier approach to business whatever your products are and whatever sector you serve. 

On that note, we've found a pretty amazing product for our customers! What a great start to 2017!

Landscaping Awards - The Contenders

Wednesday, 4 January 2017 10:54:23 Europe/London

Supreme Landscaping Products Customer Recognition

Supreme Landscaping Products had a record breaking 2016 and clearly, we couldn't have acheived such great results without our customers.

Our philosphy has always been to provide the best possible products, the best possible online merchant service and the best possible delivery, accompanied by competitive prices. It would seem that our philosophy has paid off.

Based on our successful online development during 2016, our significant growth in sales across our product range and the way landscapers and builders have embraced our 'Customer Recognition' articles here on our blog and on LinkedIn, it seemed like a good idea to show some appreciation.

In 2017 we're expecting to see the inclusion of 'Stone' Globe Light and Border Stoneware statue projects, however, this year the award is focused predominantly on paving, driveway and patio landscaping projects, here's a list of contenders.

This article has been written particularly for anyone who is not completely aware of the Supreme Landscaping Products USP. Although we excel at offering great hard landscaping products, competitive prices and fast delivery, our USP is not just about these things, as you will see.

So What is Growth Hacking? (part two)

Wednesday, 21 December 2016 15:35:06 Europe/London

Growth Hacking for landscapers and builders

If you've read "So What is Growth Hacking? (part one)" published on LinkedIn back in April 2016 and here earlier this year, you'll know that growth hacking is about using social media, digital marketing and other various means of communication to get your company message or brand out there and build up your user base.

Growth hacking is an alternative to wasting lots of money on traditional advertising, it's embraced by start ups with small budgets and lots of enthusiasm. The term was originally coined by Sean Ellis back in 2010, so it's not something particularly new, apparently the term refers to someone who is clever, original, or inventive.

As far as I'm concerned, growth hacking shouldn't simply be about social media and technological integration, but it should also be considered a way of using traditional marketing methods differently and more effectively to create growth.

Craig Nester from Habitat Landscapes and Supreme Landscaping Products

As one of the UK's most prominent online hard landscaping product merchants, Supreme Landscaping Products meet a lot of landscapers, builders and landscaping architects during the course of a year, some are good and others are quite amazing!

You don't have to be one of our big customers and buy £1,000's worth of products every week or even every month to benefit from the Supreme Landscaping Products Customer Recognition scheme, in fact a single order will do it if your landscaping photographs are impressive enough! Habitat Landscapes from Bedfordshire have only had one pallet delivery and this is their second article in two weeks. Why?

The answer is simple, they do amazing work and they also win awards.
